You know that on the course they give us a link for the image. How can we make or own and avoid to do copywrite?
Preparing images for the web is a whole area in itself but I can share some tips:
For free software to create your own images - I like GIMP (It’s a free counter to Adobe Photoshop)
If you just want to find images that will not run into Copyright infringement, I like to use pixabay.com but also using Creative Commons Search (now openverse) can help you with finding images you can use
Finally, you will need somewhere to host the images, like server space (You could make a small website on GitHub in the future) so when working on the website locally, you will be able to see your links, but there is a bit more to it as far as absolute versus relative links (which is a web topic for down the road)
Hopefully that gives some food for thought
okey, thank you very much!!!
In the last cohort we had a discussion on this topic: How to link the image used for tribute page on my desktop
I think the discussion page kept going from the last cohort so you should all be able to read those too?
I hosted images on github, which took a bit to figure out. For my projects, I sourced free images from unsplash, and attributed the artists/photographers in my footer section. At first, I used the cat photo as a placeholder and worried about getting the code right, and later got all my images working. Hope that helps!
I use Unsplash a lot. It has tons of free images.
Yeah, I can see the discussion. Now I understand much better, thanks!
