Protecting Your Image

2 Comments

Well, not so much your image as protecting yourself from images. Where do you get the images for your website?

If you just grab them from other sites, you could wind up with a nasty Cease and Desist letter with an hefty invoice attached.  When you get images, make sure you have a license to use them.

Here are some generally safe places to find images:

  1. Wikimedia Commons
    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Welcome
  2. Free Stock Photos
    http://www.dreamstime.com/free-photos
  3. Kaboom Pics
    http://kaboompics.com/
  4. Open Clip Art
    https://openclipart.org/
  5. UnSplash
    https://unsplash.com/
  6. ISO Republic
    http://isorepublic.com/
  7. Stock Snap
    https://stocksnap.io/

Be sure to read the terms and conditions for each site carefully. If attribution is required, be sure to do so.

If you grab images from Flikr, understand that not all images carry the “use it for free, dude” license. Read the terms for each image.  https://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/
