Creating, sourcing and curating original images has become a crucial investment for brands, as the demands of digital and social media require a constant supply of on-brand, authentic images. High quality images result in higher click through rates on posts, better engagement, and stronger positive brand sentiment.

There’s also strong temptation for busy marketers and community managers to repurpose images off the web, social media and Google searches. But this can leave your company open to serious legal risk, something Duane Reade learned the hard way after they tweeted a photo of actress Katherine Heigl exiting one of their stores, without proper image rights.

So how can you protect your brand, obtain legal rights to images, and source high-quality visuals that are on-brand and authentic without headache and hassle?
