Travel Photos

When I took my camera and decided to travel and take pictures, I wanted them all exclusively for myself. But now, that I am writing for a travel magazine in Vietnam, I know how valuable good travel photos are if you need them.

So I decided to give back to the Creative Commons community what I take out of the pool of free destination pictures every day. Happy blogging, writing and especially travelling!

Attribution

BY: Than means in our case here, you can use the free photos in your projects if you give proper credits and name Frank Fox or foxtravels.net as the source below the picture.

And of course, like every website owner, I would appreciate a link from your article to my site.

Official text from creativecommons.org:
Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

ShareAlike

SA: That means ShareAlike:
Basically if you yourself offer the images, original or altered, for download, you have to use the same license as I did. I picked SA mainly to keep image databases from reselling my free photographs.

Official text from creativecommons.org: ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

Appropriate Credit

The official text below about appropriately crediting free photos under a creative commons license mentions many things. But I just require my name or the name of my website foxtravels.net.

And if you can manage it, I'd be really happy about a link :)

Have an example on foxtravels.net, how to credit free travel photos:

Official text from creativecommons.org: If supplied, you must provide the name of the creator and attribution parties, a copyright notice, a license notice, a disclaimer notice, and a link to the material. CC licenses prior to Version 4.0 also require you to provide the title of the material if supplied, and may have other slight differences.

Personality Rights

There is one more thing. Personality Rights. That means if people appear in one of our free pictures you want to use, mind that you are not allowed to use the picture in a way to endorse a product or make the people look bad. For example if you use a creative commons photo of a pretty girl in an article about the red light district, you are violating her personality rights, because you indicate that she is working in a field she is not. Or if you use the picture of a guy in an article about a bank robbery, you indicate that he is involved in the crime, which violates his personality rights.

So please, if you use our free travel photos and people appear in them, make sure to use them in a positive or neutral context.

I guess that's it. Feel free to mention foxtravels.net as a free source for travel bloggers on social media *wink wink, nudge nudge* and have fun travelling yourself!

Cheers,
Fox
