Linking Instructions and using images and other information

Linking to Us

We are happy for you to link to our website or any page, this page explains what you can do and how to achieve it.

This website, and the main Photographers Resource website is designed to run as either single pages or as a part of a frame system, showing a banner, and contents in addition to the pages. The whole system includes a variety of indexes allowing information to be easily found, and this is available to your users however you link.

You can link to the website, and to sections of the website in these cases the full frame version is displayed, but you are also welcome to link to individual pages or to link our pages into your own frame sets.

You will find our individual pages have a button line at the top, so users can access our full system or break out of any frame arrangement you use if they wish. The quick links on the left go into the full system, then to the indexes. Some pages have a second line when they are a part of a section allowing movement within the section.

You can:-

  • Link to individual pages.

  • Link to sections or the main website.

  • Link to Doorways, these are unique entry points into this system for people with a particular interest.

  • Link to Picture Galleries.

You will find more information on options, other than individual pages, on the main Photographers Resource website just click on the linking instructions near the bottom of nearly every page.

Linking to individual pages

We will try not to move pages about, so any links to pages that you have remain good. We appreciate how difficult it is to keep the links on websites current.

You can link via a text link, your own link or from a graphic. With individual pages can we suggest you use the 'Featured in Photographers Resource' button shown at the bottom of many of our pages including this one.

To get a copy of the 'Featured in Photographers Resource' button, just right click on the button and use 'Save As' to save a copy to your computer. Its on most pages to make it easy for you to pick up when you want to make a link.

The web address of an individual page can be obtained from the hyperlink on the Text Linking: in the centre box where shown. There are a number of other ways to break out of our frames to get an individual page and see its direct web address.

  • If you have an up to date web browser, that opens new tabs, then you can hold down the control key (CTRL) while clicking on any link, and the page goes to a new tab instead of staying within the frame set as designed. Now its in a page of its own, it shows the web address of the page.

  • You can right click on the page, not the heading or contents, and then select create shortcut, this puts a link to the page on your desktop, allowing you to directly access the page but also gives the web address of it.

  • The 'Bookmark' button's 'mouse over' facility also has an email option, amongst others, that you can email yourself a link to the page.

If you can't manage the HTML or need other assistance to link, then please contact us and we will do our best to help you.

Using Doorways

Doorway pages are unique pages set up so as to be an alternative entry point into our system. Each is a full page (not a frame set) that is easy to link to and then allows the user to discover both what Photographers Resource is but also to link directly into the relevant section.

You can find Doorway links within the Topic Index, or on the home page of Photographers Resource.


You can link directly to any of our picture galleries, the best link to take is the link off of the Gallery Index in the Gallery Section of our main website, Photographers Resource.

Using information off our Website

We believe in the co-operative sharing of information, within legal copyright limits.

this symbol means you can use parts of the information, or the whole page on a non profit website, providing that you say where the information came from, i.e. link back to us, and you don't alter the information. This is limited to 10 pages per website without permission, to copy larger sections, so you can't copy our entire website out in total to your website. Generally its better to link to our pages, linking them to run in a frame within your site, rather than copy out sections, as we can and do update our pages, but of course would be unable to update any copies. There is NO limit on the number of pages you can link to or call from our site to appear within your own site, just on copying out pages.

You will find similar symbols by many photographs within our main website,  Photographers Resource, and they define the limitations on their use, if a hyperlinked photographers name is shown, clicking on that will go to the original copy and restrictions, if not often the symbol will have been linked to the source.

Non profit websites are those that are open to everyone without any fee or registration process, and where the main content is information not heavy advertising content.  It is also non profit if the site is published by a non profit organisation, even if it contains some sponsorship adverts.

You can find out more about Creative Commons, the system that is used to licence pages and photographs, by looking up Creative Commons in the index on our main website.

If we have used some information or a photograph and you don't like it

Under  Creative Commons we use information as well as making it available. As this website is published by a non profit organisation, and it does not profit from its publication in any way, this website is a non profit website. Advertising is not sold by us and no income goes to the publisher, this is an arrangement where we have hosting and services in exchange for allowing some advertisements to be included.  However if you have information published under a creative commons arrangement and you don't like us using it, then let us know and as soon as its practical we will remove it and replace it with alternative information. We do ask you a few questions to actually confirm you are the rightful owner of the information or photograph, rather than someone just trying to apply censorship of some form.

There is of course no copyright on data, so this applies to block content, photographs and illustrations only. You will need to prove who you are, that its your data and provide a way for us to verify this.

There is no copyright in raw data, ideas or individual words or sentences. But there is in layout, blocks of text and images. See our indexes in our main website for articles on 'copyright'.

In any other situation please just contact us and let us know your concerns, but consider first if you mind information or images being used. There is little point in you and us spending a vast amount of time looking into and working out who has what rights if there is no objection to its use.
