Selecting Photography For Your Website

Using great photography and cool graphics in your website is important for various reasons. Visuals captivate your audience and draw them in to continue to look around. Without any engaging images, it is likely that you will quickly lose the interest of your readers. However, it is crucial to know that you can't just insert a picture you find on the internet on your site.

Before you put a picture up on your website, you need to know if you are actually legally allowed to use it. Chances are, the image belongs to somebody, somewhere, and that person or company has legal rights to the exclusive use of that photo. Using pictures without knowing whether you really have the right to is a huge risk. You could find yourself or your business served with high copyright infringement fines for just adding a photo to your site.

Understanding the rights for using particular images can be difficult as the terms and laws are complicated. This chart provides a quick guide to answer the question of whether you can use a specific picture or not.
