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 I'm working on my second hub, and noticed that as soon as I put it up, even unpublished, it seemed to help the first, as that little blue "declining" arrow went away.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.
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.
"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"
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.
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!
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.
I have not used hubpages for around a year and have recently started to get back into it, I must admit that in the beginning I was a little Naive and posted images into my hubs willy nilly without thought of where they...
Hi to all you hubbers,I am just wondering: am I abandoned and alone in my singular thoughts or perhaps there are others like me! Surely in the year of moving forward and acquiring (hi squidoo's) it is time to preserve...
We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to...
Could one of the HubPages team confirm the official position re watermarked pictures? I know the rules say "prominent" watermarks are not allowed, but I can also understand the desire of Hubber photographers...
