New Content Library Photos usage rights.

First off, how awesome are the new content library additions?!  And I'm sure the library is only going to get larger and larger now that the framework is set up.  So cool.  

My question.  Does anybody know if there are any usage restrictions for the images?  Can they be included in courses intended for resale?  And can they be exported and used in Rise courses?

Hi Dan,

Glad you're loving all the new additions - we're pretty pumped about it ourselves! Good news, they're all royalty free for commercial and non-commercial use—no attribution required. So go to town! 

As for use in Rise courses, we're still working on the integration of the stock images from Content Library for import into Rise...but it's coming soon! In the meantime, you could do a "save as" or take a screen capture to create an image file to use in Rise. 

Let us know what other feedback you've got and thanks again for the praise!

I just want to confirm that all of the images are royalty free and we have the right to use these images for creative purposes.  I have found pictures of Minons, entertainers, super heroes, The Obamas and few not so flatting photos or our current President.   Articulate has paid the licensing fees for their customers to use these images for creative purposes.  Is that correct?   A photo of Obama for editorial use is $575 on Getty Images.  If so, this is an amazing feature of  Articulate 360. 

Also when I search for Crime: Illustration , a character drawing of an arabic/brown skin man with head covering appears. I find this offensive  and other may as well can this be removed ?

Hi Meenu, 

The stock photos, images, icons, videos, course slides, and characters in Content Library are 100 percent royalty- and attribution-free, so you can use them in your e-learning however you’d like.

Since Presenter/Powerpoint doesn't have all the same download options from Content Library, feel free to pull them in from Storyline.

Great question, Claudia!

You are free to use the characters available in Content Library 360 in content you intend to sell to the public. They're all royalty free for commercial and non-commercial use—no attribution required.
