Go to Flickr.com, and type in "Yamaha boat engine" "Yamaha boat motor" or "Yamaha boat prop" to find those pictures. Make sure to give attribution to the owners of the pictures by linking to their profiles on Flickr.
I do not use Google to get photos. I know better! I have another hub I can't seem to find an image for and I have been searching for a year or better. I will probably move that hub to my blog. I already moved a bunch of hubs to my blog they seem to be getting more traffic on my blog.
I know you know better, Tamron; you've been here plenty long enough to know you can't just take whatever photo you want.
Others do not, however, and often think that any photo they can find is free for the taking. It was those people I was actually talking to.
Good luck finding what you need. I've almost given up on finding pics such as you are looking for; anyone taking them understandably doesn't want to share. I know I don't, when I take detailed pics of a repair project.
Here is a method one publisher recommended to me. Go to google.com and click on "images." Put in a search word and hit enter. In the upper right corner, you will see a cog like wheel. Click on it and then on the scroll down menu, click on "Advanced search." Scroll down to the last item: "usage rights." Click on the down arrow and select "free to use or share, even commercially." You may get a lot of goobly gook, but you will also probably get the photo that fits your needs. Morguefile.com also has a lot of good quality photos, many of which are free to use (check on the license to determine availability). I get most of my photos this way.
If you're using that method with Google, I hope you visit the original site, and check that the photo IS truly free to use commercially. Google does get it wrong sometimes. And that you're attributing the image as required depending on what the original site says (if it says nothing about allowing use, then it's not free to use).
Thanks for the warning. When you click on the picture in Google images, you have the option to visit website. By the way, I forgot to mention that you should click on the image before copying so that you get the full image instead of the thumbnail as well as the full credits. This was recommended to me from one of the top online news websites, by the way.
I tried this just for fun and did indeed have fun. One of the images for "Yamaha boat motor" was a pod of Beluga whales. So I am thinking that one must have a good sense of what you are looking for, what it actually looks like.
Royalty Free doesn't mean free to use. It's a legal licence term meaning that if you acquire an image under a Royalty Free licence, you don't have to pay royalties each time you use it. You normally just pay a one-off fee. Follow VinitaAmrit's suggestions about using free images legally but don't confuse those licences with Royalty Free images, most of which aren't free.
Normally I'd refer to the fact I've written hubs on this subject, but in this instance I'd suggest two routes as the item is so specific:
1] Contact Yamaha direct with your request. Press office/media office is what you want. They give away images to people promoting their stuff - however, expect them to [a] question who you are/to see where it's to be put.... then to get a refusal.
2] Unless you've a specific reason not to, contact some dealers and offer them 2 links in your hub back to their website in exchange for permission to use images off their site.
I received an email that a new Hub is "eligible" for a niche site. But it suggests I need to proofread it before it can move over. I edited the article for readability and ran it through a spelling and grammar...
I have a hub that currently gets an amount of Google views per day I'm not allowed to specify, but which is certainly much more than most of my hubs that have already been moved were getting on Hubpages proper....
When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added...
The picture showing Queen Elizabeth and Michelle Obama with their arms around each other is ubiquitous on the web. I have a blog paralleling President Obama's First 100 Days in Office and our 100 days of being...
