I remembering reading somewhere that if we use someone else's images in our hubs that we have to include where we got them from... we have to include the source. If I include photos in my hubs that are my own do I have to put my name in the Source field cause I haven't done that for any of the images?
If you do not put a source in the source field, you imply that you have the rights to that image (and typically that you created it). I don't typically credit myself when using my own photos in Hubs.
That said, many Hubbers do, so it's up to you!
Ok. Thanks Simone. Just making sure I am not violating anything by not putting my name in the Source field of images. Don't want any issue with Hub.
I always put "own" in the source so it is clear. I don't put my name, because I don't want to publish it on hubpages.
When I use my own photo in a Hub, I put "me" as the source. It's worked fine so far.

Just wondering, is it necessary to mention source link while using photos from search engines. And, if I do will it be beneficial for my hub or not?

In a recent HubPages weekly email, it was discussing the fact that many use photos and do not provide a source. I was thinking that this may easily be addressed by HP by requiring a source in the source field inside the photo capsule, whether it is "self" or the Freedigitalphotos,...
