Now here is a my rule
the media files you use in your story have to be ones that are licensed or shared with permission to re-use
; this is the only way you can safely then share your new creation knowing it does not contain any copyrighted material plus it is just darn human courtesy to give credit where creation came from.
So just finding a picture via Google is not satisfactory
. For each media file you find, as you search, be sure to document the source by title and URL and find a person or organization to give credit.
