Why you should be careful in using free images in your website

You should be careful in  using free  images in your website.

Many translors have faced problems.

Very often translators  had  to face problems.

The owner of the images/photos threatens  to sue for  royalties.

They use an image search program to find their images on other websites and if you do not have license, they send you a bill.

Better use photos from FLICKR. Many Flickr users have chosen to offer their work under a Creative Commons license, and you can browse or search through content under each type of license.

Creative Commons is a non-profit that offers an alternative to full copyright.

For the owners of the photos, it means

Attribution means:


You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform your copyrighted work - and derivative works based upon it - but only if they give you credit.



Noncommercial means:

You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform your work - and derivative works based upon it - but for noncommercial purposes only.



No Derivative Works means:

You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform only verbatim copies of your work, not derivative works based upon it.



Share Alike means:

You allow others to distribute derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs your work.

If you use a photo, ALWAYS give credit to the owner.

Thank you for an excellent post. I often struggle with finding good images for my pages or blog posts. Pictures always make a page more interesting, but the copyright issue makes it hard to find good ones. It is important to respect the copyright. Thanks for the tip on flickr.
