Does that count as copying because on my website I am doing a page on kinds of dogs. I am writing all the content myself but this a info page about different types of dogs. I am not copying other articles or words but I don't have any pics of all the dogs I plan on writing about on that page. Any help appreciated

There are places with free images, but just copying from sites of other people can get you in serious trouble. Do not do this.

Thank you for the advice I was just wondering because on each dog I write about will be in my own words and original but I don't want the info to be a blog with no illustrations on each dog that I blog. It is going to be kind of a descriptive encyclopedia page like to go along with website. Thanks again for commenting I define toy don' want to get into trouble.

You are right, without pictures it would not work. So I suggest you check at Wikimedia they have a lot of stuff of everything, mostly free to use or with very clear instructions if you need to give credits. The other is Wikipedia with similar rules.

If you are really impressed by a pic from another site ask for and and give attribution if granted. It then is appropriate repurposed content.

First off, leave a comment requesting permission and if you do not hear back, go back to the website to ensure you just were not emailed back when they responded.

If you do not have permission you should NOT steal the image. If you get permission, you still need to syndicate. Here's how;

To upload a pick from anywhere...hover over it and right click>>>> copy Image. Go to where you want it and left click to bite into where you want it>>>>right click>>>>paste>>>> go back to the website and hover over the image once more>>>>>right click>>>>copy image address>>>>> back to your pasted image>>>>left click>>>>click the little pencil>>>> in the top box write, " this picture in from>>>>right click and paste>>>."

Now you are legal mate.

Hi Chris. I am using smushit plugin. It seems to do something, but the premium version compresses more. Do you think that matters?

Would advise you not to do this. It's not legal. Pictures are subject to copyright and only if the copyright owner allows you to use their pictures can you do so. Just saying where the picture is from does not give you a right to use it unless the copyright owner has allowed it.

There are some sites out there such as pixabay which have photos for free use - just check the owners usage info.

I assumed they were talking about pictures they had permission to use. I will edit my answer.

Thank you for catching that. I guess I assume since I do things right everyone does.

When I am talking about a specific painting and then post a picture taken from a book, would it be enough to name the source, or the museum where it is?

Smushit is just that when you take the "Smu" off. They only give you 50 images. https://shortpixel.com/free-sign-up-referrer/referrer/98055 gives you a hundred and that is about all you will need a month.

Thanks Chris
I'm rather jumpy on copyright as I have people trying to steal my pics sometimes - they get slapped with an invoice and take down notice usually and an email to their ISP (sadly though it's usually Russian sites that try to do it)

I know what you mean. I have had people steal my entire posts word for word with images and all.
