Other People’s Photos

At some point almost if not every blogger is faced with deciding whether or not to use other people’s content.  There is no guarantee you will receive responses to all such requests so it may not hurt to narrow it down to  three or four.

All of this got me thinking of an earlier post about showing appreciation through attribution,  Attribute Creative Commons Photos Like a Pro and all in all great tips, but I have one question.

This made me think of another issue that comes up a lot on the blogosphere – using other people’s photos. It’s difficult to know when it’s okay to use someone else’s photo on your blog, since every blogger feels differently about it.
