I see a photo of acidanthera I would like to use in a magazine article I am writing. Is it possible to get that permission?

Send a private message to the photo owner and ask them directly. I've never heard of this plant before, it looks really nice.

Sadly, they are not hardy Rydeboy - and last year's lot were hopeless in my garden - no flowers, all leaves! I have to decide whether to try again this year. They grow from corms - they are now known as 'Gladiolus callianthus'. (Don't ask me why, though!)

I'd love my pics to be published. I did have some published in Motorcycle News back in the 1980's, they were pics of motorbikes, not flowers! LOL! As long as I'd get a copy of the mag to show off to folk, it would be lovely to be 'famous'!

Aah yes I know the ones, we have them at work. I thought they looked familiar. I didn't get any flowers on my Nerines last year either, I think they need more sun.

I'd also love for my pictures to be published; I had a few offers on Flickr but missed all the deadlines because of an email error. Will have to keep taking more!

You have to obtain the permission of the photographer. This is normally freely given, I am over the moon when someone asks to use a picture of mine and have not refused it yet.
If you are using the picture in a magazine article then the magazine publishers should be asking you for signed confirmation that the pictures are your own or that you have permission to use them.
