All the images on the Digital Images page have either been created by SIGBI using royalty-free or purchased images, or we have obtained permission for their use. You can therefore use any of these images for your own publicity purposes, safe in the knowledge that you have permission to do so.
However, when obtaining images from the internet, do heed the following advice to ensure that you do not fall foul of any copyright laws.
Google is a search engine that helps you locate content such as images, photos and other content. Google search engine is not a collection of public domain or copyright-free works. As a general rule, you should assume that all images found through a Google search or that you otherwise locate online are protected by copyright unless you find out otherwise.
If you go ahead and use the image anyway this may lead to a dispute and you could be sued.
We’ve built up a bank of images on Flickr, so this is always a good place to start when looking for a particular photo. You can download any of these and some are grouped into albums, the Club Photo of the Month images are always inspiring.
A good selection of images from Soroptimist International.
Pixabay offers free, royalty free images. You can download and use these without worrying about copyright www.pixabay.com.
Photoshare offers thousands of international public health and development Images – free for non-profit and educational use. You have to request the use of an image and it can take a few hours to receive approval, you also have to include the photo credit on the actual image.
There are some free websites that provide images so long as the source is credited https://unsplash.com/license
Take your own
Get into a good habit of having nominated Members taking high resolution photographs at your own events. Please ensure everyone in the photo has signed a consent form. If needed you can use a simple photo editor like Microsoft Office Picture Manager – to ensure the photo has the most impact by removing clutter from backgrounds, red eyes and changing the brightness if necessary. You can then send your images in to email@example.com and we’ll add to Flickr. Please ensure you’re happy with images you send in being used in a variety of capacities.
When using photographs that you have taken yourself, remember to get the permission of those in the photograph to put it on your website or social media. Bear in mind the GDPR regulations and SIGBI’s safeguarding policies, which are both on the same webpage – https://sigbi.org/members/federation/policies-and-protocols/
