What to note when selecting your photography website templates
Have you ever started doing something innocently completely unaware of the consequences of your actions? That is why they say “information is power.” Ignorance may cost you more than you ever thought. That is why you need to research all there is to learn about a specific topic or situation you have zero experience in so you can learn everything about it.
Images found online claimed to be free for use are no different. Some of them are traps set out to capitalize from unaware subjects. Do not let one of those subjects be you.
Therefore, it’s important to note that although photography websites claim their images are free, you should still go ahead and double check their licensing instructions. This is so you can find out if they are free from copyright restrictions.
One thing to look out for is the CCO, Creative Commons licensing that marks the photos free from copyright restrictions.
The license of the images may also require you to credit the image creators when using them. So it is important to check every image since Google has no way of telling the legitimacy of every lawfully licensed image.
