Using Flickr for Photos and Images and to Generate Traffic to Your Hub

Pictures add to the friendliness of your article. They can add a nice warm fuzzy feeling.

I like to use pictures when writing my hubs. In fact, I have a couple hubs, such as Beautiful Nudibranchs: Splendid Sea Slugs, What do you have to say about the “Signs of the Times”? and 53 Macrophotography / Microphotography Images of Insects Plus Video plus many other macrophotography/microphotography hubs, where I collected all the pictures and then wrote the hub. Each of these hubs contains over 40 images that were gathered from the flickr site. Note: Gathering that many pictures and going through this process for each of them does take time, but I think it is worth it!

Here is the process that I use to find the pictures and to annotate them properly to give credit where credit is due. First off, I had a really hard time figuring out how to get into flickr to find the pictures. It was easy to find the site and to download photos onto their site, but searching for photos was a whole different ball game.

When I finally figured it out, I bookmarked it so I would never have to play flickr hide and seek again. You can click here for the link, and then save it under your own favorites and avoid the headache altogether. You’ll want to do this in a new window because you will want to have a window with your Hub open in, and a window with flickr called up.

You will be able to read on the Licensing Agreement page in flickr that you are able to use this image for commercial purposes (to make money).

Make Sure You Select for Commercial Use

After you arrive on the page in flickr, type in the term you want to “Search for” in the appropriate box. I usually leave the selection at "all these words", however I may occasionally indicate that there is a term I don’t want to search for. For instance, if I wanted to search for “cats” but I did not want to search for “tabby” cats, I would type in “cats –tabby”, leaving off the quote symbols.

I scroll down the page to “Search by media type” and select “Only Photos”.

Scrolling further down the page, on Creative Commons, I select “Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content” and “Find content to use commercially”. Then I click the “search” button. After this, your computer will bring back images from the flickr Creative Commons that you are able to use commercially. You have to be able to use them commercially if you intend to use Adsense, Amazon, or ebay to earn money from clicks on the page.

When you find a picture you want to use, left click on that picture and it will be brought up on your computer screen. Look at the picture, making sure it is what you want, and making sure it has no watermarks on it. Next right click on the picture, and then left click the size you want to use. I usually use “Medium 640”. You will be brought to another screen with the same image.

Then on the screen towards the top (above the picture) where it says “Download Download the Medium 640 size of this photo”, move your mouse to highlight the text and then right click this blue text “Download the Medium 640 size of this photo”. Left click “Copy Shortcut” on internet explorer, or "Copy Link Location" on firefox..

Now go to your photo capsule on HubPages, open it for edit by left clicking the "Edit" button. On the left side of the Photo capsule where you are given the option to select “Upload, Import, or My Photos”, left click on “Import”, left click on the first “URL” box, then type in “Crtl-V” by pressing the “Ctrl” key and the “V” key simultaneously (Ctrl-V is a short cut for: Right click and then left click on paste). This enters (or pastes) the information that you saved from flickr into your data entry box. Then on the bottom left of your form, left click on the blue “IMPORT” box.

This will upload your picture which will cause it to appear on the right area of your photo capsule. The capsule will now have 3 data entry boxes to the right of your photo. We will start with the first box data entry box “Source URL” Left click that box.

You can see, that pictures do add to your article. They can really help explain something for you, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

Move back to your flickr window, and left click the back arrow on the top left of your screen. Now left click the web address (URL) next to the back arrow and it should highlight the full address. You should only click once. What you have selected will look something like this:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/aigle_dore/5086326845/

It will begin with "http://" and usually end with a number followed by another back slash.

Move back to your HubPages photo capsule and left click the “Source URL” data entry box, and the type in “Ctrl-V” (Ctrl-V is a short cut for: Right click and then left click on paste). This will fill in (paste) the correct information into this box for you.

Now we will begin entering the information in the top box, “Name of Source”. Left click that data entry box. Move back to your flickr window. Close to the upper right of this window you will see text that says, “by Photographer'sName”. Left click on the “Photographer'sName” and you will be taken to another screen. At the top of the screen, highlight the text, indicating the photographer’s name, by left clicking and dragging your cursor across the photographer’s name such as “♀Μøỳαл_Bгεлл♂” and then releasing your cursor. As you can see, this photographer has some interesting characters in his/her name. By highlighting the text, I will be able to duplicate it exactly and I don’t have to worry about any typos.

After the text you want is selected, enter a “Ctrl-C” (Ctrl-C is the same as right clicking on the text you have highlighted and then left clicking on "copy") to copy it. Move back to your HubPages text capsule. Left click the “Name of Source” data entry box, and then type in “Ctrl-V” (Ctrl-V is a short cut for: Right click and then left click on paste) to paste the author’s name into the box. Type in a comma followed by a space and move back to your flickr window. Left click the back arrow on the top left of your screen. Returning to your previous flickr screen, scroll down until you can see the word “License” on the right side of your screen. Left click on the text under this which will say something like, “Some rights reserved”.

This will take you to the licensing agreement for this photo. At the top of your screen, you will see the words “Creative Commons” and under that something along these lines, “Attribution-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic (CC BY-ND 2.0)” Next you want to highlight the text, “CC BY-ND 2.0” by clicking and dragging the cursor over the text and then release. Type in “Ctrl-C” (Ctrl-C is the same as right clicking on the text you have highlighted and then left clicking on "copy") to copy.

Move back to your HubPages photo capsule window, click again on the “Name of Source” data entry box behind the PhotographersName and the comma and space space you had previously entered, and then type “Ctrl-V” (Ctrl-V is a short cut for: Right click and then left click on paste) to paste. Then type in a comma and another space followed by the words “via flickr”. The total information in your box will now look something like this “ "♀Μøỳαл_Bгεлл♂_BACK_FROM_PRAGUE, CC BY-ND 2.0, via flickr”.

Now you can move down to the third box, the Caption data entry box. Left click in the box and enter the caption that you would like to appear underneath your picture in your hub, such as “An Orange and White Cat Walking”. It you are not entering a complete sentence with punctuation, you might want to consider capitalizing the words as I have done in this example.

Then left click the save button at the top right of your photo capsule. And the picture with the correct annotation and caption is placed in your hub. You will have a picture with the correct source entered and a caption much like you do in the example pictured above.

I repeat the above process for each picture that is placed in my article. It appears to be time consuming and tedious, but it isn’t. It gets easier and easier. And because of all the cutting and pasting I do between the two windows, I don’t have to worry about typos.

After the hub is published, I then go through my hub. I start at the top with the first picture and work my way down.

It's a win for everybody!

Notifying Photographer of Use of their Photo

Under the picture in the above example, it says “An Orange and White Cat Walking; Source: ♀Μøỳαл_Bгεлл♂_BACK_FROM_PRAGUE, CC BY-ND 2.0, via flickr”.

Go to the top of your screen and select the web address of your hub and left click on the web address once. This wilI highlight your web address which begins with http://. Type in Ctrl-C (Ctrl-C is the same as right clicking on the text you have highlighted and then left clicking on "copy") to copy that text.

Then move to your first picture and left click on the blue text that is the "Source" of your image that appears under your picture. This will take you to the flickr window from which you had previously downloaded your image. Under the picture you will generally have a comment box. Most have it, a few don’t. Left click on the comment box. Then type in something along these lines, “I used this photo in an article I wrote:” Hit the return to move to the next line. Type in Ctrl-V (Ctrl-V is a short cut for: Right click and then left click on paste) to paste the link back to your hub under the first line. Hit another return and type in something along the lines of, “Thanks for the use of a really great picture.” Then left click on the LEAVE COMMENT box below that.

In the next few days, if you check your stats, you will probably see some visitors from flickr. I generally do. Occasionally I get emails from photographers, and I’ve even had them leave comments on the hub. This is an easy way to generate traffic to your site, and to build good will with the flickr community, and create backlinks for yourself – a win-win-win.

My gosh this was good!

Thank you for the easy way to "properly" use other people's photos.

I usually do one more thing when searching on Flickr. Not only do I select Creative Commons and "find content to use commercially", I also select "find content to modify, adapt or build upon." I find sometimes I want to cut out some of the background or modify the photo some other way.

THNX Homesteadbound!

Maralexa - Thank you for stoping by and commenting. And that was a good suggestion if you do ever intend to modify any of the photos.

INFJay - It is a good idea to print it out, especially for the first few times you want to use it. You can also bookmark it for reference. I have many hubs bookmarked that I intend to read and/or use in the future.

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

bethperry - that just goes to prove that something I have been doing works! I am always careful of the first picture that I put into a hub since that will be the one that is displayed with the hub in the feeds. I also want to make sure that it is catchy even as a small picture. And look - it works - it got your attention. Thanks for stopping by.

homesteadbound, you are amazing. Thanks for the excellent, excellent Hub! You've found a benefit of proper image use and citation that I had no even thought of!


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

Simone - I was just trying to create a hub that would be helpful to so many people who seemed to be struggling. But it is such an excellent way to create backlinks for yourself. That is why I try to use flickr as often as I can. After writing the hub, just click on the links under the picture and create my own backlinks in their comments.

Thanks for stopping by!

homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

molometer - That is said and I think it is so true. Sometimes when I open a hub that doesn't have any pictures, I don't feel a desire to read it at all. It's just a bunch of cold text staring back at me.

You've changed since the last time I saw you. You have a little more color in your face. LOL

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for commenting!


HikeGuy profile image

HikeGuy 5 years ago from Northern California Coast

Excellent points. I always thank the photographer and leave my URL. They don't have to allow free use of the work under CC, so it's a gift. For one series, all the photos are from the same photographer. I only promote my articles where it's relevant, so participating on Flickr has been one comfortable way to share them. Glad you created this hub.

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

J.S.Matthew - thank you so much for your warm and kind words. It means so much for me to hear them from you, the first person to welcome me to hubpages and to the wonderful world of writing almost 3 months ago. It seems almost like a lifetime ago!

Thanks for stopping by!


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

HikeGuy - You are right, it is a gift. I would not have pictures that help to make my words more interesting, nor the pictures to help illustrate my points if those pictures were not available. And yes, if we promote our work in ways that are not relevant, then our links could be considered spam. thank you for the points you have brought up.

And thanks for stopping by!

Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 5 years ago from Arkansas, USA

Backlinks? How does that work, homestead? By letting the photographer know you used it? Leaving your link to your hub? I'm still not clear on backlinks, but that's what I'm thinking how that would work.


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

If you use flickr, most photographers allow you to leave a comment. So after I publish the hub, I click on the links that I have created under the picture and then leave a comment with my URL - a backlink easily created - and thank them for making the picture available for use.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 5 years ago from Arkansas, USA

Okay, I guess I have done that a few times, then. I'm still learning all the lingo, like what a "backlink" means, exactly! Thanks for the clarification.


LindaSmith1 profile image

LindaSmith1 5 years ago from USA

Good idea. I have stayed away from Flickr for some reason, maybe pics have copyrights to them or there is a fee, I forgot. But I will go back to see why.


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

I could be mistaken, but I believe that if a site points back to your site, that is considered a backlink. This is just an easy way to make this happen.


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

LindaSmith1 - As long as you select “Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content” and “Find content to use commercially”, then you can use them free of charge.

The selection is immense, and is increasing all the time. Occasionally I cannot find what I want and have to go elsewhere. But most of the time I have been able to find what I want.

Thanks!


LindaSmith1 profile image

LindaSmith1 5 years ago from USA

I just went there, and one I selected fell uner the creative commons. Thanks. So many people just click, copy, save and use photos that are copyrighted, even vidoes for you tube. Frankly, I don't know why people post photos, etc if they don;t want others to use them, unless it is a site where you have to pay for the use of all photos etc that are on it. Oh well, that is the Cyber World today.


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

Glad I could help. Just make sure it is also for use commercially, or you cannot legally use adsense etc on the hub.

Thanks


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 5 years ago from Arkansas, USA

Does it have to say for commercial use? There are those on flick that say Creative Commons and are under the first category that say "Attribution License." I thought that was all that was needed...?


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

Victoria Lynn - I'm not sure if I can totally answer that. In the hub, https://hubpageshelp.com/media/Learning-Center-leg it states, "It is not okay to:

Use an "Attribution" image and not attribute the author. Many creative commons images come with an "Attribution" license, which means that you can use the image, but only if you credit the author. If you do not credit the author, you are not using the image legally. Crediting an author requires both a name and a URL, both of which can be entered into the photo capsule.

It is not okay to Use a "Non-Commercial" image if you have ads turned on for your Hub. If you are earning money from your Hub, it is commercial, and you can therefore not use images that have been designated for only non-commercial use."

I just went to the creative commons and picked a picture I might have wanted to use, and it specifically said not for commercial use under the licenses.

I assume as long as it did not specifically say "not for commercial use" that would be okay. But to find that out I had to look at the picture, decide if I wanted it or not, click on it and then check if I could use it.

If I see a picture I am interested in, I would like to be able to know that I can use it. So, if I only look at the ones that can be used commercially, I save myself time and frustration. I know that everything I am looking at I can use.

I hope this helps.

Good question. Thanks for stopping by!

thelyricwriter - good to see you again. I have been hiding out for a couple weeks, but found I missed all my friends here too much. I am glad you found the article useful. Thanks for visiting!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 5 years ago from Arkansas, USA

Thanks, homesteadbound. The ones I've looked at under the Attribution license, I always attribute, and I haven't seen anything that says not for commercial use under them. So, I'm hoping they're okay. I did just replace a picture that was iffy by going through all your steps in your hub. I opened up your hub and looked at it side by side with mine. Very useful. This was really a great, helpful hub. It makes us all be more careful with the pictures we use. Eventually, I'm hoping to use mostly my own photos, as I'm trying to take more pics and replace more hubs with them. :-)


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

Victoria Lynn - When you select a picture, on the left side down toward the bottom you will find the word' "License". Under this it tells you what the restrictions for use are. When you can't use them for commercial content, it has a symbol - a $ inside a circle, with a line diagonally through it (like a do not sign)It's like gray and can be difficult to see. But I just narrow down my choice immediately and then I don't have to worry about it.

Like I said - great question.

Thanks so much!

Voted up. Interesting hub. What do you think of using royalty free images from photobanks?


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

f - I have never heard of photobanks. I will have to check them out. Have you thought about writing for HubPages?


5 years ago

I meant, like a photo bank, such as wikimedia, with many public domain items.


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 5 years ago from Texas Author

f - flickr, as I use it - in the creative commons, is free. So if I am understanding you, that would make it a photobank. I have used Wikimedia. There are several sources that I know you can use, but flickr has many photos and it is easier to look in only one place.

rmcrayne 4 years ago from San Antonio Texas

hsb, I agree about Flickr. I too can usually find what I need through Flickr Creative Commons. I have however run into a few issues recently. Fairly often I get Getty-licensed images in my search results for commercial use. Obviously they are for commercial use, but not free. Also, I have older hubs with Flickr Creative Commons images, that subsequent to my selection and use of the images, they have signed with Getty. Just a few things you might want to warn readers about.

I posted photos on Flickr, but I have never felt comfortable using anyone else's photos. With me being active on both sites, it may be a way to see a traffic boost. If you want really great photos, check out my brother's page - Doug Wallick. My husband - dkroulik (Darrell) is just getting started and is pretty good also.
