Check out our post on:
We would LOVE to hear where you find images for your blog posts. So this weeks Blog Talk Discussion is a 2 part question:
1) Where do you find images for your blog posts?
2) Do you store your images online? If so, where?
Google Images is great!!!
I use Photobucket right now.
Have to say im a google girl, its easy for those who are just starting...like yours truely! Im in the middle of looking for pictures for my poems page to break up the poems! at the moment its all one script
How would i get pictures in between? I use flicker too, great for my more prof photos i take!
There should be a html editor for your blog that you'll put in the image tag in between the text for the poems ....the image tag being <img src="linkoftheimage.com">
Or even if you use a visual editor (kind of like what we use to reply to these posts) there should be an icon of a little picture you can either link to a picture or upload a picture from your hard drive...I hope that helps!
I find my images on Flickr, that way I know for SURE the producers of the image are okay with others using it. As convenient as Google Images is...sometimes it can get dicey if you borrow images.
I store images on Flickr or upload directly to WordPress :)
Think of it this way, lets say you took an adorable image of your child and labeled it "smile" then someone did a Google search for "smile" and under images popped up that image you took and hundreds of people used it for whatever they wanted without giving you credit- definitively not okay with most people.
It is the exact same for all Google images- they belong to someone so you have to make sure it is okay to use them.
I use the website We Heart It! They have great girly images and the site lets you save the ones you like by "hearting" them. I would definitely recommend this site. The pictures are beautiful and its really easy to use.
Check out my blog at Books Are My Heroine to see some of the pictures I've used.
Mostly, I take my own photos!
Occasionally I will google one.
And I upload them through my blog (blogger)
