January 18, 2008, Newsletter Issue #47: Can I Download and Use Images I See Online?

Tip of the Week

Before downloading any images you find on your computer, you should review all applicable copyright laws. Images seen online might legally belong to someone else. But also, images used on the Internet are likely to be a low dpi, or resolution. This makes them easier to view on a monitor. If you try and download a photo from the Internet, you are likely to get a poor resolution and one that would not suffice for printed material.
