How To Source A Pixabay Image In Your Post



Hey everyone!!!! Gotta format tip for you!!!!!!



Professor Chick can be found HERE.



So you have put a photo in your post.

# You MUST source where you got it!

You also MUST be sure you are allowed to use it.

# Otherwise it is considered PLAGIARISM!!

So how do you source these Pixabay images?????

# Let me show you how to do this!





We will use this photo from Pixabay.

(I will not be sourcing the one photo immediately below photo for education reasons.)

1. After you have put the photo in,

# go directly below it and use this format:

2. Look at the Pixaby page and you will see what

# information you need to put into the format code.

You will take the circled information

(Just highlight the words "Image by Couleur from Pixabay")

and put where the "HERE" is in the above formatting like this:

3. Then you will add your link.

You will put the link from the address bar

# into the formatting code like this:

Your formatting code for the image and

# sourcing should then look like this:

Finally, your end result should look like this:

That's really how easy it is to source your photos!!!!!

Even though @sgt-dan is pretty much the Bastard of the Blochchain (BOTB), I do my best to support those things that are great and actually promote what is good and positive about our community. Good for all of you and give me hell when necessary.

Awesome! As a photographer and visual artist, this is important to me. Thanks for your great post. (And feel free to point people to my recent plagiarism article as well.)

Can't remember, for sure. Probably - but that may have been before the switcheroo that happened.

I will look.So glad you are with us in the Terminal.

Great tutorial. I simply say "Image from Pixabay" and link to the page. But your way gets the photographer's name front and center. Nothing wrong with that.

16.09.2019 00:05

Totally agree. Pixabay puts a thing to copy after you have downloaded it. Figured that would give them a little more exposure.

That looks much nicer than actually putting the link at the bottom. A great tip just in case one day I would use pixabay. Cheers!

I really like the look of having a caption or source comment under the photo. It looks a bit more "professional" and put together in my opinion. Thanks so much for reading the post.
