    I have gone back and tried to fix my photo attribution issues on many of my pages.  I'm hoping I have this right.  Can someone who understand photo licensing look at these photos and see if I'm getting it right. smile  Each of these has different types of licensing from my own photos to public domain to CC to used with permission. Thanks in advance!!! … ing-Strong … ility-Show … er-Tourism

      You posted one of those Hubs twice. 

      If a photo is Public Domain, you don't need any attribution whatsoever, though you can do so if you like.

      HubPages states their standards for photo attribution here:

      You seem to have followed it pretty well.  To my mind, their method is way over the top, but if you want to play it safe, follow it.

        Thanks Marisa.  I changed the repeated link to the correct link.  I think to be safe I'll play by their rules, plus it is only fair to attribute someone's work when possible.  I appreciate you looking at it!!!  I'm glad I'm figuring out how to attribute photos properly now rather than later as it takes a long time to go back through my hubs to correct this.

    In the meantime, while I go through each hub to fix improperly credited images, will it be ok to just take them down and use my own? For example, I'm starting with my hub on black tea. I have taken some pics to replace those that I got online. I will research, keep, and properly attribute those images on other hubs if I can, especially if they contribute to the overall look of the hub. I already read the instructions in the learning center. Is this acceptable?

      What photos you use is entirely your choice.   If you have your own photos, that's great - HubPages encourages using original photos.  Just be aware that photos online are likely to get stolen, so don't post any photos you're not prepared to share.

        Hi Marisa,
        I'm ok with sharing. I just completed my revisions on two hubs, "Black Tea" and "Having More Patience." They actually look much better with my photos. I rearranged capsules, changed titles, added new text, etc. Thanks for your response.

          It's interesting to go back to your Hubs again, isn't it?  You surprise yourself with all the little things you 've learned since, and you see all kinds of things you can do better.  So it sounds like you'll get some benefits from all this!

            Most definitely. The learning experience is invaluable. I'm still loving it.
