If a photo capsule similar to amazon is made available, appearance of the hubs will be better than their present appearance. Just giving key words related to topic will provide several photographs. There is a provision in squidoo lenses to insert photo module and after giving keywords it autyomatically displays photographs from Flicker. I am not sure about its advantages but it is surely useful as many hubbers have to look for photographs from the net to beautify their hubs.
This idea wouldn't work but I know what would!
Why not have a capsule for Flicker? Like for people to display and sell there pictures here. Due to Flickers standards you can't just put bad images in, they need to meet qualifications. Photographers can have a special "low" price for the pictures they sell on Flicker. This doesn't make Hubpages any money directly, but will grow the community on Hubpages for better or worse.
It's just an idea that sounds cool, will give some people more incentive to join Hubpages and write.
I'd like to see something similar added to Hubpages, there is a lot of growth that can happen here!
PS: Hubpages might be able to work out a deal with Flicker, maybe it get 10% of all sales due to the flicker account being linked here!
Squidoo has this capsule. I like the idea, but you still have to get permission from those who post picures on flickr to post the pictures within the capsule. It's a pain. You can't just post them, even though it gives a link to the original picture.
Currently you can still do the same thing with the current capsule. The only difference there isn't a link back to the original picture. You still have to ask for permission and you can still post using the picture URL, versus the page URL.
can we submit photo from free photos website. i think it is a good idea
Thanks WhoArtNow, thranx and whitney05 for the opinions about this idea. In fact, my idea was to have a Flicker capsule (similar to squidoo) in addition to existing photo capsule.
Eh, there's really no point in two different photo capsules, especially if you still have to ask permission either way and you still have to input a link or upload a picture. They're essentially the same thing minus a link back to the original picture, which you can do by posting the web URL in the caption box of the current photo capsule.
I don't see how HubPages could do a deal with Flickr because they're not set up to sell photos.
However, they could do a deal with a company like Dreamstime, or any of the other companies that sell photos. Obviously, the capsule would only feature photos that are for sale, not the free ones.
That kind of capsule would work exactly like eBay or Amazon but have the benefit of giving you some great-looking photos (without having to ask permission, because you're advertising something that's for sale just like eBay).

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

I found it very hard to work with it, almost impossible. As before I clicked on Computer, press Browse,and had the picture. had all my uploaded pictures there and pressed to uploade it. Now I can't get into my picture file. I can't download all the pictures for my hubs about a country.

I am trying to post my first hub and have my content capsule saved. I cannot get my photo to look clear. I have added and deleted several of my own photos and they look grainy when I crop to small size. I think I must be doing something wrong. Is it better to try to find an online image and will...

Thank you to everyone who reported problems with the photo capsule. A new release just went out that fixed a big issue with Internet Explorer that was causing all kinds of problems and understandable stress for a number of users. I apologize for this, especially because it took so long to track it...

I tried to place a photo capsule to the right of a text capsule.I couldn't find any instructions in the FAQ or a hub that addressed this matter. So I started clicking various up and down arrows and shift right arrows and ended up with a plate of scrambled eggs. I had text boxes out of order, two...
