Hi, can I use photos from unsplash.com or another image bank?

Hi @danielchinchia! Not for this contest, I’m afraid. With an Elements subscription you have access to 280,000+ photos so there’s no need to use any other repository. This contest is aimed entirely at Elements subscribers. Thanks for understanding! :slight_smile:

At the risk of bringing up the elephant in the thread… have you just downloaded the items and then directly re-uploaded them here, without making even the slightest of changes?

I’m one of laziest people you could hope to meet, so I have to commend your initiative, but you think you’d at least change some text, maybe some colours, combine two or more items, or even just remove the marketing stuff like ‘500+ clip art included’.

That being said, if you do win, then I shall raise a glass of the good stuff in your honour, and say: “Well played sir… well played”.

Edit: Wait a minute… they’re your items! That is some next level stuff right there… initiative level over 9000! Do you have a subscription though?


I hope you like it my entry…

Just a reminder…
As per the requirements in the first post, you have to use at least 3 items in your entry:

A question:

Is my entry correct or misleading? Because I have read the rules need 3 more items, problem I do not understand very well in English. Greetings.
