These backgrounds, or other content, (in whole or in part) may NOT be sold, distributed, or used as a base to create variations or "new" backgrounds in any manner to be printed or sold to background companies without expressed, written permission from Heather Michelle Chinn at Heather@HeatherThePainter.com
You agree to terms of use upon download which include not sharing, selling, or re-packaging these documents in any form to be used as stand alone products. You may use them within your artwork, but please don't repackage and sell them as standalone transparent files. I have seen my backgrounds sold as backgrounds on Etsy before. Please don't do it.

Backgrounds, textures, collections, or any files downloaded from this site (including the online library) MAY NOT BE UPLOADED in ANY iteration INTO ANY AI (artificial intelligence) programs such as but not limited to Midjourney, Dall-E, NightCafe, Images.ai, Deep Dream Generator, ArtBreeder, StableCog, DeepAI, StarryAI, and/or FOTOR. This is agreed upon download. You are encouraged to either use the backgrounds in your photographic edits, OR to use them as painterly bases to take into a program where a human user controls the brushwork in the digital painting such as Adobe Photoshop or Corel Painter for a client file (subject over top of the background in a flattened delivered file). 

The Backgrounds and Backgrounds Collections may be used as layers, or textures while editing your artwork for both commercial (ie: photography studio needing to change a backdrop in their portrait subject's edit) and personal use. The backgrounds/textures may not be (modified or not) shared, repackaged, resold, copied, or redistributed in any way to be distributed as backgrounds/backdrops/textures for re-sale or distribution. This is agreed upon download. Backgrounds may not be sold, licensed, or distributed in a way that permits Licensee’s end users to extra or access the backgrounds as a stand alone file or PRINTED. Each purchase is copyright protected and only available for a single user. All backgrounds remain property of Heather Michelle Chinn.
