So your assignment requires images?

Did you know that you need to make sure you have permission to use the picture, as well as write a citation or reference for it?

It's all about integrity!

What can happen if you don't:

Do the Right Thing

  1. If using Google search, make sure you go to "advanced search" or "search tools" and identify which level of usage rights you need. Here's a helpful article on how to Find Great Reusable Content with This Easy Advanced Search Technique.
  2. And/or use the Creative Commons website to find images that are free to use and share.
  3. Either way, use Citation Maker to create a citation (MLA) or reference (APA) for each image you use.

Cultural Appropriation


Jim Jarmusch's Quotable Quote

What's the most important word in this quote?

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."
