Did I use these images correctly?

    I am still fairly new to HubPages and wrote a hub for the weekly inspiration today, although I have no idea if I used the images correctly and legally.

    Could you check and let me know whether I sourced them correct.

    Yes the attribution and use of creative commons images looks fine.

    You do have a big white space under one text block - if you go into the capsule, you may have "entered" a lot, so just delete the spaces.

    Also, you may want to add more images between the first two. It's a lot of text with no other visual interest.

      I did think that there was too much text but I couldn't find the place to add an image, I did add a poll but I don't think it is doing the job that well

        If each paragraph is in its own text capsule you can swing them in lots of spots.

          Okay, I have added another image and sorted out the extra space issue. Thanks for your help

    Hi Jake,
    Just to let you know your source URL is linking back to the picture size page of the photo you are using rather than the actual picture page. This could be important if HubPages, or say a potential writing client checking your work, want to check if the picture licence is OK.
    It's just a small point, and I don't want to appear picky, but we would get pulled up for this on the Apprenticeship Program.
    Also you need to give the full licence detail. (CC-BY-2.0). Again it's a small thing as the whole source URL thing is optional.
    Horatio.

      So what page do I link to, the previous one. When I was at the learning centre and I looked at their examples all of the flickr ones were on the same page as I am. Also the learning centre had one CC-BY and one CC-BY-2.0, how do I know which one to use?

      I'm trying to learn as much as I can so you can't be too picky. I have applied for the AP but am awaiting a response, I really hope I get in. I want to learn all of this stuff

    The source links now seem OK. They link to the correct page, perhaps I was not looking properly before Jake, sorry.
    To find the correct licence the owner is using, just go to the Flickr photo page and click on the highlighted link where it says "Some rights reserved". This will take you to the licence attribution page. Just use the licence type given in the brackets, CC BY 2.0, CC-BY-SA-2.5, or whatever it says.
    Also, be wary of CC pictures that also say "Request to licence *******'s photos via Getty Images". Although CC licences are granted in perpetuity Flickr and Getty are, rather pathetically, back tracking on that and trying to get money for them. A few years back Flickr and Getty started a photo scheme to help photographers earn a few pennies. It was by invitation only. Getty apparently had 30 professional “art” directors trawling through Flickr's 3 billion photos searching for the next David Bailey.
    Three years on and all the photographer has to do is click a link and all his pictures are eligible for Getty licencing. But it’s all or nothing, you can’t licence individual photos. This has lead to a situation where some pictures are CC but also seem to need licencing from Getty.
    However as I say, the thing is that once a picture has been made available under a Creative Commons Licence that licence is not revocable as it is granted in perpetuity for the lifetime of the work.
    So it’s all a bit sneaky. They can’t force you to pay but they would like your money thank you very much.
    I'm actually disgusted that Flickr would try this on, especially under the banner of Creative commons, so I stay clear rather than have to deal with some quasi judicial heavy handed threat to my bank balance that they may try to enforce.
    Getty have a reputation;

      Oh no, don't apologise. You did see correctly earlier... After your last thread I went and changed the URL links immediately.

      I also believe I have fixed the licensing errors. They were all "CC BY 2.0" does that sound right?

      What is actually the difference between license types? Hopefully I will learn that in the AP... If I get in of course

        Ablosutely no idea Jake. If it's a CC I just check I can use it commercially and then go for it. By the way, don't be put off if you find the pictures are "All Rights Reserved". You can always email and ask to use them. I have done that twice and had a successful result each time, once with an individual and once with amazon Inc. No harm in asking.
        Thanks for the follow by the way. I'll check your stuff out when I get a mo.
