    I love all the beautiful pictures i see,on peoples hubs. Up till now, i have been taking my own photo's.
    I am not sure how to get pictures from wikipedia or video from you tube?
    I am not a wizz with computers. I can't seem to work it out.
    Does anyone have some advice to offer please  smile

    You can use any picture that has a creative commons licence, provided you put in a tag where you you got it from with the name of the person to whom copyright belongs.

    You can use:

    www.freedigitalphotos.net
    http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Categ … and_images
    http://www.freephotobank.org/main.php

    You can also google the words 'free creative commons licence photos'. There are many places.

    You can use any video on youtube. However, sometimes, people don't want you to. In that case, it will state that. If you use it despite the owner saying that they don't want it embedded elsewhere, it won't work on your hub.

    Hope that helps.
