Using the Work of Others
Every image you use at the forum, just as any other artwork, has an artist and/or other source involved, whether an institution, book, website who owns or to whom or what the artwork rightfully belongs. We ask anyone using an image at the forum to make sure that explicit permission is given to use the artwork and that explicit credit is given when presenting it at the site.
The Artist and the Artwork
Include both the name of the artist and the name of the artwork in a way similar to the example below:
Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh
If another source, such an institution, book, website, is strongly associated or asked by the artist to accompany the work it should be included as well. Include the artist and artwork's names and the name of the other source along therewith. The artist's name or title of the work can be used as a link to the source as in the example A below or the source can be indicated seperately as the address/url in example B:
(Example A) Wood Anemone Flowers by Rosendahl
(Example B) Wood Anemone Flowers by Rosendahl
However, if the author of the work is unknown, but the secondary source (such as a website) indicates that the images are free to use and not copyright, then listing only the secondary source is acceptable:
Very common symbols, flag-images, avatars, and smilies can be used at the user's discretion without giving any credit or source. We expect the user to make sure these are free to use or that they get permission to use them if necessary. Examples:

Resizing an Image
Use [imgs width= height=][/imgs] to adjust the width and height of an image you have linked to:
[imgs width= 200 height=100]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fe/Flag_of_Egypt.svg/800px-Flag_of_Egypt.svg.png[/imgs]
[imgs width= 300 height=200]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fe/Flag_of_Egypt.svg/800px-Flag_of_Egypt.svg.png[/imgs]
[imgs width= 400 height=200]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fe/Flag_of_Egypt.svg/800px-Flag_of_Egypt.svg.png[/imgs]
Using an Image as a Link
To use an image as a link use [img][/img] inside [url][/url]. Example:
Sunset by Paolo Neo (Click on Image)
To create text that shows up when you hover over the image use the [imgalt][/imgalt]. The text you wish to include needs to be seperated by a comma:
[imgalt]http://www.public-domain-photos.com/free-stock-photos-4-big/landscapes/sky/clouds-2.jpg[b], Clouds by Jon Sullivan[/imgalt]
(Hover your mouse over image to see the text)
You can code an image to change into another when the mouse hovers over it by using [moimg=(first img url)](2nd image url)[/moimg]
