    Hello, I am introducing myself here, I've been on Hubpages since October last year and gradually learning and finding my way about here. I've been writing for a year & a half on another writing site but wanted to expand my horizons.
    I have published 7 hubs so have not yet been able to get Google Adsense approval. I have problems with images sometime spending hours trying to get an image that is not blurred. When I try to save an image from Flickr I can only download it. When I grab the code from an image and try to copy it, it gets rejected. Does this mean I have to get permission from the photographer? Thanks if anyone can help, David

      Not every image from Flickr is available for you to use on a website.  This explains which photos you can use and which ones you can't:

      You can get any image from Flickr although sometimes you have to click on it twice and it is easier to "save image" to your computer instead of "downloading" it.

      Whether you can use it or not is a different story. You must see the author's copyright notice and adhere to it if you want to use the image and many authors do not allow or rather permit others from using their work.

      There is a related Learning Center Hub that has image usage guidelines and best practices. It isn't specific to Flickr, but more general.

      I wrote a Hub about how to use Flickr images legally.  You'll find it in the slider on my profile.

    I always save the image to my computer and then import it from there into my hub.  I generally try to use those images that are public domain, to ensure correct attribution.

    Hi DaveOneline
    If you are still unable to save image from Flickr please do the following. Click on the picture and then on the option to save in a new tab. Once you do this you will see three small circles to the right of the pic that once clicked gives you the option to download or save/view. You will then be taken to a new window where you will see the copyright status of the pic. You will be able to save from that window.

    Foter.com provides an easy way to search Flikr images available for commercial use.

    On flickr, I also click on advanced search in order to check the boxes Creative Commons and for commercial use. That way I know that any photo I find I can use. And as others have said, it's easier to save the image to your computer and then upload it to a hub.

        You're welcome! When I first started at HubPages, I had no idea where to look for pictures, what kind of get, how to attribute them, etc . . .  There's a lot to learn!
