Try contacting your supplier.

Gildan and AS Colour have supplied me with a drop box link to there hi res photos.

Unfortunately not every product has a photo of the backs.

Sometimes a google search will result in a good image of a similar product even if its not exact, its only for the designer (proofing purposes). Heres a trucker hat i found thats plenty high res to use:

Just remember if its a multi-color product separate each color and name the layers as "color_1", "color_2", etc. The lasso tool works pretty good in photoshop if you've got steady hands.

Also, if one of the colors in the image stays the same, like the white face of the hat, just don't name the layer and don't change that layer to greyscale(b&w) before saving and it'll stay the same.

I would also love to see the suppliers include shots of sleeves - left and right. We get a lot of orders for sleeve decorations on apparel.

Aren't there copywrite laws to contend with? I was pulling images from Google but was told that we could get into a heap of trouble using someone else's images. Any concerns on this front?

If its posted/uploaded to a public website, non-watermarked, with no associated conditions that are clearly stated, then you are free to do what you want with it. Once the user uploads it to the internet he waives his right copyright protection, unless the image is watermarked ©. Now if someone else downloaded it from the original source and removed said © watermark and re-uploaded it to a different source for public consumption, then it's copy-write infringement, but its a huge grey area and fault truly lies on the original downloader who altered the image.

There is almost no way to control these things, not enough man power to control it all. What are the chances that the person who originally took the photograph is going to see your website, out of the billions of them on the web? And even if they did, what are the chances that they can afford legal counsel over a photograph, lawyers are really expensive.

Besides, If you are accused of infringement you could just plead " incognizance" or ignorance of the law. No one is going to arrest you unless you're making serious money directly selling it, at the very most you'll receive a cease and desist notice and be given an allotted amount of time to rectify the situation before legal action is taken.

As is my understanding, an image don't need to have a watermark or copyright symbol to be copyright protected, been up in the internet doesn't mean is free to graved it and use it for commercial purposes unless they are in the public domain or it has a statement from the owner given permission to use it.

My point was, that the whole matter is a grey area and uncontrollable, 99.9% of the time it goes unnoticed.

It could also be argued that its up to the author to responsibly protect his content and if he doesn't then he is knowingly risking infringement and should not receive compensations of any kind. Do you think a publishing company would publish a book without it being copy-writed or a record company would release an album without copy-write protection on everything from the album artwork to the lyrics, no.

Rule of thumb use photos at your own risk, make sure to read the authors content policies (if any) and abide by them.

I asked this question of my lawyer. Here's how she responded. BTW, I'm located in the US.

It would be much safer to take your own photo [of a safety vest] for this purpose. I also don’t think it would be a problem to use the photo of the vest supplier since you are buying from them and reselling the vest with the applied logo. Any other photo source could be problematic as we cannot be sure if there is a copyright in place regardless of whether there is a notice on it.

For Sleeves I used these line drawings and gave them a 50% grey fill so they would dynamically colour.

you are welcome to use these vectors as I downloaded them from www.ingimage.com/ which I have a subscription to.

There is a polo line drawing and also a T-shirt

For the backs of products I have also struggled but usually go with finding a HI-Res model shot and photoshoping the shirt off the model its not perfect but it works....

It only takes a few minutes if you use the quick selection tool in photoshop.
