I've just posted this message in another forum but I think I should have posted it to this forum:

"How best to advise my users on creating artwork from stock photography

i'm near to completing an illustrated directory for products that involves product suppliers creating imaginative artwork (480by400 pixels) to represent their websites.
As most product suppliers aren't very good at producing artwork themselves I need to provide them with a comprehensive directory of sources of help and inspiration.
I am providing links to all the stock images suppliers but I'd like to be able to put them in touch with creative artwork designers who can create customised artworks for them (using their own and/or purchased stock images). What is the best way to do this? How can I arrange this so that I can be sure that all artworks in my illustrated directory have appropriate permissions?

I'm not looking to earn commissions on these artworks as I see the contribution of the images as being a big plus and I'd like to do everything I can to promote the work of the artwork designers and let them receive the full price for their work.

Comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Not sure what you're asking. If people are going to use stock imagery, they must pay to license it. If they want custom work, they can look up the photographer or artist (their name will be in the copyright line, usually) and ask for custom work.

We should start a thread listing available freelancers ... or maybe I'll do it RIGHT NOW.

Shelma1 sees custom work as being done by the owners of the copyrights. This is not how I see it. I create custom work by paying for permissions to use several images and then combining them (using Photoshop) into unique compositions. Isn't this how images are used?

I welcome blambs idea for creating a thread for freelance, custom illustrators. Please let me know when you start it.
