I remembering reading somewhere that if we use someone else's images in our hubs that we have to include where we got them from... we have to include the source. If I include photos in my hubs that are my own do I have to put my name in the Source field cause I haven't done that for any of the images?
If you do not put a source in the source field, you imply that you have the rights to that image (and typically that you created it). I don't typically credit myself when using my own photos in Hubs.
That said, many Hubbers do, so it's up to you!
Ok. Thanks Simone. Just making sure I am not violating anything by not putting my name in the Source field of images. Don't want any issue with Hub.
I always put "own" in the source so it is clear. I don't put my name, because I don't want to publish it on hubpages.
When I use my own photo in a Hub, I put "me" as the source. It's worked fine so far.

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative...

Does HP need to see the link in order to know that the picture was legally obtained?They insist on it in boot camp, but what about afterwards?I know Pixabay and some other free-image sites don't require attribution. I...
