Press Kit??

I know that this site is full of really smart people that write for a living, so I'm hoping that someone out there will come to my rescue.

Here's the long and short of it. I'm planning on writing a review of an app so I did some research. Turns out that on the website for this app, they have a Press Kit which has probably a dozen or more pictures that I can download and use. I did send an email to the contact, asking for permission. I don't doubt they'll get back to me, it's just a matter of when. Would I had to have sent an email, in this case? Is it better to ask first anyway? Just in case?

Also, how does one cite something like this on PP? "Press Kit. (insert website)" I think I'm stressing out about this WAY too much.

Yes, they will send you a press kit. You can send PP admins a copy of the license agreement or you can copy the URL of the license agreement. I've done both.

My advice would be to message Maelou directly and inquire about how to go about crediting the images in this specific situation, getting it directly from the horses mouth is the best thing.

I'm not sure of the answer, but it was definitely good of you to ask first. It doesn't hurt to ask, and it shows you are respectful enough to double check first.

You can post links but I do not think you can post pictures unless they are specifically for free use and a link to that effect needs to be posted in the credit section.

This sounds like a good idea to me too.
Better to stress earlier than later.

What's Press Kit? I have never heard of it.

What MelissaE wrote in her comment. Plus, I do think it is proper that you asked them first before using it.

Wish I could help but have no idea. I'll check your comments to learn something myself, lol!

If you have written permission from the copyright holders, you can use the photos. As far as how to credit the photos, you should check with MaeLou for specifics.

Always ask for permission if you don't have a clear right to the photos! It will save you a nightmare later.

As long as you have written permission to use the photos, then you can use them. As for crediting them here on Persona Paper, it's best to ask the site admins about this. Hope you get this sorted out soon.
