Do you steal photos online and use on your web sites?
Of course. Little bit of photoshop/gimp magic and you make them look like your own too haha.
I don't even use photoshop , Download rename and use
not on my website but for my dummy fb acounts
No, I either create my own images or I find images that have been labelled for reuse and then I alter them.
Only if stealing already stolen goods count. lol
Photos are rehashes/stolen moments of reality.
When you re-use a copyrighted image, you steal from a thief (=photographer).
Ha ha, I suppose that's one way of looking at it!
I don't, not worth the risk for me, especially when there are plenty of free sources where I usually find exactly what I need without too much extra effort.
hmm stock photos yes but not private i just feel guilty, probably the wrong forum for guilt haha
I would also go for the free sources and slightly alter them for usage.
No I find creative commons images labeled for commercial use with modifications allowed and modify them if needs be. If I need to use a licensed image i buy the license. I'm not preaching and I'm not concerned about moral issues I would just prefer to avoid legal hassle
think it depends where you are from. For example in india or china nobody will care about stolen pictures. Different in Europe or US
There's no reason to. Sites like Pixabay have never let me down.
If its in google images then yeah. Although i do try to find images labelled for re-use first.
Sometimes, but I alway try to find a free alternative from sites like
Yes Yes I Do,
After that I alter them a little using PS to stay away from copyright.
But I do use Pixabay to grab some bundles.
I don't want anyone to steal my content, so I don't steal content or pictures. The golden rule, one should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated. Yeah, maybe old fashioned, but I believe in Karma.
There are plenty of sources for 100% free CC0 (public domain) images, there is even an official Creative Commons search engine to find pictures (and other media like sound, videos) that are free for commercial use, from various sources like Wikimedia Commons, Pixabay or even Google Images at http://search.creativecommons.org
No. Thanks for the shares. Pixabay looks just the ticket. Most grateful
