Using Other Artists' Images on your Blog

Alyson Stanfield's Art Biz Coach Blog gives you another golden article for anyone who promotes other artist's work (like me!) It is really hard to know where the line is between copyright infringement and promoting another artist's work by featuring in your blog, newsletter or website. Here is a link to the article:

Using other artists’ images on your blog

Posted using ShareThis

The way I usually do it depends on my relationship to the person. If I think that the person will be receptive, I write up the blog post with the low resolution pictures (taken from their website or blog), and then email the person with a link to the blog post. I let them know that I can change or delete anything that they want. If I don't really know the person well or think that they may object, I will email for permission first. I love how the article tells you to make sure you credit yourself, also. I sometimes forget that others who come across my images may not have know they come from this blog.

Your turn:
Check out the article, then come back here and let me know how you do it! Do you feature other artists on your blog or do you think it is too tricky to do? I am looking for more artists to feature, too! Are you interested? Let me know via email or in the comments here.

Happy Art-Making! ~ Jaime Lyerly

    Hey there Jaime, I was hoping to meet you on Saturday. I did meet Jen at the 8teen center.
    She is the sister of my dear friend Rick, I am very good friends with Barb, her sister in law.
    so perhaps another time we can meet.

  2. Hi Brittany,

    Jen told me that just missed you when I showed up at the Art Show. I hope we can meet another time.



Have something to say? You rock! I am all ears....
