    If I find a picture I want to use on the net and I want to find the owner of that pictue (original source), how can I find it?

    If the owner gives permission for me to use it, what next?

    If the owner gives permission the specify how they want it attributed and you do that.

    But honestly, the effort/reward ratio is low for going to all that trouble.  It is easier to search databases of photos already under a creative commons license.

    Look for the copyright link to see if the owner has given others permission to use the picture and under what terms. Usually you'll see a CC By, (give credit and a link back to the source of the picture) or a Public Domain license. Other than that, you can look for an email address to contact the owner, if you find one, and ask for permission.

      thanks.  let's say I see a picture of pinterest. Chances are the one who pinned it does not own it.  I tried right clicking and then clicking "source", but I don't think that does it.  Sometimes I will see something that is just so perfect it is worth the trouble of asking for permission.

    The best thing I ever did for original pictures was get a camera.
