Okay… Talking about copyright, it’s true in Indonesia there’s no such tight rule, except copyright for song and movie which is started to be developed. However, if you do business with foreign people, online business perhaps, this copyright matter often caused trouble. SOT has a web designer friend who was charged about copyright claim because background image in website he designed in fact is license image. Hmm..
To overcome this matter, you can use public domain license image or photo. Image or photo with public domain license means you can use it for anything, except commercial needs.
For example, you use it for gift card’s image, calendar, website background, logo, shirt, etc. Everything is good whether they’re all free or you sell it. Great isn’t it? ^^
Yup.. unfortunately, there are not many images or photos with public domain license. Finding it is not easy. But today SOT will discuss a source of public domains’ image and domain which is quite complete, Pixabay!
Pixabay itself actually is a search engine, but special for various public image and photo. You can search, choose, and download various image, photo, or clip art there.
You can use it without worrying about copyright matter. For eample, if you use ebook, blog post, web design, or whatever it is, you can use image, photo or clip art in Pixabay. Until now, there’s more than 40.000 image and photo in Pixabay public domain.
Pixabay site can be visited here:
You’ll just have to insert the keywords you wanted and the public domain image will be opened.
On the right corner, you can view even set filter from searching, for example you want clip art or photo, also portrait or landscape.
If you’ve already known image they like, just click here and select the download menu. Thing you need to be paid attention is, one line of image below are commercial, and not a public domain. So, don’t select any image or photo in lowest disaster.
Now you don’t have to worry about copyright, image or photo. I hope it could be useful. :)
