I've written (but not yet published) a hub titled "How to Find a Superb Dog Groomer." I used photos from the dog grooming business owned by my sister (with her permission), and provided the source and URL of each photo, which I understand is required.
Before I publish the hub, I want to make sure it doesn't violate any Hubpages rules, including the one about being commercial. I've read what I can find in the Help section about this, but am unsure I've got it right. I don't have an Adsense account yet, so is this an issue?
If you have permission for the photo, you're fine so long as there aren't watermarks or the image isn't grainy etc.
Anything else we can't answer until you publish it.
I do have permission, there are no watermarks, and the pictures are sharp and clear. I'll delete all but one outgoing link, reread the draft hub tomorrow morning, and then publish it once I'm sure I'm in compliance. Thanks for the help!
You could publish your hub and apply later for an Adsense account. It may not be good to have the URL on all pics.. they may get picked up for overly promotional.. so it would be good to mention that all pictures are from the same source.
Hubpages does not allow more than two out-going links to the same site in a hub and frequently linking to the same site across all your hubs...
I hope this is of some help to you.
If I understand you correctly, I should remove the URL from all but one picture, so there's only one outgoing link. My intent is not to promote my sister's business (she's already turning business away); I was just trying to follow the rules on identifying the source of photos. Thank you for your help!
Or you can add a line at the bottom of your hub saying where the photographs came from.

Is this a good idea? If so, how does that work?

is it necessary to cite the origin of your photos if you downloaded them from somewhere? and is it necessary to copyright or somehow mark photos posted that you yourself has taken? thank you in advance for any input.
