I'm trying to find LEGAL stock photography to include in some of my genesis child themes that I'd like to resell. I've done a lot of digging and read of licensing terms and the only thing I can find the iStockhphoto.com extended license. It's fine but they are very expensive.
1) What do you experienced designers out there do about stock photography for your child themes for resale?
2) Is there way (legally) to take a stock image, include it in the template, but then say in your license agreement, "Hey, I included these images as an example, but you can't use these images on your actual production site. You either need to buy them individually here (link) or replace them with your own images. Is this a common approach?
Thanks in advance for your input!
I'm a developer, as opposed to a designer, but I enjoy using photos in my blogs, mainly for comedic effect. I try to respect intellectual property for photos, so for this purpose I go to Wikimedia Commons or Morgue File. They are free for the taking, although a small percentage of Wiki ones have caveats in their licensing.
The price for "free" is that you may need to hunt longer. The Wiki ones even frequently offer different resolutions for each photo.
