To find where other images can be found (e.g. to find a source of an improperly-cited Creative Commons image that doesn't name license type of link back to the source), you can use TinEye: http://www.tineye.com/
You can also search the user's name on Flickr and find the photo through his/her account.
Though.. I might avoid using that photo. Just to be extra safe, ad-wise.

It is on flikr so I would attribute and link to it there, http://www.flickr.com/photos/19414697@N00/274111950
I am not sure where adsense stands on the old breastfeeding pic showing nipple issue.
I wrote an article about breast implants on my blog and there are photos of breast on there and no public ads appeared. So I can't see why that photo would cause a problem?
Your photo's on breast feeding may or may not get through with the Ad's turned on. I have a hub that was published in 2011 with good views, but it has just been seen to have photo's and images that are to sensitive for HP's advertisers, what ever that means. My Ads have been turned off by HP. The photo's in question where about a Cystoscopy examination I had twice with different instuments in hospital. The photo's showed how the instument was inserted into the bladder to see if I had a problem (cancer). To show this you see the instrument on the inside of a mans private piece (penis). This is all information for men and is a medical hub and should only be taken that way, so I to don't see the problem. In the end I have today deleted all photo's and images from the hub, and destroying the power of the hub.
I struggle with that one too. I try to take my own pictures just to make sure I'm ok. I know google images are off limits. Other than that I site the web address and name.
I try to use my own pictures if I can because I struggle with this too. Otherwise I list the cite and the URL. I know we are not allowed to use google images. Sorry If I sent this twice. It is not showing up.
I struggle with this because on occasions I will see 4 or 5 people claiming to own the Pic.its not just on wikihow
In this case one person is showing who owns it on Flikr, and linking right to that person. So I think it is fairly clear.
I am not sure what you mean "no public ads appeared"?
Did you turn off the ads, or did adsense turn off the ads?
If the hub will have breast pics it is good to get prior permission as per: http://hubpages.com/faq/#adult_topics
In this case the person was clearly saying they got the picture from Flikr, and the person on flikr made it available under CC. It was definitely available to use.

I'd like to know if the main image you use on your hubs affects either ranking or traffic. I know the thumbnail plays a huge role in YouTube videos but what about our hubs? Does it matter?

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative...

Have you ever noticed that you spend more time allocating pictures and images for your hubs than you do actually writing it?
