I’ve noticed on my blog statistics that I get the most traffic from images of my quilts on the major search engines. I know that people are downloading these, even if my art is copyrighted. It happens.
So how you do make sure you get credit for not just the image but for the art itself? Title your photograph with the name of the artwork and your name. The photo accompanying this blog is titled with both the name of the quilt and my name, so any sneaky downloads will reference back to me.
Thanks to Alyson of ArtBizBlog and Brian at ArtStudies for this tip.
