Library: Resources for commerical usage
« on: April 09, 2017, 11:35:47 pm »
Guys,

I just wanted to start a topic for beginners and profesionals where to find useful resources for designer in desktop publishing context. Often I need just a placeholder image or I'm searching for good fonts or I need a photo where I can place my design for presentations.

Some years ago I started to collect in my opinion useful resources and now I want to share some of them with you. If you use other good resources which are not listed here, please add it.

Only rule: All ressources have to be free and license have to be allow commerical usage as well.

Disclaimer: Please check the license on webpages before you use any resource.

*Product Presentation*
http://graphicburger.com/mock-ups/ (mostly layered psd files, but gimp can handle it as well)

regards,
Martin

Thanks for sharing those links Martin, I'm sure that they will be useful to many people.

A couple of years ago I created a Wiki page to consolidate lists of DTP resources https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Useful_Free_Resources but I have no idea how useful it has been. (Click statistics - if they exist - don't say whether people are actually using the linked resources.) There are also other lists in the wiki but they're "hidden" under different page names.

I think this sort of thing should have a more prominent position somewhere but I don't know how that could be done best. Searching the different forums can be awkward and a wiki really isn't the best place for it.

I could say that a standalone website - not just for Scribus but for general DTP use - might be one way to do it but that would take a lot of work and would probably be a thankless task. (Not something I'm prepared to get into.)

Maybe just sharing links from/to various lists will be enough for most people.

Anyway, if people want to add to this list then I'm sure others will appreciate it.
