Do I need to give credit to photos I purchase from istockphoto?

  1. I have purchased photos from istockphoto and have used some for my blog, including my home page. A friend recently told me I should give credit when I use these type of photos? I thought since I paid for them I had the "right" to use them in this manner (as opposed to selling the image or to make money in some way from them).

    Can you let me know if I am being compliant?


    The blog I need help with is

  2. You need to read the purchase agreement and terms of service, copyright guidelines at istockphoto and see exactly what they require - sometimes you are required to credit the original source and sometimes not - that is determined by the original copyright owner.

  3. thanks!
