Unsplash says something along the lines of appreciated but not necessary to cite the author/photographer. If it is something you want to do I would do if oving forward but not go bak and redo them all

Hi Paul, thank you so much. I was so worried that I would have to go back and check everyone. This would take days. Now, when I first chose images, I always make a point to use free images and "license to reuse" on all my selected images. I just wanted to make sure I was safe moving forward.
I appreciate your help, I will now move out of panic mode.
Good job, Paul.

I think he was talking alt text on your images, but I may be wrong, I have been wrong one or twice before. If that's what I are talking about, the answer is yes. I would just go back when you have time and do it a few posts at time. For some reason Google likes alt text on images or their bots do. If that's what you were talking about. Please like my comments if I was right, thanks Sruffey.

Sruffey,
Yea, I know to do the alt text. What I am talking about is when I use free images from pixabay or Google images, do I need to cite the free image in my post. I hope that clear that up. johnny

Thanks wrong again, but free images gave to everyone and there is no reason to cite free images, thanks Sruffey.

Hi - not with Pixabay. It actually says it's not necessary on their website. (And the word is "cite" by the way).

Here's the lesson on adding images. I think it says what to do in there.

I have went through that, I guess my question is if I have used free images from places like pixabay, do I still need to site the source?

Ya, sorry, then, I don't know. I haven't been citing the free ones.

You are good. I probably needed to be clearer. Sorry about that. Thanks for your tips. johnny
