All About Copyright & Usage

A successful web page article begins with an image, graphic or great photography. If you have a camera, then the images can be all shot by you, and used for all your work. However, if you find yourself unable to capture the perfect image, or are far away from the topic that you are writing about, it is necessary to find pictures for your article.

Finding a picture and simply using it on your page, now matter how genuine your intentions are, will probably land you in hot water with the person owning the rights to the picture. In other words, do not simply copy and paste images from other websites or blogs without permission. You should always receive prior approval or know all the usage rights before using an image.

If you are looking for sources for photos and abstracts for backgrounds, or images to describe or highlight something in an article, here are several sources for free pictures that can be used for both personal or commercial usage. As always, double check the details for each picture for usage rights and credit where needed, appropriate, or as necessary.
