Reference pictures for covers

Does anyone know any good resources for finding good reference pictures for cover art? Most preferably with romantic motives, like a couple hugging etc.

Appreciate any help! :slight_smile:


If you look on websites like Shuttershock, vectorstock etc, you’ll see that most authors use the images there as reference for their romance covers. Just search up the type of pose you desire on one of them and you’ll deffo find sum.


I’ll check it out! Thanks :smiley:

Hey! I checked the website out and there’s a lot of good reference pictures. I don’t really know how things with copyright work but are you allowed to take pictures and just freely use it as a reference, maybe change up some things? Cause according to episode, you have to have permission or something like that. :sweat_smile:
