When I use my on photos, should I include an attribution. Should I type in my own names as the source or leave it blank?
I don't think it's required when it's your own photo, but I do it anyway....
It's not required to publish on HubPages, but it's a good idea because it helps to establish trust with your readers and demonstrate that you are an expert with personal experience.
It is also required in order to be eligible for some HubPages programs and contests.
It's not required, but I also do anyway. How else is anyone going to know that you took the photo? It is also a good place to place the copyright symbol.
As a photographer myself, I definitely agree with Christy in this, especially because I use my own photographs within the blogs I create. It is a good way of getting your name out there, as well as shows your own creativity and talent.
Be careful not to link too many times if you have your own photography site (i.e. don't link each photo, just write your name). If you do have a site, maybe leave it down at the end of the post in a "link" box.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

I want to be sure I'm doing this the right way. I've been showing Audrey Hunt and the photo date for attribution on my own photos. I've also used Audrey Hunt/vocalcoach (my hub name) and the date of the photo. The Learning Center doesn't give information for attributing your own...

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,...

Does HP need to see the link in order to know that the picture was legally obtained?They insist on it in boot camp, but what about afterwards?I know Pixabay and some other free-image sites don't require attribution. I do it anyway and include the link because I feel I should credit the...

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...

Hi all,I'm new and still getting the hang of how we do things here at HubPages. Even after going through the Learning Center, there are still some things I'm a little confused about. To begin with, I recently got feedback from another hubber who pointed out that I didn't list any source or...

If I can't do my own photography, I go to great lenths to credit the source I've used, but I have noticed that some of best Hubbers use a photograph with no credit, then there are others who go to a lot of trouble and time to make sure their photos are credited. Is there something I don't...
