It's been a while, so. another image use question?
For the longest time, image use was a real bugbear for me.I had a lot of hangups about it and as a result, never really used many images until I finally took the plunge and paid for a membership at a photo site. I was so happy and so relieved when WA added photos to SiteContent. Now I don't have to worry about it anymore.
The other day, I was reading up on a couple of different thinks, including some new technology in development. I thought it would be something interesting to write about on my site, but then I realised that I probably wouldn't be able to use any images for the article, which would make it a bit dull.
The item that I was going to write about is not something that can currently be purchased. There are no photos anywhere on SiteContent or other photo sites. The few articles that I read mostly used the same photos in each, so there seem to only be a few available.
What can one do in situations like this? In this particular case, I could do what one of the articles did and link to a YouTube video, but in general, if you are reporting on something that is new in the news, where would you get images? Or would you simply forgo their use?
