I notice people that have featured hubs up having used the pictures showing movies. They are not their pictures unless they somehow have them from the movie. They are not in public domain that I know of if they are recent movies. I try and look and see if I can use the picture. How is it okay that they use them? Is there somewhere else that they get them from? I know some other sites list them as free pictures but I think they are not really free to use.
some may use them without permission. I wouldn't recommend that.
You can try photobucket. Or search for free pictures on bing or google
Movie companies release many photos for "publicity use", so I use certain things, like movie posters, in contexts where I'm promoting the film (or try to). That's the intent of the photo. However, misuse of a movie publicity still, can infringe on copyright. There's no "fair use" on screen shot.
I tend to lean toward movie posters for certain things because the intent of using a film poster is, by definition, a promotion of the film. If you have a business called "Jaws" and you're using a Jaws poster, then that's a violation of copyright.

Or do you really use your own? Some of the images I saw on some of the hubs looked like they were taken off the search engines. Am not very familiar with the policies, and it says that post only images that you have a...
