    Where do you get pictures for your hubs? What are the rules of using pictures from other websites? I get mine from photo bucket because I know those are legal.

    I have used my own pictures including a few I have taken from an airplane.

    I usually do a search on free to use graphics then check the sites TOS to be sure they are actually free.

      Good approach.  All photos and graphics on the internet are copyright, unless the site's TOS says otherwise.

      A lot of people assume it works the other way around, and everything is fair game unless the site specifically says it's copyright.  Not so! 

      Personally, I use flickr.com for almost all my pictures.  Use the Advanced Search, tick "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use" and you'll get lots of photos.  All you have to do is credit the photographer - I usually do that by giving them a hyperlink in the credits at the end of my Hub.
