All Design Pickle customers enjoy access to several Stock Image libraries built into our platform! That means you can browse and select stock images/assets you’d like to use in your designs.

You can access the Stock Library in the Supporting Materials section when you create requests:

Or by clicking the + Add Assets button when replying to your designer in the platform:

You can select assets from different platforms, such as FreshStock, Unsplash, Pexels, and Adobe Images.

Click the ones you like to attach your selections to your request. Add any notes regarding the images.

Whenever you are attaching stock images to your request, there are things you can add to your instructions that will help your designer understand what you want the images to be used for!

Please go through this checklist so you won't miss important information you should include in your design instructions.

  1. Should your chosen images be used in your design or only serve as an inspiration?

  2. Which parts of the image would you like to use? (If you only want specific image portions to be used, use the annotation tool!)

  3. How would you like the image to be used?

  4. What changes would you like to make to your chosen stock image if it wasn't the exact image you wanted to be used?

Communicating your ideas clearly is the best way to get the ideal results from your designer!
