Always give credit where credit is due!


Anytime you use photos or copy from another source, you need to reference the source. The best policy is to link to the original picture or text. Most people don't mind having something they've posted used again to illustrate a point. But if the information is copied and unaccounted for, it gives the impression you created it, which is unfair to the person who's original work it is.

Thanks for sharing that! Most people think that if it's on the internet it's a free for all. And as a photographer, it drives me batty. ;)

(I thought batty would be a good adjective since, well, it's almost Halloween)

Exactly... Too many people using photos and giving potential clientele the false impression that they created the design/work. Thanks for posting this...

By the way, I would love to meet with you sometime. You designed one of my client's invitations for her January wedding. Beautiful work.
