Image Credit Help
We take copyright and intellectual property very seriously here. While we encourage you to enhance your work with images, we want to respect the hardwork of the creators themselves.
Please note that you are only allowed to post images that are allowed for commercial usage since you are being paid for the article.
Also note that we need the URL of the page the image is on and not a URL to the image itself. So if it is a blog, then we need a URL to that specific blog post, not the blog itself. If it is on a picture sharing site, such as Pixabay or MorgueFile then we need the URL where you got the image, not just Pixabay or MorgueFile.
Here are some examples of invalid image credits
- Pixabay or www.pixabay.com
- Sunset Japan Ship at Pixabay
Here is a valid image credithttp://pixabay.com/en/sunset-japan-ship-367733/
It is not required to be a clickable link (although that would make things easier), but now we can now look at that page, see the image and also that it is available for commercial usage.
What if the image is mine?
Then simply put "Mine" or "Photo by Me" or something along those lines in the image credit box.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this policy.
