Finding Images For Your Blog Posts – Saturday Sharefest!

New to SITS? Welcome!! Go read this to get started.

Welcome to the weekly blogging tip and comment game! This week I’m talking about finding photos for your blog posts.

As I wrote in a previous Saturday tip: photos in your posts are good. But how do you find photos and properly attribute them?

I think a lot of bloggers could benefit from learning what the rules and etiquette are for posting photos other than their own. And, hopefully, you could hook us up with a couple of sites where it’s totally okay to take the photos without worrying about violating copyright or creative commons or hurting anyone’s feelings or whatever.

The rules are simple: unless you have taken a photo yourself or obtained the photo from a PR person, you should credit the source. Simply add a line at the end of your post that says “Photo credit:” Following is a list of ways to find photos for your posts:

Now, let’s play a game! Here are the rules for the SITS Saturday Sharefest:

  • Leave a comment here with a link to one of your best blog posts (or just your main URL if you prefer).
  • After you leave your comment, visit the link of the person who commented BEFORE you.
  • Comment on their post and be sure to say “Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest” in your comment.

Now, go leave some comments! And please visit my new blog – Mom, Reinvented. I’m giving away a Printies Pet Design Studio Kit, along with two other great giveaways!

    I totally had my hand slapped once, so this is a fabulous PSA. I had credited the site, but they only allowed links to be used. Lesson learned!

    Great list of resources.

    I would love to add, PLEASE do not ever use photos from another blogger without prior permission, not even with a backlink or credit to that blog.

    I think I can safely speak for food bloggers as a whole when I say we are very protective about those photos – the recipes are our creations, our physical work is involved doing the cooking, and it’s our camera work & editing – not some fake food styling done in a studio for a corporate test kitchen! Off soapbox now… :)
