Do the shapes only work with CS3?

Are these CC licensed or what? I'm not seeing licensing information anywhere.

Um.. ThIs is great stuff, but the guy doesn't seem to ever link to the people who made it. And most links go to rapidshare..

Smells like pirate bay for designers, which is sort of a bad idea if your doing work that's to be used commercially.

Aha.
Links may contain original and commercial source files. I advise you not to use files in commercial purposes!
Important point.

Hm it's not necessarily free stuff then, is it? Will change tags.

"My name is Stanly, I am web-surfer with more than 10 years experience."

Man, good for you. I'm glad he's fully qualified when he's out "repurposing" people's shit and giving vague, half-hidden warnings about how it "may contain original and commercial source files."

Still, there's way more to be upset about this morning that this small-time dirtbag, I guess. I just loved the qualifictions quote, is all.

Sweet, the foliage shapes alone made my day!

Too bad the source is so murky.

Hey, it's called "sampling". What are you, the RIAA?

Vecteezy and Brusheezy do the same thing, but with clearer licensing terms.

Pretty neat little resource - I liked some of the files, but two things are concerning me :

1. I rarely do non-commercial work. I'd hate to use some of these files in a commercial project and get a "hey! that's my ______ resource! It's not for commercial usage!" e-mail/complaint.

2. Most of the downloads are done through Rapidshare, which apparently thinks bandwidth costs what it did in '96 and only lets you download one free file a day.

But I'm open to other suggestions (such as Adobe's exchange site, which has a terribly broken search engine) from anyone lurkin' the thread.
