Rules of Reposting
If you are a person who sometims takes photos from other people’s accounts and repost them, it can be good to know some of the “basic invisible rules”. Most major pages that takes their own photos love when you repost them (as long as you give them correct credit).
Correct credit means that you in the description of the photo give credit to the person who took it, for example: “Photo by @—” or “All credit to @—“. If you don’t do this and the photographer sees that you have used their property (which it is), they could sue you. Although the suing part is very unusual, it is better to be safe than sorry. The larger accounts usually have no problem with you reposting their photo as long as you credit them since they gain more exposure and ultimately more followers.
The most common thing that happens when you post big pages´photos without giving them credit is that they ask you to simply give them credit – easy as that!
When it comes to smaller pages, some of they can be a little tricky. Most of them usually has no problem with you reposting their photos (As long as you give them credit).
Some of them however may not be okay with the fact that you just took their pic and uploaded it for your your audience to see without asking for permission. After all, it is their property that they own the full rights to and can boss over. That’s why our recommendation with smaller pages is that you always ask first before you use their photos.
