I'm writing a hub on electronics and I want to use press images from the device manufacturer. How do I attribute them properly?
Check the copyright specifications.
Use the photo capsule to add a link to the source if they only ask for attribution.
I cannot find any copyright specifications. Where should I look for them?
Contact the source where you found the images, and ask for the copyright holder's contact information. Then contact them and ask for permission to use the images for commercial use. Also ask them how they want those images attributed, and any other restrictions (is it a license or a permission?, etc.).
If there is no copyright specification, then the image is copyright and you're not allowed to use it. That's how copyright on photos works - if there's no statement, it's copyright. If it's available for license, there will be a statement accompanying the photo, telling you how it can be used.
You can normally find the pictures you want on a company's press page on their website. Just email and ask permission to use them. If it's for review purposes they'll give it. Then attribute it as "Used with permission of XYZ Ltd."
Thanks, guys. All this information has been really helpful.

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and...

Okay, Hubpages. I was giving you all kinds of love because you have a track record of being sensitive to copyright issues. Because of that, I'd started posting my original photo essays here even though they make more...
