Hello friends, we usually need pictures/graphics for our post/blog to make it look more attractive and captivating for the readers. But the question is can we use any picture or image present online just like that? The answer is a big-big NO.  Using any picture is illegal and inappropriate. We must have rights of the picture that we are going to use in our blog/website or there are some royalty-free images present on the web that we can use as an alternate option. So, let’s understand how to do it.

WHAT IS COPYRIGHTED IMAGE?

Such a picture which we cannot place on our website or blog for free, and for which we have to pay some money or ask the photographer to obtain the order / license, is called a copyrighted picture or a copyrighted image.

WHAT IS ROYALTY-FREE IMAGE?

A picture which we can use without any order or without buying anything, it is called Royalty Free Picture or Royalty Free Image.

IMPORTANT POINT TO BE NOTED WHILE USING PICTURE FOR YOUR BLOG/WEBSITE

The pictures you take must not be copyrighted. These pictures should be royalty free.

New bloggers would not know that they cannot take photos from any websites like Google images.  Your account can also be banned if you use a picture without permission.  If you like a picture which is copyrighted, then you can simply buy it and use it. But if you do not want to spend money on pictures, you can easily get royalty free pictures by reading the following solutions.

SOME GREAT SOURCES FOR GETTING ROYALTY-FREE IMAGES

  1. Snap a photo from your mobile or camera: You can also take photos from your own camera or phone to insert photos to your blog or website. It will be called your own photo and you will have the rights on it. So you can use it for free.
  2. Pixabay: This is a site that can give photos for free which can be used on our website or blog.
  3. Google Images: You can also view Google Images to get free photos, though Pixabay is much better. Because in Google Images, we cannot take any picture as it is, before that we have to fill the picture name in the search bar, as shown in the screenshot below -> I have filled ‘coffee’. A lot of photographs have come out but we cannot use any of these, now click on ‘More Tools’ and then click on ‘Usage Rights’ and then you have to choose amongst two options.

These are two options, ‘Labeled for reuse with modification’ and ‘Labeled for reuse’

Labeled for reuse with modification:  You can modify the pictures that come under this option by changing some attributes. (By writing something above, changing colors, etc.).

Labeled for reuse:  You cannot change the pictures that come under this option, here, the picture is permitted to use it in the same way without any modifications.

So, in this way you can choose amongst the two options.

So, from now onwards, whenever you want a picture for your blog / website, the above methods would definitely help you. Of these, I use Pixabay more. This reduces the hassle of finding the photos and also saves time.

If you also take photos for free, from a site which is your favorite, then definitely tell us by writing in the comment section below. Hope you enjoyed reading this post.
