This morning went really fast. Hunt Willard and Janet gave very interesting talks on science communication from two different persepectives. Janet’s was obviously geared towards to blogging. Hopefully she will posted about it in the future.
I am now in the session on illustrating posts with Ros Reid leading and discussing “Fair Use” and when we can use pictures from other people and when to ask for permission.
Places to go:
University News Archives – eg Cornell
But ask permission unless it says you can use the pictures without permission. You can’t always use the picture and link back to the original source without permission.There needs to be open source site showing the pictures. Google Image search is not the best search engine to find images relevant to the topic. You also need the metadata – what is about the picture about, who took the picture, who owns the rights to the image, how was it taken etc.
Some sites recommended as image sources were, but you might have to be pay:
The discussion seems to be mostly about copyright and fair use. Rather than how to use pictures.
