When somebody gives you something it feels good when they say thank you.

When we come up with an idea, or make or create something new, we appreciate it when others give us credit for what we have done. It makes us feel good and appreciated, especially when what we have done has takes us a lot of work, time or energy to create.

When we use a PHOTO, INFORMATION, A VIDEO, or any other sources created by someone else in the work and projects we create it is essential that we give credit to the people whose work we were inspired by or used in our projects.
