Is it necessary to add a picture to a hub?

    I was just wondering, if it's all that important to include images to a new Hub.

      i think so.... 'a picture is worth a thousand words' right?...or whatever the expression is ....the pic may initially attract someone to read what is written

      I would certainly encourage adding photos.  The stats allow me to see how many views my photos get, and it certainly reflects that the photos do draw in viewers.

    Hubs without pictures can't be added to the selection of featured Hubs on your profile.

    Of course, those photographs must be legal for you to use them smile

    A photo also increases the chance that someone will pin your hub on Pinterest.

    If you had two magazine articles in front of you, both on the same topic, which would you be more drawn to, the one with a photo included, or the one with just text? Photos and illustrations add visual interest. As Uninvited Writer said, you need to make sure they are legal, but there are a lot of options for providing visual appeal to your text.

    It is not a "must do" but adding picture(s) to your hub does make it look more appealing,
    You must ensure the photos are legal and not copyrighted aswell before you upload any.

    I had posted to this thread earlier, but since then I have been to Google Analytics and was checking out some things. What I noticed was that my hubs that had interesting photo galleries on it, well the traffic to those slideshows outweighed the views of the hub. Not sure if that is good for the overall statistics of a hub, however it does show me the value of using related photos as they seemingly do draw more views overall to the hub.

    It depends. Most of the time I think you will like to add pictures. Other times you maybe want to make a point about pictures and you don't add any picture.
