Photo question.

    Hello.

    I have a Photo of the new  'solar impulse' plane that I want to use on my latest hub. I looked every but could only find the photo on news sites or their official site.

    I don't think I can use this, as it might an infringement.

    Is there anyway I can get permission?

    Any suggestion would be helpful.

    Thank you

      I would contact the news site.

      If you can't get permission that way, you could try to find it on a site like Flickr which might have the picture available under a Creative Commons license (which usually ask that you provide attribution).

      usually new products can be found as 'press releases" or "press photos" .. most likely the pics on the site were open game - but you always check each sites small print (commercial and product sites) to be sure they encourage use

    I know there are some government sites that allow you to use photos.  You might find it on this site:

    Actually, there was one on wikipedia:

      Wow, great picture

      thank you very much.     :-))))

      I checked there and got some dodgy looking thing from the stone age.

      It say I have to attribute it.

      What is the best way to do that please?

    I would just put the guys Wikipedia user name and maybe give the link where you found the picture.
