As you probably know, when posting graphics to a site, or blog, we need to follow copyright laws. You can search for graphics that are free to use using Google’s advanced image search, in most if not all cases you’ll still need to attribute the graphic. Finding an image with a copyright that allows use can be time-consuming though.
If you have a Google account you can use a site called Wylio. Here you can search for an image, configure the size and positioning, and then copy some code which embeds the image in your post along with the proper citation. It makes it very easy to do the right thing.
The site does specify that:
* It’s best to add this code to your article’s source after you’ve finished writing and formatting the article.
* To prevent your blogging platform’s “WYSIWYG” editor from breaking the code, don’t change the image positioning from within your blogging platform.
To embed the code, once you’ve finished writing your post, click the HTML tab at the top of the post box. Paste the embed code that you’ve gotten from Wylio (it’ll be fairly long) where you want the image to be. In this post I’ve put the graphic at the beginning of my post and specified the size and that it be aligned left. The code calls the image to be displayed from its location at Wylio and adds the citation underneath. The screenshot below shows my post in HTML view with the cursor at the beginning of the post, ready for the embed code to be pasted.
