Is there a way to filter CC Free licence images ?
So to list only images that dont ask for credit to author.

Filter away those marked with "FREE".

Hello Stagger Lee,
now it is possible to filter images by "Free" filter, so all "Free" images are found, it's not possible to filter images which do not require author crediting.
I'll add a corresponding wish to our wish list.

regards,
Aileen

Hi,

Our managers have indicated that all the images do require author crediting so such filter will be useless.

Who is the author of non-free images ? Hot to credit them ? And how to credit them if used as backgrounds or inside sliders ?

There are two types of images in BillionPhotos stock:

  • Free images. All of them require crediting the author. They all marked with "Free" badge:

free-images.png

  • Paid images. They are all owned by us. The purchased image does not require crediting the author.

Do you mean that you want to list only Paid images?

Thank you,
Olivia

Oh man, I speak chinese seems so. : ) Yes, your paid images with bought licence.

I dont mind credits to authors, but have already one million steps when developing an website, dont need this idiocy too. Problem is cannot afford much time to keep track who owns what. And most important, cannot download them on my HDD. As soon there are more than 3 you no longer know whom to give credit.
Rather not to use them.

Can credit for free images be given to BillionPhotos ? And link to your website. This would solve problems to keep track who owns credit.

Hi,

You can try to create two folders on your computer for the images: one for the free images that do require credits and one for the paid that can be used without mentioning the author.

Thanks Hella,

but I will pass for now. Tested yesterday and it is very difficult to find on Google author homepage, or link where image is placed originally, to put link in credit. They tend to spread own images everywhere, Flickr, personal websites, Google Plus, Facebook, etc....

Tried 2 images and found authors, websites, but could not find this image there.
Dont know how Themler search for images with CC licence. Could it be possible it list link to where it found image too ?

Ideal would be to have Author info and URL inside EXIF data in image. EXIF readers are free to download and use.

If it can help others, extension "Search by Image (by Google)" Chrome extension can find original URL od "FREE" images from ThemlerPhotos.
Big preview cannot be used because seems as it is hidden on Themler servers. Click on small thumb and use this option/chrome extension. Then you will see where image originated on web.

Hi,

ALL FREE images are from Flickr. Most probably it's enough to specify a link to author's profile on flickr.

Something like:

image by JohnSmith/CC BY

Again, it's related to free images (with FREE label).
All other images does not require crediting the author.

Thank you,
Olivia
