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?
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.
--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

By now, it should be clear to any one that your hub will only show up with a picture next to the summary... if you have a picture in the first place! The problem is picking the right picture, but still keep it legal. I...
