I have a hub already to go but I am reluctant to publish it because I am using pictures that have been sent for me to use on my hub with permission from the photographer. What I want to know is whether or not it is okay to provide a link to the photographer's website acknowledging that as being the source of the photos? I know he is okay with my using them and not crediting them but I feel that I ought to.
So, my question is would there be any "penalty" for doing so?
Raisingme - I always include a link to the photographer's site. You are never penalized for including a link to another site, where did you get that idea?
The only time you can be penalized is when you include more than two links to the same website in a Hub.
When I've been given permission to use photos, I give credit to the owner in the caption below the picture. I also provide a link to their website in the Links Capsule.

I took pics with my camera of images on my tv screen. Is it legal to use them? Edited? Specifically, is it illegal to use them in monetized hubs?

It is discouraging to find yet another website which has copied pictures of my family, my pets, my articles, used my titles and created a website that impersonates me. Today I've already wasted a couple of hours...
