PLEASE HELP ME
« on: January 05, 2015, 05:00:39 PM »
Hey there,

Please can someone help me out. Im very niave to how this stuff all operates. The Photos uploaded to this site - are they free to use, or do i still require some consent to use? For example, I have fallen in love with a photo and want to use it as an image on my website.

Anyone?

many thanks

Stef

Hi Stef,

Almost every photo on the net is copyright and so illegal to copy and use elsewhere without the permission of the copyright owner; usually the photographer or the person who commissioned him/her.

Now, personally I'm always flattered if someone wishes to use one of my pictures. I get a bit peeved if they do so without asking me and without crediting it to me. However, if you ask to use one of mine for any non-commercial purpose I'm almost certain to say go ahead.

On this site, if you want to use a photo, just ask the photographer and accept his answer.

Cheers, Simon

Many thanks friends,
I assume you go about doing this, by simply commenting on the thread below the picture? Or is there a way of messaging him directly?

Thanks again

Not everyone reads the comments, but you  can always send a Personal Message (PM).

If the person in question has recently commented in a thread, click on his/her name and you get a summary of this member. In the left hand side column there is a link to send this person a personal message.

Otherwise click 'Members' at the top of the page and find the person that way.

Good luck and welcome to the site.

PS Saw your comment, and I'm afraid the photographer has not been active on the site for some years. If he hasn't changed his email address, I think he'll still get your message, otherwise you might be out of luck. In which case: don't touch.
