I find that I seldom bother adding photos to my blog posts lately, but I have learned a lot that I didn’t know about proper credit and attribution of photos and images since the time I began blogging. I am likely guilty of posting a photo without proper credit. This is the most recent post I read on the topic (via Doug Peterson). Also this post via Chris Wejr, which links another related post written by Chris.
I used to have a photo of me linked to this blog (via Gravatar). The way that the picture was showing up with posts to social media was more than I was comfortable with, so I changed it to a flower. I haven’t made proper credit to that photo. One of my daughters took it and she gave me verbal permission to use it without concern for public credit. I guess this post is somewhat of a credit and a “for the record”, in case anyone was wondering. My daughter and I are both fine with this for now, but will we regret it? It’s just a flower picture maybe… but I was in awe of how pretty it was regardless of what effect I applied to it. However, I stayed with the original colour for my “profile”.
