I am a photo editor with RiseUp Publications. We are working on an article on Enea Bossi and I've noticed that you have posted several images of him and the plane he invented. It would be wonderful to have the opportunity to publish one or two of your images to illustrate the article. You can contact me offline at email@example.com
- Certainly, the photos are licensed under cc-by-sa-2.5. The cc means Creative Commons, which is the name of the license. by means that you have to attribute the author -- in this case "Bossi family photos" would work for all but one of the images in this category. The one exception is this, where the author would be me, Andrew Bossi. The sa means share alike, that is the image must be licensed under cc-by-sa-2.5 in your work. So basically you'd caption or footnote each image with something like cc-by-sa-2.5, Bossi family photos. Just let me know if you have any additional questions. I actually have a lot more photos of him & his works; I've just been busy uploading other images such that I haven't quite had time to scan in the photos.
