Important point!!!

to make the poster
• This means we can potentially combine many
different images.
• As such gather a number of images which
could be combined.

• Images found through google will be
• What does that mean? Well they are owned
by someone who you need to get permission
• Essentially this heavily restricts what you can

Look at this image
DiDA – Sources table
Can I use it?
• In short no.
• We could ask for permission but who do I ask?
• Obviously national geographic!

But that is not where I found it....
It was found on http://www.fanpop.com/

Websites can not be trusted!!
• The last example was simple to work out who
owned it.
• But this is more the exception than the norm.
• For example look at this website

This website was
made by a random
member of the public.
The monkey image

Corporations pay big bucks for photos!
• Corporations, especially media companies,
will retain the rights to images.
• They may have paid a lot of money for them
or potentially may make a lot of money from
• For example if the BBC took a photo of a rare
animal they could then sell that as no one else
will have the image.

So where do companies get images from?
They get them from a number of sources
1) Royalty free websites
2) Take images themselves
3) Ask permission to use the photo.
• Did you know? If you send an image to the BBC
they can share it with other 3rd parties WITHOUT
your permission! Always read terms and
conditions 

Royalty free
• There are websites which either sell or offer
images for free.
• These images are known as royality free as
there are no restrictions placed on them
meaning that you can use them as you wish.
• They are sometimes referred to as stock

Asking permission
• If you desperately want to use an image you
have found on someone's website then you
will need to ask for permission.
• You need to
– Find their email address or a way of contacting
– Send an email to them and RECORD the email.
• If you cannot find contact details then you
CANNOT use it.

Formal emails
• The email must be formal. So the following is
not acceptable.
• “Can I use an image off your website for my
coursework. “
• This will be greeted with a negative response.

Being formal
• Address them by name (if you know it) or as
Sir / Madame
• Write it as you would a letter.
• Say exactly what image you would like to use.
• Explain why you want to use it and what you
plan to do with it.
• Ask nicely!
• Use full sentences and paragraphs.

• Find an image through Google images which
you would like to use.
• Draft an email to the owner of the image and
send that email to your
ICT teacher.
• The point of this activity is to ensure you can
draft a formal email, not to actually get

similar documents
