I thought I would share this with my hubpages family http://ebsco.smartimagebase.com/home high quality medical images to use. They even have a download button for ya always attribute. I didn't see where you have to attribute but do it any ways.
Sorry to put a dampener on your discovery, but this a medical stock library. The images are all copyrighted and watermarked. The FAQ makes it clear that "You may not publish the images on a public web site, or use them for promotion, marketing or sales. For more examples of restrictions, please read the full agreement."
I think we can't use the EBSCO images on HubPages if we have ads turned on for the Hub we are illustrating -
From http://ebsco DOT smartimagebase DOT com/about
"SMART Imagebase users may download images for educational, non-commercial use in lectures, presentations, slide shows, web sites and more. Common types of visual presentations include PowerPoint™ shows, handouts, poster sessions, and interactive Flash animations."
(I also find the words "Copyrighted Materials" watermarked on the images.)
From http://ebsco DOT smartimagebase DOT com/license-agreement
Commerical news and education uses requires the payment of a fee.
'It is not OK to...Use a "Non-Commercial" image if you have ads turned on for your Hub. If you are earning money from your Hub, it is commercial, and you can therefore not use images that have been designated for only non-commercial use.'
Am I missing some public domain images? Thanks!

I'm planning a hub about one particular actor in one particular scene of a movie. Without a visual representation of the actor in the scene the article would be meaningless, but no free or non-copyrighted photos appear to exist. To me this seems a classic case for Fair Use, as reflected in this...

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and I was just wondering if this affects them in any way...

Has anyone ever run into copyright issues using images from photobucket? I like the selection at photobucket, but it seems like people post a lot of photos they probably do not own. I like using photobucket, but there's this thought in the back of my mind wondering if I've stolen someone's photo...
