Using Images from the Web by Sherrie Lee

  1. 1. USING IMAGES FROM THE WEB No strings attached? © 2014, Sherrie Lee
  2. 2. Respect Copyright Any creation, image or otherwise, is copyrighted whether the symbol © is used or not. That means you can’t copy and use them as if you owned them - you don’t!
  3. 3. Images that you can use legitimately without paying for them fall into three categories. Go Legit Public domain Free stock images Creative commons Credit the creator or acknowledge the source where required.
  4. 4. Public Domain Refers to material that is ‘publicly available’ and not covered by intellectual property or copyrights.
  5. 5. Wikimedia Commons has categorised public domain images in various categories such as objects, animals & plants, nature & science, history, country and art. The resource page also lists many collections ranging from user generated content to historical images.
  6. 6. Free Stock Images Stock photos refer to semi and fully professionally taken photographs which can be used for creative or business purposes in lieu of hiring a photographer for a given project. Usually, users retrieve stock photos from stock photo websites, which often license images for designated one-time uses, or sell royalty-free rights to photos that can be purchased once and used repeatedly. The use of “free” in this case means not having to pay for the licence to use the images. May require attribution in some cases.
