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 that 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'll be able to select assets from different platforms such as FreshStock, Unsplash, Pexels, and Adobe Images.

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

Best Practices

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!

Go through this checklist so you won't miss vital 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 portions of the image to be used, use the annotation tool!)

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

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

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