Attribution Strategy

My goal is to provide readers with pleasant opportunity to learn about data science, data-related careers, and other professional or personal topics. In providing that visually and aesthetically pleasing experience I sometimes use a variety of images. I aim to provide attribution and credit. The information below provides additional information related to the images I use online.

Attribution Keywords

“Via Design Pickle” — The Design Pickle service provides visual design services on a monthly subscription basis. The artists at Design Pickle provide subscribers with images, illustrations, graphics, and other related productions. Design Pickle subscribers own the productions. Design Pickle also provides access to and use of stock royalty free stock photography.

“Photo by… on Unsplash” — According to its website, Unsplash provides “over 2 million free high-resolution images brought to you by the world’s most generous community of photographers.” Anyone can download and use Unsplash images for free. The images can be for commercial and non-commercial purposes. And no permission is necessary. Unsplash encourages, but does not require attribution.

“Author’s Photo” or “Author’s Illustration”— I sometimes take and use my own photograph or illustration.

“Author’s Screen Capture” — This designation indicates the image or illustration is the result of code or resulting output that I created with screen capture software.
