One of my big problem is, I do basically nothing with pictures and videos. Because I'm not really sure where I can get them. I am more or less talking about pictures, but if their is some hidden secret with videos aside from youtube, that would be great! Also I am sure it is key to give credit? Thanks
Wikipedia maintains a large list of public-domain repositories for photos and artwork. I use only pictures that are in the public domain; those are free for anyone to use in whatever manner they wish. I also will use public-domain photos I find on wikimedia commons, but unless I either can verify that it is a public-domain photo or take it myself, I don't use it at all.
Please don't use photos from Photobucket. Many of them are stolen from other photographers and there's no way to track down the original source.
I think it's a disgraceful site - it encourages you to copy photos from the internet with no warning or explanation. If you search around, you'll ultimately find some very small print which says something like "it's the user's responsibility to ensure they do not infringe copyright by copying images to Photobucket". That should be in big letters when you join!
I use Flickr - use the Advanced Search and tick "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use". Then credit the photographer on your Hub. The selection is vast.
Got it.. thank you for letting me know.. this is turning out to be a tremendously informative thread. .. i haven't done much with photos anyway... thinking of buying a good performance camera. Have always enjoyed photography...

You may use images from sites such as Google Images, with the following caveats:
1. Images that do not have the copyright logo or words to such effects(all rights reserved for example) 2. You intend to use the images in your article to demonstrate a point or educate or show comparisson. 3. You may not claim the image as yours, or alter it in any way 4. You may not download images from a photographer's own web site.
see hubs on the issue posted under Creative Commons and Fair Use for more information or you can check into Title 17 USC 107
Yes, I also take most of my own. I always take my camera with me in case I see anything useful that I might be able to use in future. I have also in the past bought images from istockphoto but you have to dig deep to fond the cheap ones!
When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added...
Hello, happy new year, thanks in advance for helping me out. I'm new here, and I would like to ask, where do you guys get your photos? Hubpages clearly stated that we need to use original photos? But, I'm not a...
Has anyone ever run into copyright issues using images from photobucket? I like the selection at photobucket, but it seems like people post a lot of photos they probably do not own. I like using photobucket, but there's...
