| You are free to use ANY gif that you like from ANY album if that gif was originally downloaded from a public gif site on the Internet. All gifs in the albums at Freedom are pretty much public domain gifs. Some gifs have been made by members who have a psp program. Those are usually the gifs that have to do with Freedom, but then again, those are also considered public domain. Just be very careful of the file size you use which should be no larger than 15-20 K. |
We do ask that you respect each other's privacy on personal photos that are in the albums and not use them in any way. Those would be real life pictures of members and their families and those are more than likely jpegs instead of gifs. I have noticed when looking at albums, that some of those jpeg files are immense and are not to be used on the board. They may only be viewed in albums which we are all free to browse. If a Freedom member does not want anyone peeking into his or her albums, then those albums and pictures within should not be stored on Freedom's site.
Also make sure that any gif in any album and/or used on the board are 100% G-Rated and safe for anyone to view at any time. If we find any that are not, both album and membership of that person will be deleted.
So enjoy the gifs and clipart. Use them if you want, but please keep an eye on the file size. And above all, don't let the gifs frustrate you. They are only used to punctuate a post or add a bit of humor. If a gif file needs to be made smaller so it can be used, go to gifworks.com and you can do just that. Whatever you do, the most important thing to learn at Freedom is why it is so important to never take another puff.
