Image Websites


Never use images you have found on the internet or Google without permission. There is no good reason or excuse to use a photo you found on the Internet without asking the photographer who took it? "I found it on Google Images, therefore it is free to use" or "there was no “copyright” logo or any other watermark on the photo" does not make it ok. Below is some cost effective legal options.
