You need to contact the webmaster of the website that contains the images.

There are several ways to contact the webmaster of a site:

  • Find a 'Contact us' link or an email address for the webmaster on the site itself. This information is often easiest to find from the site's homepage.
  • Look up a site's webmaster information using a special search called a 'Whois' ("who is?") search. You can perform a Whois search using Google: just search for [ whois ]. The result is sometimes a little messy, but you'll probably be able to find an email address.
  • If you're unable to reach the webmaster, try contacting the site's hosting company, also usually listed in the Whois result.
