Can I link back to a retail site from a photo of a product I'm writing about? Amazon doesn't have the product.

Hard to say, Brenda. You'd have to check with that site what they say about the copyrights on their images. Or send them a request.

In real life, probably no one would sue you over advertising their product and using their image(s) for that. But 100% legal it ain't, unless you have their explicit permission.

As we say in the kitchen: When in doubt, throw it out!  Smile

Wizzley may lock your article for unauthorized use of copyrighted images, Brenda. Be careful.  Smile

It's authorized. They even give you the link. Another question, do photos only show up when the article is posted?

Then we won't have a problem with it.  Smile
