please if anyone can tell me if there is a correct way to attribute for creative commons.. and if this applies just to flickr or other sources.
I found this to be helpful:
1. keep intact any copyright notices for the Work
2. credit the author, licensor and/or other parties
3. include the title of the Work
4. the URL for the work if applicable
5. If you are making a derivative word or adaptation, in addition to the above, you need to identify that your work is a derivative work i.e., “This is a Finnish translation of the [original work] by [author].” or “Screenplay based on [original work] by [author].”
* Let the author know. Leave a comment on the image, send them an email, a Flickrmail whatever. Flickr doesn’t provide trackbacks, if you don’t tell them you used it they may never know. People like to know when others are using their works or citing them. Plus, it’s just nice.
please someone answer me I would be very grateful for your assistance.
What do you mean by creative commons? I use flickr quite regularly, but don't understand what you mean.
You can't use just any Flickr photo. Some are "all rights reserved", meaning they're copyright and you mustn't use them.
To find photos you can use legally, use the Advanced Search and tick "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use".
Then you MUST acknowledge the photographer. It's not compulsory to include a hyperlink to their photostream on Flickr, but I think that's the least you can do. You can't make a caption a hyperlink, so I thank the photographers at the end of my Hub and include links to their photostreams.
Salt, you can't use HTML on HubPages so you have to copy the URL of the photographer's photostream and create a link using the chain icon.
salt, I'm no help, sorry..
I also signed up to do the creative commons license thingy....
must've done it wrong, 'cause I was never able to get it on my hubs...
creative commons is a form of copyright that lets you decide if and what part and how someone else can use the content of what you wrote, with your permission.
thanks richard. I thought there was a way of backlinking to the flickr page.. but your way sounds good and should cover everything ...thanks
still need to work on this one... flickr has a share button with html, but I am unsure where or how to use.
thankyou.. it seems thats what I thought, but it is lovely to have it spelt out for me. I have been using the creative commons advanced search - as you taught me!!!!(again thanks.) I just wasnt sure how to attribute it properly. I will improve the way I do it.
I need a cut and paste page so I can transfer work and URLs more easily... I got confused by the share it button on flickr and didnt know if there was something there I used similar.
WHAT I DO REMEMBER IS YOUR LOVELY HELP MARISA - THANKYOU... ITS MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE!!!!

is it necessary to cite the origin of your photos if you downloaded them from somewhere? and is it necessary to copyright or somehow mark photos posted that you yourself has taken? thank you in advance for any input.

I'm new to hubpages. I think I'm writing some pretty good content, and it's a great way for me to unwind and get back into writing. I'd love to beef up my hubs with some attractive photos. I understand there are issues...
