Using pictures

    I'm afraid I am not up to speed on a lot of technology that younger folks take for granted, but I want to use pictures on my hub but am not sure of what is  OK to use. Mostly I am concerned about copyright on any pictures I don't take myself. How do I know what is safe to use?

    You want to try to use pictures that have a creative commons license.  the best place I have found is flikr because it usually states expressly if the picture is copyrighted and how it can be used.

    Non-Commercial use will probably not get you in trouble anyway.  So don't be overly concerned about using a picture.  If it is from a small website you should contact the owner of the site to ask for permission to use there picture, they will usually say yes and be really glad someone appreciated there work.

      You guys are missing the easiest resource: 

      http://search.creativecommons.org

      The search bar is conveniently preloaded into your firefox browser on the right hand side- just use the drop box to change it from google

      CC auto searches flickr, google images etc.

    Wikipedia is a good place to get pictures also.

    As is this site: http://www.sxc.hu/index.phtml

    I use FotoSearch.

    http://www.fotosearch.com/ just uncheck where it says rights managed and check where it says royalty free. Then do a search.
