I’m totally clueless as to whether something is Royalty Free or not. I’ve predominantly used my own images for this reason, but there are several images I’d like to use that would save me a lot of time.
I usually will do a google search for something I’m looking for and once I find an image I’m looking I generally can’t tell if it is Royalty free or not. I know if it has a watermark on it, it obviously isn’t, but if it doesn’t does that mean it is free to use?
Is there a quick and easy way to tell who the image is owned by and how to contact them. I’ve come across several images that are used on multiple different storefronts (such as Amazon and eBay) that I’d like to use but don’t want to violate any laws.
If anyone has feedback, it’d be much appreciated.
