pixelated picture is like that BY DESIGN

    I received a message that reads:

    "WARNING: This Hub appears to contain low resolution or pixelated images


    This hub appears to contain low-resolution or pixelated images. We recommend that you replace or remove all images that are pixelated from this Hub. You can also try shrinking the display width of pixelated images to make the image more clear, either by editing the photo capsule or by moving the capsule using the right arrow so that it displays at half width."

    The pixelated picture in question is like that to illustrate a point.  While this may not be a popular technique it is an effective and legitimate one.  I do not want this misguided "warning" to affect the standing or marketability of the hub.  Please address this concern.

    sincerely

      You can email team@hubpages.com and someone will look into this. 
      Be patient though, it might take a while to hear back.

      This Hub has several badly pixelated images.
      This is an example of one of the most pixelated.

      We suggest uploading images at least 1000 pixels wide in order to avoid pixelation.

      You might be better to use soft focus to blur  the pictures, or another special effect, rather than pixelate them.  It might look more deliberate and less like an accident.

    Is this the hub?
    http://michaelkitz.hubpages.com/hub/Fai … es-exposed
    or is it this one?

    I'm afraid I don't understand the point of using low-res images in either.  But if it serves some artistic purpose, perhaps you should explain it so readers aren't confused.  A lot of visitors to HubPages just skim, and skimming through low-res images doesn't entice the reader to stay on HP or check out your other articles.

      The one in question is the second one on
      http://michaelkitz.hubpages.com/hub/The … est-Hebron
      The second pic is the same as the fourth pic before it was detailed (and the hand removed.).  It has the same resolution on the page that it has in the mind of the character who is obsessed with discovering a Wild Baby.  She can sense it is there but cannot quite make it out.  As the caption explains, "My wife knew clarity only came through steadfast research and sincere pondering..."  Later, when her husband creates a fake one ("Voila!" pic 4), it fits with the unclear picture ("clarity.." pic 2) in her mind to insinuate that she will believe it.  I am working on a better picture at the end to illustrate better what the "actual" Wild Baby looked like but have not completed that...
      Thank-you for taking the time and thought to reply.  I may need to revise my visual ideas in order to make them more palatable. sincerely, mk

        Those pictures you are giving credit to "mkcollection", MK Collection deals in textiles. The owner of the images is Patricia Piccinini the artist and creator. Did you get permission to use and change those images for your own profit?

    Michael,

    I read your fairy tale hub and I really liked it.  I do think that you need to read the Learning Center entry about correct use of images. I liked the images, but am not sure that you are using them legally.

    This forum has a lot of advice about where to find legal images for your hubs.

      That's exactly what I was thinking. Do you have permission to use those works of art? Or are they in the public domain? Many of them are quite detailed and beautiful, appearing as if they took lots of time and hard work on the part of the artists. I'm thinking several artists are going to be upset if they discover their works being used without their consent and/or without any sort of compensation.

      If you do have permission or they are in the public domain, be sure to cite that and give credit to the artists.

      So you are Patricia Piccinini? I mean, it is logical to inquire about rights transfer when the creator of the image and the hubber have different names. It is the creator whose permission is required. In this case the creator of the artwork.

        michaelkitz removed those images of Patricia Piccinini's artwork from that hub.

          The fairy tale hub is the one I was referring to in my earlier post. It contains several works of art, apparently by a variety of artists.

            I see what you mean. I now wish I had not done image searches, because my other computer was compromised on "the black forest" wall paper image search from the fairy tale hub.  Crap!

            Dangerous trying to help someone out who asked for help.

          My point is he that did not in fact have permission to use all images marked as "mkcollections".  Maybe he does now, I haven't looked--but the point being made was valid when it was made. But saying 'he asked himself for permission' is disingenuous at best.
