In previous posts I wrote about how to find images that have a Creative Commons licence and how to choose and apply a Creative Commons to your work It is important to remember that other people’s images must always be attributed and those which have copyright must not be used without permission. By searching for images that have a Creative Commons licence you will save yourself a lot of time.
The infographic below from Foter is a clear and useful visual guide which captures why a Creative Commons is important and explains what each of the licences represent.
Towards the end of infographic it also shows you how to attribute Creative Commons images that you may wish to use. Attributions can either be placed immediately below the image or within a blog or presentation for example, could be listed at the end.
