I need free images for my application. They are intended for controls ( main window / buttons / treeview icons ... ).
MY EFFORTS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM:
Searching through Internet, I was able to find many sites with "free" icons.
They are all licensed somehow ( GPL , Creative Commons and so on... ), but I know nothing about those licenses so I am afraid to download the images. I just do not know what I can use and what I can not, and reading through the description of those licenses did not help much.
IMPORTANT INTRODUCTORY REMARKS:
I am allowed to give credit to the designer, but since this is a desktop application the only things that cross my mind are the following:
- Put designer's link into source code;
- Add a clearly visible button ( on the main window ) that will open user's browser with the designer's page;
I really do not know what else can I do to give credit, since this is my first time facing this task.
When searching for free icons for commercial use, which license should I look for ( which license corresponds to my conditions from the INTRODUCTION AND RELEVANT INFORMATION section ) ?
I apologize if the question is inappropriate, I have no intention of disrespecting other people's work. This is my first time facing this problem and I just have no money to pay for the images at the moment.
If further information is required, leave a comment and I will update my post as soon as possible.
