Many of us grab photos from Google (guilty!) but did you know that it's against the law to use a picture that's copyrighted? Long wordy blog posts are oh-so-boring and it's so nice to add some colour into them but you don't wanna get sued in the process, do you?

Some time ago, the lovely Jenna from Fotolia approached me with a key that unlocked a big room full of beautiful, big, clear, high quality images. I pranced around in the room, grabbing the pictures and happily posted them on my blog without having to worry about lawyers and wearing horizontal striped outfits (so unflattering!).

By using images from Fotolia, you're not only protecting yourself from lawsuits but also helping out the photographers and illustrators who provided us with such beautiful images. If they can't make a living taking photos, they'll stop and we'll be back to boring blog posts =/

Here are some of the recent best sellers, which I think are just amazing..

  1. Oh my, those three last pictures are absolutely beautiful! thanks for sharing though.. oh yeah, do you think we'd get sued if we still credit the source?

  2. I don't think merely crediting the source allows you to use another person's photo.. lol Sometimes they took the photo to sell and since crediting them doesn't get them paid (and their paying clients will complain), they may sue you =x
