I so ticked off. Yesterday I came across a website that had used one of my photos in a post. I decided to politely let the person know that it was my photo and that it’s common courtesy to ask a photographer permission to use their photos and or to link back to the site that you found the photo on.
The person wrote back to me basically telling me to “Prove it”. Geshhhh! They said they found the photo on Flickr … yeah in my Flickr account!
Folks, if you want to use someone else’s photos in your post ask permission. Most people will say yes if you promise to give them credit for the photo and hopefully a link back to their site.
