Staying legal with photos posted on your own internet posts.

You've written a fantastic post about your visit to France and just need a couple of pictures to help pad it out and be more interesting, after all, 'a picture is worth a thousand words', so do you just grab one from a Google search? This 800 pixel image of Chateau Chenonceau is big enough for social media and blog posts and is only 176kb so it loads fast for your viewers. Yes you can... but be prepared for the owner to come after you for infringing their copyright after they find it being used without permission on your internet platforms. The best way to obtain pictures to use within your own web content, be that on Facebook, Blogs or any other internet platform (within reason), is to buy a licence which will cover you for the use. I allow my own images to be downloaded for such uses in two sizes on my website here...  mickflynnimages . They are all provided instantly, do not contain a watermark and are ideal to illustrate your stories and articles. News
