    Greetings, Destiny94! You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe.

    Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: https://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

    In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post.

    You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion.

    Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

    You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here and can be rigorous.

    Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. This feedback may include criticisms as well as kudos. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

    Any and all disputes between you and your clients should be handled off-site.

    Thanks,
    Becca

    P.S. I usually use Facebook for image hosting. Standard directions follow ...


    To insert an image, first you upload the image to a website of some sort -- your own site, Shutterfly, Flickr ... whatever. Personally, I use Facebook: opening an image in its own tab there generates a dedicated URL. Once you have a URL that will lead you to the photo on the web, you come here, start to compose a post, put your cursor where you what the picture to be, and click the image button up among the composition tools. It has a teeny picture of the Mona Lisa on it:



    You'll get a set of image tags:

    [img][/img]

    You paste the URL for your image between the tags:

    [img]http://theaposition.com/robertfagan/wp-content/uploads/sites/33/2012/04/happy.jpg[/img]

    That code generates this:



    If you need to adjust the size of the image, you can add a height tag inside the image tag brackets:

    [img height=200]http://theaposition.com/robertfagan/wp-content/uploads/sites/33/2012/04/happy.jpg[/img]

    Result:



    [img height=80]http://theaposition.com/robertfagan/wp-content/uploads/sites/33/2012/04/happy.jpg[/img]

    Result:



    This is especially useful when posting covers, since those images tend to be gigantic.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Hi Destiny94.

    So on your website in the "Terms & Conditions" page:

    https://www.vibrantdesignscovers.com/terms-conditions

    Under "Copyright" it says:

    "Client is responsible for following the licensing rules of the images and fonts used. Designer is not liable for Client misuse."



    1.  Are the images and fonts licensed for unlimited use, or are they licensed for a limited number of uses?

    2. How do we know what other usage restrictions there may be on the images if we don't know where the images came from before we purchase the cover?

    Up at the top of the terms and conditions it says that the photos included in the price come from depositphotos.com.

    Print is the full book cover. So you can choose the $20 for just ebook but with print it is another $10 added to the package. Let me know if this answers your question!  ;)

    Also, print for the premades is also another $10.
