    After reading all the useful information on this forum on how to make your own postcards in vista print I decided to make my own. I will send them to all my guests with a little reminder in the back to book their travel soon. The problem is that now I need a nice photo of the Riviera Maya for my project. I tried looking online but the pictures I found were too small and would not work.

    Does anyone have a nice beach photograph of Riviera Maya?

    Thank you so much!!!!

        Do you have specifics of which beach... or just any Riviera Maya beach?

              Flickr is a great resource. If you choose the advanced search option, you can look for photos that are licensed Creative Commons - that usually means that you can use them if you attribute it to the user and don't use it commercially (i.e. resell it.) You can find pics like this Playa en Xelha on Flickr - Photo Sharing! or some cool hdr beach photos like these: Flickr: Search

                Thanks!

                So, what exactly does it mean by attribute the user? Would I have to put a link to the picture on the postcard or just the name of the person who submitted it.

                They have great photos there!
