Image Writing Etiquette: You need to know...

As Cubits grows, so does our writing experience. Writing online involves legal responsibility. Here are some tips and a bit of advice to help you write the perfect article (and to keep you from stumbling after it's published).

Dear Sharon, nobody can teach you how to write as every person has their own way of portraying of what they wish to say! Just like an Artist has a way of seeing something entirely different to what I do.
I agree about photographs as I have seen some glaring things on cubits, which really should not be there! They are or have been used without permission and changed slightly or in some cases worse.
Sharon you use a powerful Mac and so do I, they show up a mile away to me! By all means use your own pictures and indeed make them look better using some sort of photo editor.
Just please do not us someone elses work. For it may look good on your laptop at home, but to another person it does not! Plus it is plagiarism, with pictures.
If as the case may be there is no possible way of getting something from an event that happened years ago, and you do find what you want. Simply find out if it is available to use and make sure you check and put a citation on your Article so people will know where it came from. Also as UK law is different from USA law make sure it does not interfere with any laws. For it is your responsibility to do that!
If you use a quote, put their name underneath it, unless it clearly states Anonymous.
Or indeed copy anything, from someone elses writing, as you should put where it came from.
Sharon another great Article.
Thank you,
+ Phoenix.

Thank you so much, Neil and Phoenix.
I enjoy your articles too, but sometimes I can't talk very much about things like 'bacon' so I don't always respond to them. I do read them, however.
