Adding Photos To Your Blog Posts

Date: August 14, 2014 Author: admin Categories: blogging

Over the last several days I’ve been going over your blog assignment and what I expect from you. As we’ve discussed one thing that makes a post better is to include a picture. Especially if you are writing your post about a picture. However, just like text can be copyright protected, so can images.

When you include an image there are a couple of things to consider and include. First you must determine if the image you want to use has a copyright protection. Then, if it does not, you can include the image in your post but you must cite it correctly.

Please read this article The Honor Code of a Noble Blogger: How to cite pictures. Follow the steps she’s laid out and pay particular attention to how she cites the images (look at what she did under each of the images and follow that format). That is exactly what I will be looking for when you include an image in your blog. She provides several examples but they are all essentially the same format.

Please take head and make sure you cite your images correctly. If you do not it is the same as stealing and plagiarizing and will earn that blog post a zero.
