The "Issue of Usage of Images in ArticlesI want to solve this issue of usage of images in articles once for all. The image posting guidelines are too complicated and my two years of experience in Techulator left me with even more confused state of mind than before regarding this matter.
As a writer and not being a journalist, it is not expected of me to roam around the world clicking original photos for each and everything I write. What I understood so far after going through all the rules and regulations are that:
Neither am I supposed to use photographs posted by others on the net, nor am I eligible to use a photograph given in the official website of that product.
Neither I can take a screenshot of any product, nor I can copy the image, edit it and use.
But the most confusing part is, I've tried all of these (without knowing that it is not allowed), and some of them got accepted, while others got rejected.
Once I was told by the editors that I should acknowledge the sites from where I have taken the images, and it was accepted. The next time when I did that sincerely, it was not allowed.
I request all the friends, editors and webmasters to help me out from this mess, as without images the articles look so drab and uninteresting. Awaiting your kind responses.
