I know this is a slightly different subject, but I am wondering if anyone knows what the law is regarding photographs of objects to use in layouts. Personally, I prefer to have photo-realistic elements. For example, instead of creating "fake" buttons in PS, I want to use real photos of buttons. I also love to take photos of silk or other flowers. I want real photos of ribbon, string, yarn, and beads. These seem like pretty general craft items that would be difficult to claim a "copyright" on, but what about appliques or charms that are a specific design? I would like to sell kits with realistic items in them, but I have no idea what the law would be about this. It seems like fair use law doesn't totally apply here. Does anyone know? TIA
