Almost everybody’s doing it, grabbing someone else’s photos online and reposting them on their blogs with abandon, and often without giving credit to the owner. I, too, had a bit of the grabbing habit because pictures can simply enhance the overall look of a blog. And great pictures do so with better results. But I do give credit where credit is due.
However, since I worked with a client who is stringent about using only royalty-free images in both online and offline materials (fussy about avoiding copyright infringement issues), I have been too. In fact, all photos that you see in this blog are 100% royalty-free. And they all came from Stock.XCHNG–the best online source of free stock photos.
