I have got an email from the HubPages team that my article is eligible to be moved to Delishably, but I need to address this issue:
Additional note from the editor:
Hey! Your article looks great! We'd like to see just a few updates before we move it to Delishably.
1) Please move the list of photo citations to each of their respective photos. Each photo has an option to note who the photographer is and which license allows you to use it. Plus, the article looks cleaner when the attributions are in the appropriate fields below the pictures.
Here is the link to my hub:
How do I attribute the sources? Shoud I link the license in the source URL and the photographer's name in the source name?
Usually I attribute the pictures in the boxes (under the images) itself, but this time I thought that the hub would look neat if I mentioned them at the end. But the editor has asked me to change this.
All help will be appreciated, thank you!
Sakina, I understand your frustration. I always preferred to credit the photographers at the end of my Hubs,but now editors want them in the photo capsule.
The correct way to credit is to give the photographer's name as the Source and put the photographer's website in the URL. It is not strictly necessary to quote the licence details.
Minor correction - "I have been living in Kuwait since the past 14 years" should be either "I have been living in Kuwait FOR the last 14 years" or, "I have been living in Kuwait since 2003".
One more thing - I'd be tempted to add an introduction to the section on dates, something like, "If you have never visited the Middle East, you may not be aware that there are many different varieties of dates."
Hi Marisa! Thank you so much for helping me out. I just have one small question. I have used the pictures from Flickr in my hub which were uploaded by the photographers under Creative Commons license. So, on these pictures "Some rights reserved" is shown in more details. When we look into this, the license gives us the opportunity to use, share and modify (sometimes) the images, under the condition that we attribute the license properly.
So, like you have mentioned above that I should put the photographer's name in the Source Name and his/her website in the Source URL. Then where do I put the attributions for the license? I have had this question since long but I never asked because mostly I use my own images or free images for the hubs. But in this case, I had to use these from Flickr.
Yes, the editor did notify me like you did about the sentence in which I have mentioned my residence in Kuwait. You're right about the introduction to the section of dates. I will make the necessary edits. Thank you so much once again.
The requirement is to attribute the photographer not the licence.
