After months of troubleshooting, I am finally able to create and edit hubs. Don't ask me how. I tried so many things short of formatting my laptop that I'm not entirely sure what finally worked. I published a new hub and noticed that the photo attribution is missing on the published version. In the hub tool, I have filled in and saved the source (my own photo) but it is not showing up. Is this something new? Does the source only show up when it is not the author's own photo?
That's how it is supposed to be. They don't seem to see visible attribution as important anymore.
Thanks, Kylissa! Photo attribution was a huge issue a few years ago so I made a huge effort to replace everything with my own photos. And I admit I kind of liked getting credit. I wonder why this changed? Does anyone know?
Personally I think it's a disgraceful step on the part of HubPages and very rude to photographers.
As a writer, if someone quoted my work, gave me credit for it BUT hid the credit behind a tiny symbol that most people can't even see, I'd be insulted.
I had been planning to go back and add visible photo credits by putting them in the captions instead - the links won't be live, but at least they'd be visible - but haven't gotten around to it yet.
The attribution appears when hoovering the mouse cursor over the letter i at the top right of the image.

I'd love to see a photo credit line in the photo capsule. It would be in addition to the caption and would be a hyperlink. If you used it, you'd get "photo by [photographer's link]:" under the photo.A large proportion of Hubbers use Creative Commons photos and this would...

Strolling through the vertical sites I see so many photos that are either not credited at all or there's only the mention of a name. Is it not a rule anymore to give proper credit to photos that are not your own even if you get them from free sites?

Hello fellow hubbers! I just want to know if I violated the rules in HP regarding over promotional on hubs. I usually have images from freedigitalphotos.net cause aside from the fact that they offer free photos, I find the images really appealing. Now, all of my photos come from that site and...

Has anyone at Hubpages ever received a bill for using an Artist's work or a Photographer's Photo on a a hub? And if so, how much? I'm curious, because I've written to artists about twenty five times during my time writing here to ask permission to use a photo, and not one of them ever...

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...

The last HubPages weekly delivered to my inbox informed us that " Under copyright law, the owner of a photo does not have to cite sources, and public domain photos do not require citation either. So, we can't force Hubbers to cite their sources,".Yes you CAN, HP. It's your site. Just...
