Looking for the owner of these backgrounds!

Hi, guys! I tried putting images, but I got copyrighted or something. I don’t really know. But anyways, I’ll just leave a link on them instead. I found these beautiful backgrounds on Pinterest. Does any of you know the owner of them? I wouldn’t wanna put them in my story without giving proper credit :black_heart: Any help will be very appreciated!

Since they’re on Pinterest, u may struggle to find an owner so if u use it in your story just put a little narration at the ending letting people know that it’s off Pinterest so u are not the creator (:

Thank you! Definitely will if we don’t manage to find the owner eventually! I really hope more people will see and respond. I’m trying to look for the owner myself, so I’ll keep everyone updated.

That’s fine, I said that since then u can’t get in trouble for taking credit & u can still use the backgrounds (:

I get it. I know how much effort editors put into their work. This one was definitely hard to make, so I wouldn’t want to offend anyone and put it in my story without even trying to look for the owner :pensive::heart:

I understand (:

Unfortunately “credit to the artist” or “credit to the creator” is not actual credit. The problem with using backgrounds you didn’t create doesn’t come down to crediting, it comes down to copyright law. Please do not use the backgrounds if you can’t find the creator and get explicit permission from them.

Just like @anon6748744 said, don’t use it, even when you credit it! Unfortunately, it can be a background which you’re not allowed to use even with credit unless you’ve paid! Better safe than being in trouble :relaxed:

Yes. That is exactly what I would like to avoid! Someone already made a mistake of putting another person’s work without giving ANY credit.

I found the owner of the backgrounds! Her user is smilla.episode on Instagram. If you use, make sure to give credit! :heart:

Uff, lmaoo, I guess they’ve used it without her permission :skull: or maybe with permission? IDK! BUT WELL DONE FOR FINDING IT!

To not cause confusion, I’ve deleted the comment :relaxed:

I remember I’ve read an episode story with this background in it! Had to waste a pass and skip a couple episodes, but it was so WORTH IT! :sob: Idk about permission, but they just posted it with no caption, no nothing. Now you all can also use it, if you’d like, and don’t have to worry about credit!:heart:

So glad you found it! I’m messaging the person to let them know that another website is using their background, just to make them aware :relaxed:

This is the google search :skull:

I remember I’ve read an episode story with this background in it! Had to waste a pass and skip a couple episodes to see the credit in the end.
Also, if you see a background with a name, you can try typing it into Episode Life website. It can be there! :sparkles:
