Lesson 2.6

Image Scraping


Images come in many shapes and sizes. Every time you take a picture with your phone, the camera saves it as an image with a very specific size in a very specific way in a very specific place. That’s because images take up space. Depending on the kind of image, the size of the image, and location of that image, the way it looks might be very different. Your phone gathers all these files into thumbnails which are basically just little versions of the bigger photos. Kind of like Google Images and Bing Images and Yahoo Images.

Now that we know about copyright, the question is how we deal with all these available images on the web. Google and Bing and Yahoo make them seem so easy to grab. That’s a blessing and a curse. Grabbing images, or “image scraping,” is too easy. But even Google has started to change its rules about images. During this lesson, you’ll learn more about images on the web and how you can put them on a web page.
