Using Artwork in Your Project

Using Artwork in Your Project

So you’ve found the perfect image for your project and are not sure what the license requires of you. Depending on what you are making, the requirements can subtly change how you need to attribute the art to the artist.

The standard requirement is that you attribute the artist where you include the art. This requires including the artist’s name in an 8 point font adjacent to the art and at least 50% contrast to the page background. 

Using the art in a book

For most book products the standard requirement is not ideal, so the artist’s attribution can be in your credits. If you include the art in the credits, tabletopstock.com needs to be included in your “special thanks” section of the credits, or other similar credit group.

Using the art in a PDF or EPUB

If you are including image descriptions for the visually impared, which you should be doing anyway, the artist’s attribution should be included at the end of that description.

Using the art on a blog

Blogs and other web pages must meet the standard attribution requirements. Most blog platforms should include the ability to add alt text. At the end of the alt text include the artist attribution.

Using the art in a video

Video projects typically have credits at the end of the video. Instead of including the artist attribution with the image, you can include the artist attribution in the credits listed with other artists. If you include the art in the credits, tabletopstock.com needs to be included in your “special thanks” section of the credits, or other similar credit group.

Using the art in a collage or manipulate into a new work

Don’t. The Tabletop Stock license does not support including a product within another piece of art. However, the Tabletop Stock license is non-exclusive so you could contact the artist and try to negotiate a license directly from them to include in your work.
