Google Images part 2

In this previous Journal, I explained the procedure for using the advance search feature of Google images to determine what images may not be shared, modified or used commercially.

This blog is an example of what can happen when those who know better do not exercise “due diligence”

Not only did they end up paying what they regard as an outrageous amount to settle out of court, but are losing in the “internet court of public opinion” in their attempt to blame the victim for overreacting.

We write thousands of blogs every year for our clients and agency partners. Our editorial standards are obnoxiously high, and we do our best to write the best Web content our clients (and their competitors) have ever seen. Although we try to catch everything, occasionally a mistake sneaks by us. Recen

Google Images

Many people are under the false impression that any images that they find in Google images are in the public domain
The public domain is not a place. A work of authorship is in the “public domain” if it is no longer under copyright protection or if it failed to meet the requirements for copyright protection. Works in the public domain may be used freely without the permission of the former copyright owner.

The gear wheel in the upper right gives you access to the advance search feature where you filter the results for use terms

Filtering this query for images that you are free to share or use returns no images!

Pinterist NO PIN code

There are ways around this, but it should help on reducing the number of pins. You can confirm this by looking at view page source in your browser

Where is the dust at?

Dust on sensors is a “fact of life” with DSLR’s
First thing to understand is if you can see the dust spots in the optical viewfinder, it is not on the sensor.…
The sensor is behind the shutter.and can be seen only when the shutter is open

The spots that you are seeing when you look thru the viewfinder with the lens off are on the ground glass viewing screen and will not show up in photos. The ground glass view screen is above the mirror 5 is the bottom surface of the ground glass viewing screen and is easy to clean. Dust can also be trapped on the top surface and that is major requiring the body to be disassembled. :) It may bug the heck out of you, but it will not show up in the photographs. So most of us live with it.
