Am a newbie here although an experienced writer. I'm just wondering on which website I can get a wide range of photos or videos that I can use for my hubs. Spent hours looking online for one to no avail. creativecommons.org had no photos I could use. My hub is about divorce and legal separation. Please help!
You can use videos from YouTube with no problems. As for photos, there are quite a few sites out there. You would have to examine the licensing to see with photos you could use under the Creative Commons licensing.
I like morguefile dot com. A lot of the shots are slightly amature but they are searchable and indexed nicely and there's a crop feature before you import the url... which means I don't have to download fix then re-upload into HP.
And they mention a lot more at the bottom of the front page on Morguefile

I mainly use the http://search.creativecommons.org/ because it allows you to choose various sites to search, including flickr.com, google images, Wikimedia Commons and You Tube (amongst others). All you have to do is enter your search term in the main box, then click the 'box' of the site you want to search. If you did this I am really surprised you couldn't find anything based on the subject matter you described. If you use my link this is what you see on the page (apologies for small image, but it gives you the general idea):
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...
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...
