What is the value of these?

    Trying to figure out the value of images like this on iStock.  They are non-editable.  I guess I would need to layer them in Photoshop/Illustrator or just put new text blocks over the existing text.  Let me know your thoughts...

    Hi David, I think the value in these types of images is when you purchase the vector image, then it is editable in Illustrator. Once you purchase the vector image you should be able to remove any parts of the image, change the colours, and add your own text. Hope that helps!

    Hi David,

    This looks like a standard vector image which is fully editable in Illustrator. From iStock this should download as a .AI or .EPS file, if you use the iStock editor before downloading, you will receive it as a PDF which is not editable. Once you have it as a vector, you can resize, adjust, or edit text as you see fit.

    So - I completely missed the fact that this IS an EPS :) - For some reason I thought it was going to be downloaded as a JPG.  This all makes sense now.  :) Feeling silly I missed that.

    Good conversation for now though :)
