Thing #5 invites you to play with pictures! How fun! Which option are you going to choose… Option A or B…? Are you posting a photograph taken by you or someone else? If you’re “borrowing” a photo, do you have permission to do so? Have you considered copyright?? Are you familiar with Creative Commons? Learn all about it here!
Confused?! Scared to use “found” objects? Don’t be! Just be aware of the works you include… and share your own creations. From the Creative Commons website:
CC Licenses work alongside copyright
Creative Commons licenses are not an alternative to copyright. They work alongside copyright, so you can modify your copyright terms to best suit your needs. We’ve collaborated with intellectual property experts all around the world to ensure that our licenses work globally.
Flickr has many groups on their site who promote Creative Commons and share their photographic works with permission for others to use. You can find many of them here.
