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 photos. Help please.
Maybe just write "Author's photo" in the section where it says "source"?
@ good friend, vocalcoach:
You mean that now I have more to remember? Now I copy the URL (www.pixabay.com) and place it in the Source when all I need to run is poppyr's suggestion?
If HP gets more complex, I may go to bed.
Kenneth, the OP asked how to attribute photos they took themselves with their own camera.
For Pixabay photos you don't need the URL. All you need to do is type Pixabay in the Source box... but you don't even have to do that. Pixabay doesn't require attribution and HubPages doesn't care
Hoooo-Raaah! (Marine Corp. yell). Are you serious? Yahooo! (my jubilant chant and a delicious chocolate drink).
Thanks and Happy Memorial Day!
Yoohoo is the chocolate drink, and it's not delicious.
@ Melissae1963, I was only joking. Oh, I see the typo.
LOL. I hope that you are not offended. What about
Hershey's and sweet milk?
I simply write it as "own photo" in the source column. And, when somebody clicks on it, I hope, it clears tells that it is an own photo.
The short answer is that you own the copyright of the photo, so there's no "wrong" way to attribute. You can even choose not to attribute at all and you aren't breaking any rules or laws.
The long answer is that it's a good idea to let your audience know that the photos are your own because it adds to your credibility as an author and shows that you have personal experience with the subject. There are a variety of ways you can do this. Some choose to put "Author" as the source, some use their real name, and some prefer to use their HubPages username.
I write "Photo by Shauna L Bowling" as the source for all my own pix.
I just put my name or pen name in the source of the photo Audrey.
I almost always use my own photos. When it's an old one from an album I attribute it like 'Private Album' and when it's one I took myself I attribute it with ©Titia Geertman

It's easy to give credit for a single image/photo. But what if a hubber makes a collage of 2 or more photos? It becomes a little tricky to properly attribute each of the respective owners of the different photos in your collage. We can attribute all the respective photo owners in a separate text...
