    How do you choose photo's for your website? Google/Bing search or some other source?

    If a photo does not have a watermark, is it safe to assume it is public domain?

    No. That is not a good indicator.

    I highly recommend that you do not take photos from search or other sites. The fines you can get from Getty are astronomical.

    Read these articles that we have created based upon our real world experience in building thousands of agency websites.

    Avoid Fines and Understand Image Usage Rights and Licensing

    I can tell you they usually start at over $1000 for each incorrectly licensed image.

    I stand outside high schools with a telephoto lens.

    How do you do it?

    Because you have no sense of humor and have your head stuck up your XXX.
