Can I show stock images on a website with ads and is it a condition to give credit?

Hello,

 

So I have bought the 750 piuctures per month package. I have a website about dogs and to illustrate how the dogs look like, I show a couple of pictures of them.

 

So I have read the terms again and again, but I can't find a 100% concluding answer for these two questions:

 

1. Can I show the licensed stock images on a website that runs ads? On the website I write factual articles about certain dog species. It's like a wiki website about dogs only. Am I allowed to run ads on this website when I'm using the licensed images? It's not a website with newsworthy content - I simply write articles about dog species and occasionally an article about "the most popular dogs of 20xx" or "this is how to groom your dog the right way".

The ads will come from Google AdSense and maybe affiliate-links. I will NOT use the images to promote products or anything like that.

 

2. When is it a condition/demand that I use credits? I'm not shy about using credits at all, but I would like to know exactly how and when to use credits?

 

Thank you.

Yes. That's essentially one of the aims of using stock images. You license an image and use it on your website. You put some text around. If your site runs adds that will be great for you so you can generate income to cover the cost and eventually make a living of it. A standard license will be OK, except if you sell (as an example) mugs with the dog pictures printed on.

 

Edit: just a second thought: 750 assets per month looks like a high number to me?
