What is an Online Image?

Online images refer to visual content or pictures that are accessible on the internet. These images are hosted on websites, servers, or online platforms, and they can be viewed, shared, and downloaded using web browsers or image viewing software. Online images can take various forms, including photographs, illustrations, charts, graphs, diagrams, artwork, memes, and more. Online images serve a wide range of purposes, from conveying information and illustrating concepts to entertaining, expressing creativity, and communicating ideas. They are an integral part of the digital landscape and are commonly found on websites, social media platforms, blogs, online articles, and various online documents. Users can interact with online images in different ways, such as liking, sharing, commenting on, and embedding them into their own content. Proper attribution and citation are often necessary when using online images in academic, professional, or public contexts to respect copyright and intellectual property rights.
