Q: Can you legally use photos off the internet in your blog?
A: No, not unless you get permission from the owner of the photo.
5 Rules about Using Web Images in your Blog
Photos are copyrighted. Just as you wouldn't want someone else printing a poem you published on your blog, you shouldn't publish someone else's photo (even if you give credit). In the past, I thought it was okay, as long as I gave credit.
What to do? How do you get photos?
1. Take your own digital photos.
2. Find photos on-line and email owner to get permission to use them.
Do you have any other suggestions or tips for photos usage?
