What are the major free sources of pictures for hubs? How I can use effective pictures in my hubs?
For Free images I use Wikipedia commons a lot. I like that as a source because they do give you the Creative Commons License attribution for the image as well as who is the author of the image.
There are other good sources for Free images too. Be careful to be sure and attribute the correct Creative Commons License if given or its proper attribution. Those sources are
More information of how to use images and correct attributions can be seen at the Learning Center under A Guide to Proper Image Use on HubPages
Hope this helps
I mostly use wikipedia commons. Only at times, I use pixabay or some of those e-tailer website photos which are also free. But you need to give attribution to source by importing the url on your photo capsules.
You can create your own pictures relate to your hub. You need use your imagination and see how it goes. If the pictures are not good. Hub pages will let you know. Good luck with your pictures.
