More wankery

I just assumed that all gallery websites would allow you to download images and then upload them to a website for non-commercial use. Not so! The National Gallery does. The Van Gogh Museum does. The Tate doesn’t and the National Portrait Gallery doesn’t. Something to do with who owns the rights. I’m sure there’s a very good technical explanation for this, but it seems like more wankery.

Maybe I’ll just go ahead and publish the images anyway and live like an outlaw.

(Many images from The Van Gogh Museum can be downloaded for non-profit publications, personal websites, blogs, and social media).
