I feel that the internet has gone a long way and there are now some great techniques and tools that you can utilize to avoid this issues. None of these techniques are germane or specific to a ...

Depends who you're talking about, but there are several options. Some sites actually send people to events and get their own photography. There are also services that do licensing for this sort of thing. Off the top of my head, Getty Images is obvious, and the Associated Press has a separate dedicated image service, as does Reuters. There's also WireImage, ...

The best solution I can think of is to use Twitter cards. This will mean though, that you would have to create a page for each image that you'd like Tweet-able - you may be able to get around this with some sort of lightbox iframe. <meta name="twitter:image:src" content="IMAGESOURCE"> It looks like a lot of people are searching for the same thing as ...

It is good to use creative commons attribution images. You can use images in flickr which are under creative commons attribution and share-alike license. That way you're taking permission from author for the image reuse and also crediting him with the backlink. There is also pixabay that offers creative commons images or free images. They have a limited ...

At least some major newspapers regularly infringe copyright. What other people do isn't an indicator of what's legal but what they've managed to get away with doing. Also, most forum posts hotlink to images rather than upload them to the forum's server. The question of whether that can infringe on copyright is an interesting one, because if an image is ...

Legally, you can't republish photos without permission. However, millions of photos are licensed by their owners under Creative Commons licenses that do permit some kinds of reuse, and you can find them by using the advanced search options on Flickr or on Google Image Search.

You can store the photos just as they're uploaded and resize them in CSS. This is really the best option for displaying full screen, because you don't know what size screen your users will have. However, the obvious limitation is that if you change the aspect ratio the photos will look wrong. Your options for photos which are in a different aspect ratio ...

If you want to do a good job, you should design a website with the architect's customers in mind. If images/drawings are necessary to convince his customers to hire him, than images will have to be produced. It may cost more, but without those images the site may not be effective at all. A breath-taking design is what customers always demand, because it ...

There is no standard as icons can be of any size depending on how they're going to be used. The most common sizes I've seen based on icon sets I have downloaded are: 12x12 16x16 32x32 64x64 128x128 256x256 Do you see a pattern here? update There are no default image sizes for websites as a whole. Dimensions are dictated by how the website needs to ...

I can only answer this from the US perspective. There are many photographs as well as artwork that falls into the public domain category. Additionally creative commons is acceptable if the publisher specifically says it okay. You may not simply use the link to the pic as your image source, thinking that you are doing them a favor because this is a ...

This appears in multiple parts of the terms of service (indemnification, limitation of liability, user representations). If you're in the U.S., make sure to comply with DMCA safe harbors and add that language to your TOS as well.

On any page that uses the content licensed under the CC Attribution 2.0 Generic licence must contain the link to that license and the appropriate credit. If you use a lot of content under this license you might find it easier to put the link to the license on every page, most likely in a footer. But the attribution must be specific for each piece of content ...

Without looking, I'd bet it's in their TOS where uploading is their agreement that they are guaranteeing they own the rights and, if any legal problems arise, the uploader takes full responsibility.

If they have a lot of photos using a hosted service like www.smugmug.com could be a nice option. They also allow you to embed galleries on your website, but all the uploading and arranging is done on their website.

It would be helpful to know which gallery you will be using on the frontend. For example if it was Galleria or similar or something different. With that said, I will add some options for you to checkout as well. I find clients really enjoy SlideShowPro Director. It's a commercial product though, is well worth the price. GalleryCMS is a free CMS for ...
