Getting and Posting Images

Manipulating Images

Getting Permission

  • It is always safer to ask permission to use the images you take from books and websites. For background on copyright see: Ethical and Legal Use of Digital Media
  • Here's a script for asking a publisher for permission
  • If the image is from a book, then call, email, or write the publisher. Contact information can be found in the following sources: International Literary Market Place (New York, R.R. Bowker Co.) Call number Z291.5 .I62 or The Publishers Directory (Detroit, Mich.: Gale Research Co.) Call number Z 475 .B77.Both are near the Information Center on the 2nd floor of the Graduate Library.
  • If the image is from a website, try find contact information of the site's copyright-holder (Often at the bottom of the main page).
