Is it bad to print out colourlovers creations?

Showing 1 - 3 of 3 Comments
I like to use the patterns, palettes and colors on colourlovers. I have printed a few that I like to make cards. My question is: Is it illegal or considered rude to print out someone's patterns for personal use?
hmm...I think it would depend on what license they've set for the palette. :) If they've reserved all rights, printing them out goes against copyright. But I don't get the impression that many lovers would mind if you print out their work as long as you give them credit for it.
Ok thanks so much for the info. I'll make sure to give credit and check the license before printing. :)

Since Aug 2018, I can longer upload or publish templates I create using Seamless Studio. In Seamless Studio, I'll create a template, and click on "Upload to Colourlovers," my browser opens a new tab to CL but it just goes to a blank Seamless Lite page, and I am not logged in on that page. This happens whether I am already signed in to CL or not.

When I used to "Upload to Colourlovers," a CL would open on the browser saying something like "we have your template but you need to sign in." I would sign in, and my template would be ready to publish.

Hello community! Could you let us know if you're still experiencing the issues with Recaptcha and the patterns? Please write to editor@colourlovers.com
It's easier for us to keep track of what needs to be fixed this way. Thanks! :)

Thank you so much!! And I fixed the login issue today-it was a stupid settings issue on my part, not a site bug.
