Since I've started writing in DJ, the illustrative part of my news articles and comments for my blog has been rather limited, not to say poor. First, I took some risks by picking photos directly from the Net, thinking each time that properly crediting the author was sufficient to avoid trouble. But a staff member of Digital Journal kindly invited me to abandon this adventurous practice.
For weeks now I have been using the Digital Journal photo gallery. Although I've been able each time to find a photo that was somehow related to the story, the choice is getting thin, to say the least, and often I must search for a while. I kept saying to myself that something had to be done about that, because I know very well that an interesting article is always more interesting if it's in good company.
The same DJ staff member had also mentioned in his e-mail the "Creative Commons Pics" in Flickr. I visited that page today.
If I understand the way it works, I can use photos under "Attribution" and "No derivative works". I wonder. Do I really understand how that works? And so I ask you, members, is this the right place to pick photos (with attribution, of course), and if not, where the heck can I find nice illustrations for my texts?
