I notice that people here don't attribute their images....with the exception of telling what's in the photo when they are their own. I see lots of familiar pixabay images, which most of those are free for commercial use with no attribution required. I think that is fine, but I prefer to label the ones that I use just so there is no confusion on where I got the image from. Most everyone knows that it's a no-no to share a google image as most of those are copyrighted. The only thing I see in the terms here is about copyright, which would include images. Is it something to worry about or do I just move on and not worry about it at all? Or maybe I'm asking this--if we see a photo shared in a post that we are sure isn't sharable, should we report it? Oh, I don't know....I feel like I am just rambling and making so sense because I'm surrounded by grandchildren who are asking me questions and my mother who is always talking.

Janet wrote about this recently here too, and I don't know why people don't take the time to credit their images. I'm guessing many don't know they could be sued for copyright infringement if taking one without permission. We got lots of practice doing this from bubblews, but for those that never wrote their they seem to be clueless.

Pictures is rather a sore subject with me. I use Flickr usually. Ramble on. LOL

I always label the photos "Pixabay: public domain, no attribution required." Always better to be safe.

I read,comment and move on. I will not be going that far to even think about the rights of a picture. reporting is not an option for me either.

I always acknowledge where the pictures come from and I assume that everyone is doing the same.

I do wish they had pixabay photos right on the site like B used to. It made everything easy.

I have not heard of anyone getting in any trouble with images, but I try to always at least label mine. If I get one online, I search for "free image". That is what I put, "free image". Mostly I just use my own.
