Are you allowed to post photo's that others have taken about the subject line of your own hub. Meaning my hub is about home repair and remodeling and I need photo's of work in progress but have none of my own. Am I allowed to find other photo's on whatever subject I am discussing and publish them on my hub, only for instructional purposes.
Please feel free to use the free photos I have posted here at hubpages if any of them suits you. You will be able to find them by searching the site.
Hit "advanced search", select "commercial use (with attribution)", and make sure you take note of the name of the person to whom to attribute the photo.
I do it quite simply by saving the image as "imagename by photographername.jpg", so that I can use the photo again later without having to go and look up the name of the photographer.
I just wanted to drop you a line thanking you for your help on my photo issue. Its refreshing to get so many helpfull suggestions, yours being on the top of my list as far as the direction I will go on getting the photo's I need.
...and just to clarify, you then have to include the photographer's name, and a link to their Photostream, in your article.
There are lots of photos on Wikipedia that you can use because they are covered by Creative Commons License. Most photos on Wikipedia come under this heading, and I think its safe to assume they are CC pictures, unless it says differently on them.

It's easy to give credit for a single image/photo. But what if a hubber makes a collage of 2 or more photos? It becomes a little tricky to properly attribute each of the respective owners of the different photos in your...

One more "thing" comes up; copyrights are said to expire after 72 years... so, would images taken back in 1915 be considered public domain by now, especially if the site containing them is a government...

I have gone back and tried to fix my photo attribution issues on many of my pages. I'm hoping I have this right. Can someone who understand photo licensing look at these photos and see if I'm getting it...
