Marisa, Ive found creative commons and have found some wonderful photos-
I seem to be finding it difficult to download or how to upload it . - hubpages asks for a URL and if I save a link to my computer, it goes back to the flickr page, I thank you for telling me about creative commons, and I would really appreciate your assistance as to how I get the photo to my hubpage. (()). Again, thanks, if not, Ill ask in the forum.
I think ive worked it out, saved to computer in jpeg and then add attribution. Thanks so much. If theres a better way, would love to know.
Salt,so sorry - this question didn't come up in my profile for some reason.
To use a Flickr photo without saving it on your computer:
Right-click on the photo and choose "copy image location".
Now go to the photo capsule in HubPages, select "URL" and paste.
Hit upload, add a caption if you like, and save.
Note you have to right click the photo to get the URL of the photo itself - it's not the same as the page the photo is on.
And for those reading this answer without knowing the background - you can use some photos from Flickr but not others. Use the Advanced Search, click "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use" and you'll get a list of photos you can legally use, provided you thank the author with a link in your Hub.
Here's a good creative commons site---> http://freecreativecommonsphotos.com
No watermarks and all that is required is a link back to the site.

is it necessary to cite the origin of your photos if you downloaded them from somewhere? and is it necessary to copyright or somehow mark photos posted that you yourself has taken? thank you in advance for any input.
