    Q: Jeannie Long jeannie.long{at}hotmail d o t fr Hello I would very much like to incorporate your photo ‘Lovers Embracing on the beach at sundown on Morro Strand State Beach 10 January 2010’ into a cover that I am preparing for a Kindle e-book. As this is my first attempt to publish (and may very well fail!) I am trying to follow the guidelines for using photos in the Creative Commons category. If I have understood correctly, I may use your image provided that I state on the copyright page, along with the book title, something like: Photo: Lovers Embracing on the beach at sundown on Morro Strand State Beach 10 January 2010’ by Michael ‘Mike’ L. Baird. Creative Commons Public License. Modified for cover design. Do I need to add anything else, eg copyright? or ‘all rights reserved’? I’d like to add something like ‘by kind permission’ but am worried that there may be a hidden legal meaning in there! Any help from you would be greatly appreciated. It’s a wonderful picture, just right for my romantic novel (as yet unpublished) which is set in Biarritz, France and will have another photograph (personal) in the lower half showing the ‘Grand Plage’ at Biarritz. The ‘modification’ by the way is just in terms of size to fit in the cover.
    Many thanks in advance.
    A: Jeannie, that's fine to use my photo from same as I might suggest the following as being a bit more accurate, but your line works too.
    I wish you the very best success in your publication, that is very exciting!
