Adapting an image to use in a hub.

    I have looked all over tarnation for an appropriate image to use in a hub. I cannot find even one that is in Public Domain or Creative Commons. There are a lot I could use from Bing images, but they are not free for commercial use.

    I found one I like very much and it would be perfect ! If I take that image and change it a little, adapt it to fit my hub, can I claim it (my adapted image) as mine and use it?

      Have you tried Pixabay?

        Yes, I search Pixabay often for images. I love Pixabay. The only problem I find with that site is there are few old images or Native American images that I can use. Also, no Kachina images I can use for this particular hub.  The image I want to adapt with a different background is of the Blue Kachina - a beautiful image. I find it strange that no one claimed ownership of the image. I wish it could be submitted to Creative Commons.  Thanks, Marisa.

          Sorry Phyllis, reading the rest of the thread, I totally misunderstood you.

          Do you know how to use Google Image Search?   

          Firstly, if you have an image which you've saved to your computer:

          Search for your item on Google, and click on "Images" to get the image search.   Then click on the little camera icon in the search box.  Then click on the "upload an image" tab and upload the image.  Google will give you a list of websites where you can find that image, and that can be a starting point to track down the owner.

          Secondly, if you want to find images you can adapt:

          Use the Google image search, click on the little "cog" icon in the top right hand corner and select "Advanced Search".  Scroll down and you'll find a box that says "not filtered by licence".   Change that to the option you want.

          Unfortunately the results will include a lot of results that aren't actually available for use - it's not particularly accurate!  - so you have to go to the actual website for each image and check.  However there will be a reasonable number that are useable.

            Thanks, Marisa.  I will save your notes so as to remember. I appreciate this.

      No matter how much you edit an image, if it's not marked for use,allowed to be edited, allowed for commercial use etc  by its author you may not use it and it is never your own.
      Even if many others have used it and regardless if you can't find the author do not use it unless you can clearly see the copyright allowances.

    It will usually say that you can change it if it is free for you to use.
    I use Wikimedia Commons if I don't have a picture of my own.. the ones that have this:
    You are free: to share – to copy, distribute and transmit the work
    to remix – to adapt the work
    Under the following conditions: attribution – You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).

      Hi Shyron. Yes, I do use CC and always notice that statement on "free to use/adapt', which is very helpful. However the image I want is nowhere in CC or PD and I cannot even find who the artist is or any credits. So many people have used the image and I search their sites to find credits - nothing! No one has given any credits information (if there is any). Thanks for commenting.

      Mark, that is precious and so kind of you. I just may use it. You even drew the four point star which identifies the Blue Kachina. Thank you~

      Mark, I think you're on to something... a new service by Hubpage artists that will allow other hubbers to use or create  work as long as it is credited.wink

        Well I just drew it for fun and as an exercise.  If Phyllis can really use it that is great but I am happy enough that she even considered the idea!

          I am serious about using it and will treasure it always, Mark. - I will figure out where to put it in my hub.  I will definitely credit you.

            Photos at US government sites are all considered Public Domain. You might try that.

                  Mark, I just sent you the story of Moses and the computer in a fan-mail message.
                  Enjoy.
