Hello ) Maybe this is a stupid question... It`s so difficult to find images for your hub...For example, I want to write about some YouTube channel. I've read the learning center guide on proper image use. But maybe it is possible to use an image from google plus profiles?
You can find good images to use on Wikimedia Commons Images. Search for your desired image, then scroll down below the photo and look at the copyright restrictions. If it is in the Public Domain, you can use it, with proper attribution of the source. Be sure to give credit to the image as required.
I wrote a Hub about how to use images legally, you'll find it on the slider on my profile.
No you can't use images from Google plus profiles.
Marisa, thank you a lot for your hub about flickr! And I edited my first hub, your article was helpful for me)
But all the same, there are so few photos on the Internet I can use legally. Is it OK to take a screenshot of a YouTube video and then use it as an image for a hub?
Screenshots are covered under Fair Use, but they should be correctly attributed and linked, and cropped in a way that makes it clear they are a screen shot of a video.
lisavollrath, thank you! So I can use as a source the link of a video on YouTube channel.
Yep. If it was me, I'd make sure the video has been posted by the person or entity who created it. So, if you're posting screen caps of a Disney video from YouTube, you should be sure the videos are on the official Disney YouTube channel, and not something posted by Joe Blow illegally.

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

Is it against Youtube or Hubpages TOS to have a monetized You tube channel and then write hubs about the same topic as any given video and embedding a link to Hubpages?
