    I have spent hours looking for images of a Yamaha boat motor I can use.  I also like to find a diagram photo for the Yamaha water pump and for the prop-end of the lower unit.  No Luck

      Is there a Yamaha dealer around?
      Could you take your own pics?

      Go to Flickr.com, and type in "Yamaha boat engine"  "Yamaha boat motor" or "Yamaha boat prop" to find those pictures. Make sure to give attribution to the owners of the pictures by linking to their profiles on Flickr.

        Really good idea, I'd just assumed Tamron would have already done that....

        I tried flickr with every key word I could think of no perfect image to demonstrate my hub.  I found 2 images but not really what I was looking for.

        A comment found at the bottom of the page containing one of those pictures:

        "Copyright © 2000-2013 Boats.net
        All Rights Reserved."

        Most, if not all, of those photos are illegal to use.  The large majority of photos produced by a google search are illegal and just plain wrong to use.

          I do not use Google to get photos.  I know better!  I have another hub I can't seem to find an image for and I have been searching for a year or better.  I will probably move that hub to my blog.  I already moved a bunch of hubs to my blog they seem to be getting more traffic on my blog.

            I know you know better, Tamron; you've been here plenty long enough to know you can't just take whatever photo you want.

            Others do not, however, and often think that any photo they can find is free for the taking.  It was those people I was actually talking to. 

            Good luck finding what you need.  I've almost given up on finding pics such as you are looking for; anyone taking them understandably doesn't want to share. I know I don't, when I take detailed pics of a repair project.

              I know that you cannot use certain photos I just did not look at the page.

      You can also email Yamaha and ask for permission to use a picture. If you specify the image and request permission in writing, that should be sufficient. Just keep the permission on file.

    Try to find the products on eBay.

  3. snakeslane profile image81
    snakeslaneposted 3 years ago

    OK, I can totally understand that...An online dealer who can send you a catalogue with permission?
    Or better still. a Yamaha blog where you could request a pic?

    Can you find a video? If you have a video you can take a snapshot in vlc media player. Try Youtube.

    Here is a method one publisher recommended to me.  Go to google.com and click on "images."  Put in a search word and hit enter.  In the upper right corner, you will see a cog like wheel. Click on it and then on the scroll down menu, click on "Advanced search." Scroll down to the last item: "usage rights."  Click on the down arrow and select "free to use or share, even commercially."  You may get a lot of goobly gook, but you will also probably get the photo that fits your needs.  Morguefile.com also has a lot of good quality photos, many of which are free to use (check on the license to determine availability). I get most of my photos this way.

      If you're using that method with Google, I hope you visit the original site, and check that the photo IS truly free to use commercially.   Google does get it wrong sometimes.  And that you're attributing the image as required depending on what the original site says (if it says nothing about allowing use, then it's not free to use).

        Thanks for the warning. When you click on the picture in Google images, you have the option to visit website.  By the way, I forgot to mention that you should click on the image before copying so that you get the full image instead of the thumbnail as well as the full credits.  This was recommended to me from one of the top online news websites, by the way.

    I tried this just for fun and did indeed have fun. One of the images for "Yamaha boat motor" was a pod of Beluga whales. So I am thinking that one must have a good sense of what you are looking for, what it actually looks like.

    Where can i find royalty free pics for my hubs?

    1. chasmac profile image100
      chasmacposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Royalty Free doesn't mean free to use. It's a legal licence term meaning that if you acquire an image under a Royalty Free licence, you don't have to pay royalties each time you use it. You normally just pay a one-off fee.
      Follow VinitaAmrit's suggestions about using free images legally but don't confuse those licences with Royalty Free images, most of which aren't free.

        Absolutely right, good point.

    You can find royalty free pics through Google and yahoo search.
    For Google search here is the link http://www.google.com/advanced_image_search
    Set the "usage rights" as per your requirement.
    The most prefered by hubpages are the pics created with creative commons permission that you can find from http://search.creativecommons.org/
    And from a few more sites such as
    http://www.fotopedia.com/search?q=Canad … ial_modify

    Do read the hub guidelines to use pics http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/legal-image-use

    Normally I'd refer to the fact I've written hubs on this subject, but in this instance I'd suggest two routes as the item is so specific:

    1] Contact Yamaha direct with your request.  Press office/media office is what you want.  They give away images to people promoting their stuff - however, expect them to [a] question who you are/to see where it's to be put.... then to get a refusal.

    2] Unless you've a specific reason not to, contact some dealers and offer them 2 links in your hub back to their website in exchange for permission to use images off their site.
