Image Use on the Web - Guidelines for F&M Web Sites

When choosing images to use on your institutional Web pages, please be mindful not to infringe on copyright.

In general, follow the same guidelines you would use when submitting images for a print publication. Be sure to have permission from the creator or owner of an image.

In general, it is OK to use:

  • images that you created. In the case of photographs, make sure you have permission from any identifiable subjects in the image.
  • images provided by College Communications.
  • images in the public domain.
  • images for which you purchase usage rights, such as stock photography.
