Hello, been lurking for a while but finally decided to sign up.

Ive been tossing around the idea of trying my luck at making some extra money via stock photos.

I have access to an inventory of over 80,000 parts ranging from single chips to rack mounted computer systems so taking advantage of this seemed like a no brainer....BUT many of these items have labels, logo's etc.

With the above in mind can anyone recommend some guidelines on what would be legally suitable to shoot and sell shots of?

Thanks for your time.

No, you can't show any recognizable labels, brands, logos etc.
I have seen on the info sections of some stock sites where they say to paint out any such markings.

You can clone/heal/paint out the logos for sites such as istock and shutterstock. For example, if you take a picture of a Dell computer, just clone out the dell symbol

Thank you both for the prompt replies.

Sounds like this may be rather post-processing intensive but I may still give it a shot.
