    Hi Everyone,

    Long time lurker but first time poster (and will be posting more often from here on out).

    My question is where do you source your images from for Instagram posts? Also, how do you avoid running into problems with copyright infringement etc?

    You can get pictures on pinterest/tumblr or other IG pages (don't forget to mention the original poster)

    As far as copyrights - you can add a note in your bio ("all credits to photographers" or something like that)

    It depends on the niche. For instance if you're doing a general fitness page with motivational quotes, no one is going to report you if you use the ones that everyone uses.

    copyright infringement is just for copyrighted material. If you are not selling it, you can use it. More details? you always can look for them in google and not in BHW (not mocking, just guiding). Good luck.

    I use facebook to get images, since its the largest and one of the oldest social networking sites it has hundreds of billions of images that you can download to use on other social media such as IG
