A creator automatically gets image copyrights as soon as it is created, snapped or drawn. It is very important to know what permissions a creator has given for image usage, else it can get you in legal troubles. To be on the safer side, the best option to use images for social media marketing are attribution-only and CC 1.0 Universal (CC 1.0) public domain licenses. There are free stock photography websites like Gratisography and Jay Mantri available from where you can get pictures to use for various purposes. You can also use Flickr for getting images by selecting options like “commercial use allowed” or no known copyrights restrictions”. This blog explains how to use images for marketing purposes with the correct licenses.
