Copyright Question

All fellow bloggers,

Where do you find your non-copyright pictures for your posts? I was just contacted by a photographer whose picture I had used in my last post. Apparently I am not able to use just any picture that comes up on google images. This is news to me. So I am wondering where the best websites are to use royalty free pics to make my blog look pretty! Let me know what you use!

And to make sure that I am compliant with all copyright rules, I am using a picture from my own collection. Enjoy!

This is my sister-in-law (on the left) with her friend showing off their coffee mask. Cute, huh?

Donette, I did some googling and if you just type in "pictures for blogs" you will come up with quite an assortment of options - many of which offer free photos for posting. I haven't checked them out specifically to see if there are any other catches (like advertising their site on my blog) but I think you should find something! Have fun!

I struggle with the same, so thanks for the warning. I've never had that happen yet. I mostly try to stick to my own stuff, but some things you just HAVE to find pictures for!

Hmm. . . what does a coffee mask do for you? I'm not too opposed to putting coffee on my face! Maybe you should post the recipe!

Thanks for the tip, Tina. I will check it out for future posts. By the way, are your pictures copyrighted? I could just right click on all your great flower pics! ;)

Gretchen, I should try to get the coffee mask recipe. I don't have it written down, but it is supposed to "perk" up your face. My sis-in-law has a ton of natural mask recipes. Good for your skin, and then you can eat or drink them! LOL!
