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. Each of these has different types of licensing from my own photos to public domain to CC to used with permission. Thanks in advance!!!

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.
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!

Has anyone at Hubpages ever received a bill for using an Artist's work or a Photographer's Photo on a a hub? And if so, how much? I'm curious, because I've written to artists about twenty five times during my time writing here to ask permission to use a photo, and not one of them ever...

The last HubPages weekly delivered to my inbox informed us that " Under copyright law, the owner of a photo does not have to cite sources, and public domain photos do not require citation either. So, we can't force Hubbers to cite their sources,".Yes you CAN, HP. It's your site. Just...

Does HP need to see the link in order to know that the picture was legally obtained?They insist on it in boot camp, but what about afterwards?I know Pixabay and some other free-image sites don't require attribution. I do it anyway and include the link because I feel I should credit the...

It's easy to give credit for a single image/photo. But what if a hubber makes a collage of 2 or more photos? It becomes a little tricky to properly attribute each of the respective owners of the different photos in your collage. We can attribute all the respective photo owners in a separate text...

I want to be sure I'm doing this the right way. I've been showing Audrey Hunt and the photo date for attribution on my own photos. I've also used Audrey Hunt/vocalcoach (my hub name) and the date of the photo. The Learning Center doesn't give information for attributing your own...

If I can't do my own photography, I go to great lenths to credit the source I've used, but I have noticed that some of best Hubbers use a photograph with no credit, then there are others who go to a lot of trouble and time to make sure their photos are credited. Is there something I don't...
