Is there any word on if they are trying to get permission from various yarn dealers to use their pictures? Or am I just the only person who would like to have the option of a pre-inputted picture?

You mean for your stash pictures? If you use pictures from yarn sites it's not really your stash so why do you want to use them? I'm confused... I don't have pix of my stash either.

I know it is not my stash, but their pictures look more like my stash than my pictures do. :(

I see, but I think they want to see your stash. You don't have to post one now. You can wait till you get a better photo. Mine don't look so hot either.

They're not taking the same approach as they are with publishers and designers, as far as I know. Ravelry relies on pictures from users, so if there's a yarn in need of a picture, and someone has one from their stash, they can "submit" it.

I don't think they will ever use the yarn dealers pictures. Right now they have finally gotten the okay for 2 pattern publishers to use their copyrighted photos (Interweave and someone else I'm forgetting). I would assume they have permission to use the book photos.
