Just noticed my two public domain images for my creative call outs to invent a replacement word for "love" and "loss" were removed. Its the first time. How come?
Did you accredit them properly? Are they clear, well focused and edited properly? I would read the learning center to see what they have to say about images and then compare that to the ones they removed. Images have to be really good to be able to stay on a hub if it is to be featured.
Maybe you don't understand the word "public domain". A lot of people are.
The fact that a picture is in the public domain does not make it free to use. You need to check its copyright and royalty status/
Where did you source your images? You didn't say.
I think the OP is referring to photos they posted in the forum? I may be wrong.
I havent been super scrupulous with sorurcing all the time and its been ok. Just will have to be, now....thank you everyone
Here's the Learning Center entry about proper image use.

Looking for this link, I see that they have changed the format of the first page of Learning Center. It looks more like Pinterest.

I was reading about the proper way to attribute photos here and I read that if you are an apprentice, you still have to attribute photos that are public domain, so they can be verified. How do...

All photos but one were snipped today on one of my best performing hubs. Is this a new editing policy in light of Maven? There was a time when we were encouaged to add at least 3 photo images that would enhance our content. The photos that were remove from my hub were not necessary but added...

Hi there, joined HP a little while ago but only just got round to writing my first hub. It is going to be an historical piece but seem to be spending most of my time trying to find who owns copyright to the images I would like to use, which are all dated between 1920's and 1950's, and then trying...

Just wondering, is it necessary to mention source link while using photos from search engines. And, if I do will it be beneficial for my hub or not?
