Ok, I'm asking for it.

    I've got my crash helmet and seat belts on. Please fire away with your critique! http://egamboa.hubpages.com/hub/Whats-In-Your-Cosmetics

    On this topic - check out a video called "The story of cosmetics (2010)" on YouTube.

    Good hub. You could maybe ad a poll, asking people about what price they pay for face creams, or how satisfied they are with results, or any other worthy research on the validity of cosmetics.

      Thank you Sue! Good advice…I'll try to add something like that in the future. I'm working on my second hub, and noticed that as soon as I put it up, even unpublished, it seemed to help the first, as that little blue "declining" arrow went away. So I'm thinking, at least I should get something new up, before I get to the other side of the bell curve on the first. Thanks again. P.S. is it a good idea to make changes like that, adding a poll…AFTER the hub is already published?

    You can edit / ad stuff to a hub at any time. In fact HP encourage updating hubs frequently so the content stays "fresh". Just make sure all the style tips requirements (top right in editing mode) are ticked to ensure optimum usage of all available capsules.

    In terms of the pictures one is pixelated and you should attribute the photo source even if it is just a caption saying they are your own photos.

      Yes, give credit for your photos.  If they are your own then just add EGamboa under the source box (where you edit photos).

    Thank you, Psycheskinner. Doing a photo review, here (I thought I made all the pics close to same resolution and size).

    But what if it's a stock photo I purchased to use. Like Istock?

      Then don't give a credit and certainly not a link. You are not required to give a photo credit by HubPages.  If you want to give a credit at the bottom of your Hub, you could say that you own the photo.

        That's right, but she can't say that she 'owns' the photo, if it's from iStock or similar. She didn't buy the photo, she bought a royalty-free licence to use it according to the licence conditions.

      IMHO if you wanted to avoid problems, credit it.

      1. Writer Fox profile image78
        Writer Foxposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        What problems?  If the copyright owner does not require a credit and/or a link, none is needed and it is not required by HubPages.

          QAP problems

          From the Hubpages help pages:

          "What is the proper way to use images on HubPages? ...  ALWAYS attributing others' images (whether legally required, as is the case with almost all Creative Commons-licensed images and many royalty-free stock images, or not); this makes it easy for HubPages staff to verify the you have properly attributed your images"

            Writer Foxposted 3 years ago in reply to this

            Image credits are not a part of the QAP evaluation. What you quoted is a recommendation, not a requirement.

              And yet fixing them has helped people get failed hubs past it.

              In any case, your assertion that Hubpages doesn't care about picture attribution is incorrect.  It is something they are getting increasingly strict about so people may as well start doing it now to save trouble later.

                Writer Foxposted 3 years ago in reply to this

                Your assertion that I presumably asserted that Hubpages doesn't care about picture attribution is bogus.  I never said any such thing. HP recommends image credits and HP also recommends using its copyright notice instead of a more accurate, personal one.  I use my own copyright notice.

                Do you not understand that EGamboa was asking about a photo she purchased?   She paid money so that she didn't have to credit an image and she is using it legally.

                I have never had a problem getting QAP approval without image credits.  I only use images which I created, are in Public Domain or which I have the copyright holder's permission to use and, for the most part, I don't choose to reveal my sources.

                  Hmmm. I'm glad I brought this up because there are many photo situations, and I think I'll go with, better safe than sorry. Although I rarely use photos that aren't either mine, or come from the stock company I subscribe to. Thank you so much for focusing on this Psycheskinner and Writer Fox!

    Hubpages asks that all pictures that are not your own be attributed whether this is legally required or not.  So the safe bet would be to do so.

      good point

  9. EGamboa profile image85

    But that does bring up a question; what internet images are you comfortable using and sourcing, without requesting permission for use?

    1. Writer Fox profile image78
      Writer Foxposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      You have to have permission to use an image which you did not create unless it is in public domain. You receive permission by purchase or by permissions granted in the Terms of Service where the image was found.

    2. psycheskinner profile image82
      psycheskinnerposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Your own, those provided for publicity use, those out of copyright, and those made available under a creative commons license via sites like wikimedia and foter.

      1. EGamboa profile image85
        EGamboaposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Define in the public domain

        1. psycheskinner profile image82
          psycheskinnerposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          It means no copyright applies to it.  For example: if it is old enough for copyright to have expired, or was made as part of government work for the public good.

            EGamboaposted 3 years ago in reply to this

            Is there a generalization that can be made about what on the internet is public domain?

            1. psycheskinner profile image82
              psycheskinnerposted 3 years ago in reply to this

              No.  Unless the site hosting the picture specifies that it is in the public domain, it should be assumed to be copyrighted.

                EGamboaposted 3 years ago in reply to this

                That's what I thought, so there's very little I would be sourcing; using my own pics and all
