I'm too scared to use images!

So I know this may sound totally crazy but I am genuinely too scared to use any images on my articles. This is a serious problem for me because I know that they make ones articles more interesting and attractive to the eye. I have read the acceptable use policy here but I'm still confused about using ONLY free images. I'm not all that tech savvy when it comes to URL's etc. The fact of the matter is that I don't want to accidentally do anything wrong here so I think It would probably best not to use pictures for now. Having my account terminated here would be terrible. My granny always used to say " when in doubt do nothing." So that's my plan. I'm in doubt so I'll do nothing.

I was scared as well. Until I seen the add image on the right hand side that said "Add Image". And in one of my brave moments, I said, "Why not." I clicked on that and it brought up Pixabay which are free for you to use. And what is really nice, is that Persona Paper put the image source into your article without you having to do a thing. I just got brave a couple of days ago and now I'm trying to utilize it most of the time.

Don't be scared. Persona Paper has made it very easy for us to use images. Just follow rosepetal 's instructions and have fun choosing images for your post.

With the 'Add Image' function, they've taken a lot of the stress out of it. I also wanted to add to all the other great advice here, that using that function will automatically add the source for you so there's so no chance of messing it up. I believe in you!!

Just use the pixaby in the add a photo and it adds the link for you, or upload your own using that and type in that the photo belongs to you

I agree with the other members! There is nothing to be 'scared' about, and you have done it OK in your Bliss in the Freezer post. Just repeat that process and your 'done' :)
