Where do these images come from?
We pull images from anywhere and everywhere to get the person and pose we want. As a result, we don't have license to use many of the images for professional purposes. These images are intended for educational, personal, and otherwise non-commercial use. Join in by sending us images you've cropped for use in your own renderings.
Are you ever going to have images for commercial use?
One of the long-term goals of the site is to accumulate public domain images and those listed under creative commons licenses, and ultimately to begin to generate our own images through community photoshoots and user submission. These will be tagged as such so they will be searchable from within the main database, and assembled into their own gallery.
How to you choose what images to post?
Rule number 1: no stock photos; we want real people doing their thing. Rule number 2: represent the underrepresented. The goal is to maintain a parity of representation that corresponds to the real world and the places in which we're designing. If you feel there's a demographic missing, let us know, or better yet submit your own images to make it right.
How do you decide how to tag images?
As a project looking to challenge certain stereotypes of appearance, deciding what terms to use to tag people is one of the most difficult and controversial aspects of this site. Check out the discussion page for an explanation of our process and the thoughts behind it, and to give us feedback on how we can improve.
