If you are into blogging or any form of business these days, you probably know the important role played by images in communication and branding.
For most of us, it is so frustrating searching for copyright-free images online. And when you think you found one only to realize you need Photoshop or Gimp to touch it up to your taste.
Because of these and many more difficulties, must of us bloggers have resorted to ‘stealing’ images from Google and other platforms, not knowing the heavy negative consequences.
Stealing images is a very serious offense. It infringes on people’s rights, violates their privacy, abuses their work and may likely expose you to unwanted legal action. Many of us have either been victims of this or know someone who has.
