    I want to use good photos of my own for hubs, but if I want to get things published soon enough, I have to make the effort to use stockphotos or source photos from somewhere else.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to best no cost or very low cost options.

    Flickr or Wikimedia Commons (via Wikipedia).  Do an advanced search on Flickr and tick the boxes for Creative Commons licensed content and commercial use.  You will still need to credit the creator and give licensing info. 

    For Wikimedia, find it via the bottom of the page on Wikipedia.  I look for public domain images as these are simplest regarding rights, but still give attribution.

    Wikipedia have an ongoing appeal for funds: I certainly owe them some dosh for their services to the community, and so do most of us I would think!

    A personal thank-you to the picture creator probably won't hurt either.

    use google image search, most of the images are not copyrighted, and if you give owner a link credit, things will be fine usually. It's zero cost solution

    Google image search is not a good place to find copyright free images, the same with photobucket...

    This hub gives good copyright free sources

    This question has been asked many times, if you do a quick search on finding images you will find other suggestions.

        I also think www.photobucket.com has great collection of pictures you could use but if you have a camera phone or a digital camera, you can always snap any view that interests you and that will be perfect for you.

        Happy New Year

    You don't know if the pictures on photobucket are copyright free. People take pictures from whereever they find them and upload them.

    Bing has free photos just double check for copyrights , I have actually located the photographers and asked permission on a few of my hubs so that I could actually use there photos. My 09/11 hub was one of them and I backlinked her page. Her photos were wonderful! smile

    the best option is for you to snap your own pictures as that will further encourage you to right more.

    We get inspired by things we see, stories we heard or books we read, taking photograph by yourself will inspire you to write nice articles and maintain your originality.

    so, kit yourself with a camera phone or a digital camera
