    Hi, I have just finished editing my first published hub and would love if you can read it and provide advice before I start planning my next hub.

    Thank you!

      One suggestion - make sure you understand how to do photo credits.   I have a Hub on how to do it properly, you'll find it in the slider on my profile.   Linking to the photo itself is the wrong way to do it.  Also if you use photos from sites like News.com.au, they're liable to sue you - all their photos are copyright - so careful!

          Another FYI: The photo "Amelia and North" is marked on Flickr as "not for commercial use" with a dollar sign crossed out, so it cannot be used on HubPages, which is considered all commercial.

          Hope you enjoy writing your reviews at HP.

            I was a bit uncertain on whether I can use that photo or not, so thank you for pointing that out and I'll be more careful next time

              I was very confused about images and their usage during my first year on the site. Hope your writing goes smoothly!

                Thank you! btw I have a few questions on using images
                1. Are you allowed to use images from blogs such as blogs that contain pictures of films?
                2. do you know any sites where I can find non-copyright film pictures?

                  Most images from films are copyrighted as far as I know, except films in the public domain (mostly a few old black and white movies).

                  Contact the blog owners you mention about using their images and see if they will give you permission to use them. It could be that they needed permission from the distributing and production studios to use them inthe first place.

    I enjoyed your Hub, I liked the film, watched it on Halloween. Try shorting your title. Why not cut it down, rake the statement " A chilling and horrific journey on the grief of a loved one" to just below the large photo. Sometimes it helps to shorten a title. If you have some followers have them leave a bit of feedback. Otherwise I think you did a great job.

      That's a really great idea and I will change the title. I currently have no followers but will do that in the future. Thank you so much for reading my hub and the idea and i'm glad you liked it, will post more soon
