Tools, Templates & Assets
Tools. Products that must be installed on your computer to assist in the creation of your End Product. An example of a Tool is a Photoshop Brush, where you are required to install the brush file within Photoshop to then use as part of the creation of your End Product.
Templates. Products that require the end user to interact with the ‘Editable’ components of the Product. An example of a Template is a flyer, where the author has given the end user the options to edit the title and images.

General license overview
An End Product is your completed project that you intend to distribute commercially
End Products must greatly differ from the original product you have purchased. Changes that you make to the product must be significant enough that it does not resemble or compete with the original item. For example, if you purchase a pattern graphic, you cannot make minor changes to it (such as re-coloring it) and re-distribute the file or sell the artwork as your own. If you purchase a Plugin (Tool), you cannot add/remove any lines of code or edit the source files and re-distribute the file in any way.
Templates must be altered through copy or content changes before it can be considered an End Product. For example, if you purchase a Powerpoint template, you must make changes to the content before a client can be charged for it. You cannot sell the item as stock or re-distribute the the original files in any way.
Tools (Installable items such as brushes and plugins) can be used to create works that do not include any of the item source files as part of the project. For example, you may download a Photoshop Brush to use in an illustration you create but you cannot re-distribute the the original Photoshop Brush files in any way.
Assets can only be used as minor details in your commercially distributed End Product. For example, you cannot purchase an illustration and use that as the stand alone graphic for t-shirts that you intent to sell.
Fonts can be used in various ways, provided that 1) the Font Software cannot be extracted by anyone except yourself and 2) you don’t primarily use letterforms of the font in your commercial works or intend to sell physical or digital products without significant artistic use of the Font Software.
Items that are installed on your computer/device to assist in the creation of your End Product. Examples of installable items are Fonts, Photoshop Brushes and Plugins.
Yes, with the Single-Use license you are permitted to create one End Product for a client. If you purchase a Multi-Use license, you can create unlimited End Products for any number of clients. Product source files are for your use only and may not be given to a client or provided as part of an End Product intended for commercial use.
Either a Single-Use or Multi-Use license can be used. Keep in mind though that a Single-Use license only allows you to create one End Product. If you plan to sell more than one End Product then you will either need to purchase an additional Single-Use license for each new End Product you create or a Multi-Use license to create unlimited End Products.
Remember, you cannot sell or re-distribute the product source files or components of the product in any way.
No, under both license terms you do not need to credit the author. They sure would appreciate it though!
Authors set their own prices for Multi-Use licenses. Prices can greatly vary from author to author.
Authors can choose to provide a Single-Use licence, Multi-Use license or both for their products.
No, authors must use the licence options provided by Skyld. If you are seeking additional provisions for a license, please contact us.
Yes, you will however need to purchase a Single-Use license for each End Product you contribute to the stock marketplace or an Multi-Use license to remove limits on how many End Products you can upload to a stock marketplace.
You cannot sell End Products to a stock website that uses Skyld resources without significant modification . For example, you cannot make minimal changes to a texture product (example, adjusting the texture orientation or copying a section of the texture and pasting it in another area of the texture) and sell or re-distribute it in any way, it must form a minor part of a larger image/video. An exception to this rule is ‘Tools’, where you can use the Tool to create effects/designs and apply them to imagery or video to sell on a stock website.
If you have created an End Product utilizing a resources from Skyld that you intent to sell on a stock website, it is recommended that you contact the original authors(s) for their approval before submitting your End Product to stock websites.
Re-distributing any of the product source files is strictly forbidden.
