Public-domain photos of General Authorities

Postby sbradshaw » Mon May 04, 2015 3:39 pm

I'm developing a section of my web site that has to do with General Conference, and am looking for photos of church leaders (past and present). These types of photos:
https://www.lds.org/church/leaders?lang=eng

Does anyone know what kind of license is attached to these photos, or if the Church releases them anywhere licensed for use in third-party projects?

I know a general answer would be to contact the copyright office using the contact info under "Rights and Use Information" for LDS.org, but maybe there's something already available that I'm overlooking, that I could get started with right away. Any ideas?

I thought if it could be found anywhere, it would be in the newsroom. But the rights listed there say "by media personnel for use in traditional public news forums". So I think you're stuck with the Copyright office.

Thanks! Photos of past apostles aren't included, but it's a start.

I have the below Android app on my device that has pics of all the apostles. Perhaps you can determine where they got their pics. It was coded by an Android programming Class at BYUH.
