    I’m wondering how you’re supposed to “link” to the author’s site on the CC Attribution License on many of these, when you use the image in a print piece, and not on the Web?

    Jim,
    I’m not sure. In that case I would contact the photographer/owner to ask for permission and see what they say.

    These are great for backgrounds to use for a variety of different sites. The textures are outstanding and the neutral colours mean there is so much that can be added to them.
    I’m interested to know, for what other designs will people be using these images for?
