Reference Photos for You to Use

This is an album for us all to add our own personal photos that you would like to share with the group and allow others to use.

To add your photos - just upload them and add the word "Reference" in the title. In the description add the location or any other helpful information. I will add them to this album.

I will also add this message to your photo:

"This is an image that I personally photographed. It is available for your use as a reference photo for painting. You may use the resulting painting in any way you wish, including commercial"

So you can see you are agreeing to let people use their painting to keep, sell, make prints or cards, whatever they like.

I will also add Tags that will help us to search for the photos by them.

Have fun! Can't wait to see your photos!

If you want it to be added to the album - instead of in the comments - just add it as you would any photo - in the "photos" tab. I'll add it to the album from there.

Sorry, I just realized you were asking me about uploading photos in your previous comment, not downloading! Ha :) 

In general if you are having problems, switching to the desktop version helps.

Hi George. When you find a photo you want, just right click on it and choose "save photo as" and save it to your computer...

I uploaded it, but it went to my album and the "all Photos" album. How do I get it to the reference album?

i have a poppy field. I'll send it.

Help please. I am looking for reference photos of a field of poppies, and a few closer versions as well. My sister in law has asked if I can paint her something to help remind her of the poppy fields she saw on her trip to Italy.

What's new?
