Photos in the Ward History

#1

Post by richdavid »

I'm starting as a Ward Historian, and I'm curious about making the annual history with images. We've got 'permission-to-use-photographs' which is good for all photos. but I was wondering if I have a few photos that I haven't received the written permission, do I have to through them out? Some photos were used in a Relief Society newsletter. I was going to use them in the Ward History. I am trying to find out who took them. But if I can't, do I have to throw them out?

If you do not have the written permission of the photograph creator and owner then it cannot be used in the history. The permission is needed to avoid potential copyrights violations. See the Terms, Conditions, and Owner’s Agreement in the Permission to Use Photographs form.
