Hey guys I’ve managed to return. This week we’re talking about something pretty important, copyright and images! This is pretty important because as it turns out not all the images on the internet are free! Some of them are protected by a thing called copyright. This essentially makes sure the photo can’t be used by anyone without paying for the photo or asking for permission (if you do use those photos without paying or asking you can actually be sued!). Luckily there are some ways to still get images for your blogs and websites.
One of the ways it’s to create an image! Personally this is my favourite method for getting images, it’s pretty easy and super fun! My favourite app for this would be sketches pro. It’s a really great drawing app that has so many amazing tools for drawing. It has a boatload of pen and pencil options and you can make any colour you want using the colour mix option. Here’s a photo of a car I drew in sketches pro I used pens and the filler tool to give it the look it has and I’m really proud of it!
Our next task was to create a slideshow of copyright free photos we found on the internet. I made a slideshow of the amazing copyright free climbing photos that I found! The sites I used in particular would be pexels and unsplash. These were the sites that were in the range of my age because pixabay is 16+ and that means I can’t use it! Please enjoy some of the incredible photos that are incredibly free!
For our third task we had to write a poem. I chose to write a haiku. I’ve always really liked haikus and I’ve always thought it’s cool that the lines don’t have to rhyme. I also like the idea of a strict syllable pattern. Unfortunately my haiku is rather gloomy. I’ve not been enjoying the weather lately so I thought I would complain using a poem for a change, I hope you enjoy!
It’s too rainy here,
I wish it would snow instead,
When will winter end…
For our final task we had to create a little puzzle. I’ve chosen some copyright free images that add up to make my favourite activities. When you see the images you can add them up to see my three favourite things to do! (I got all of these images off of unsplash).
Well thanks for coming by my blog today guys, I’ve had quite a lot of fun getting to talk about copyright images and why they’re so important. I definitely hope you guys learned a little something and I guess I’ll see you next week!
Tak zatím ahoj!

I am a student blogging challenge commenter. I couldn’t figure out how to comment on your ‘about me’ page or your commenting rules page, so here I am!
I am sorry you don’t like blogging much. I like blogging because it gives you a bigger audience than just your teacher or occasionally your family. There are some really fun tasks on the blogging challenge that I hope you will like.
What is netball? We don’t have that in Alberta , Canada. Can you explain it to me?

I’m sorry you couldn’t comment on my about me page, that’s super weird. Maybe I didn’t set it up right, I’ll check it and see if it’s fixable. Also I do like blogging sometimes and the SBC is always fun, it’s just I have to write a blog post for every single project I do and that can get very hard and time consuming, so that sometimes make me not want to blog. To answer your question I have no idea what netball is! (Did I mention it in a post?). All I know about netball is that it’s an English sport similar to basketball (I think) that my dad played as a child (in England). I have one question for you, what’s a student blogging challenge commentator?
Well thanks for checking out my blog, I hoped you liked it!

Hello, my name is Kari and I am a college student in North Carolina. I enjoyed reading your blog post about copyright and how you can potentially get in trouble for copyright if you are not cautious of it. I really enjoyed how you put other options in this post about how to avoid copyright. I like that you included to look in your camera roll as well. This is a great idea that I didn’t think about. Great job on your post.

Hi Kari I’m holly!
I’m glad you enjoyed my blog post. Copyright is really important and from what I’ve heard getting a copyright strike really sucks. And checking in your camera roll is a great idea, you never know when you might find a perfect photo for whatever you need right in your own device! I have one last question, have you ever had any problems with copyright as an university student?
Thanks for checking out my blog!
