Why Get Permission to Use Images?
This is sometimes a legal requirement and always an issue of respect.
All online images are automatically protected by copyright which means that the creator of the image has the right to say who uses the image and how it can be used
Sometimes it is possible to use images because they fall under what the law calls 'Fair Use for Education'. There are a number of restrictions to fair use, though, and learning when it does and does not apply is tricky so we don’t rely on the fair use rule at A-S.
Getting images from places where permission is automatically granted has become very easy; bookmark this page and make use of the resources we share here.
What is Creative Commons?
Many people put licenses on their images to tell you how you may use them.
