    Can/May I post a picture of something if I took the picture?

    For example, if I have a pattern - and I took a picture of it - can i post that picture?

    of a book?

    From my experience I would have to say no you cannot.

    taking a picture of a copyright item is the same as copying it and then publishing it. it cannot be posted here.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    If I wanted to sell a book or a pattern, how would I display it? And I was unable to find a link to it -

    Only the cover would be photographed or scanned.

    if you had been clearer about your intentions, you would have gotten a better answer. yes, if you are offering something for sale here, you may take a picture of the parts that would be clearly visible in a store setting and post them here.

    I have posted pictures of book covers/ pattern cover pictures to indicate where I got my inspiration from so others could search for it with no problem because there are no instructions included in the picture. The one time I did have a bit of instruction in a photo it was removed and I understand why.
