    I just joined the other day and I've started to put together some Hubs.  Thing is, they look a little sparse without any pictures.  Where is the best place to find pics that I can add to my Hubs without violating any legal or unwritted rules?

      Hi Mickelarr,

      A great website that I've discovered is for photos is:


      I've just started out too but have already used them in several of my posts. They've got some pretty good photos.

      Welcome to HubPages.

      I use the Creative Commons search and check mark use for commercial purposes because my hubs have ads on them: http://search.creativecommons.org/

      From here, you can specify Flickr or other sites and hone in on images that are available to use on a commercial page. Check the rights for the size of the image you want to download -- sometimes not all sizes are available under Creative Commons.

    --Wikimedia Commons
    --Flickr with the Advanced Search set to "Creative Commons / Commercial Use Only" (be sure to give credit and a link back)
    --Stock Xchng (some photographers there ask you for credit and a link plus notification...there's a small comment box where you can notify them)
    -- Clker.com for clip art
    -- Morguefile
    -- NASA, NOAA, USGS (images on U.S. government websites are usually considered public domain UNLESS otherwise specified on the page -- check terms of use to be sure)
