Every time I add attribution to an image, it shows up under the image in my blog post and looks horrible. How do I avoid this while still giving credit?

Don't put it in the "Caption", put it anywhere else.

Great one Helen! I'd also add that under certain Creative Commons licences it's best practice to add attribution to the author/site etc.

Thank you, Helen:). I spent hours yesterday looking for pictures of children reading that I could use on my site. A lot of the Google pics said that they were copyrighted. I'm going to try it again:)
Blessings:)

Hi, Suzi, go to pixabay.com, in the search bar type children reading, then press the enter key, there's around 50 of them, all free to use without restriction. Hope this heps

I learned something. My teddy you see there has been stolen more than once. I saw it in the Google images but it says it is mine.

I have heard others say you can use these and it puzzled me because that's my son's old teddy and I have had it trademarked in the position it sits and used as a Gravatar.

Cool, now I know how you may us them. I just wished Google would lead off with the usable images seeing there are now three people I know of using my Bear on Facebook. Oh well, 'Tis only a bear.

Great training.

Yep. Trademarking is definitely not cheap.

I have used an image or two myself when starting off out of just not knowing better and meant no harm. I like to think the best of people.

Thank you for tracking us how to do it right. Love your style, Helen.

You can still sue them Chris! :)

Google images does not give the users a license in using them.... Read my warning article.

I have to be honest and say that it wasn't me that discovered it, but I was chatting with my daughter this morning, she is doing a masters in architecture and was talking about a structure she is designing, she sent me some images that she's used for effect, for her hand-in... I asked her where she got them from, hoping that it would be another stream of free images.... she told me about the Google Search Tools ! Awesome !
