Today, I tried downloading photos from Google Images and Flickr, but could not. The photo capsule alerted me to the fact that the site was not compatible, i.e., only jpg, etc. However, the photos I selected were jpg. I tried loading the same photos onto my computer, but ran into the same issue. Where am I going wrong?
This may be a problem with the browser. I used to have this problem when I used IE , after shifting to fire Fox and chrome these problems do not arise. Try using another browser.
Google images i.e. that is the photos and images on Google images may not be copyright free. It is better to use a site that clearly has photos that are free to use in your articles.
One problem that may occur if you use images here that the photographer has 'watermarked' you will eventually be asked to remove that image.
I have photos on Google that have very 'subtle watermarks' on them because I do not wish people to use my images without my consent.
Google images does not ask permission before gathering up images from blogs and hubs and putting them on their images search.
