I used to put 2-3, but then it became hard to juggle the layout when accounting for the fact that ads will take up space, as seen in 'preview' mode. So now I generally put just 1 image into my hubs, unless of course the hub is a step-by-step guide or something else that truly needs extra pics.
As many as it takes to help illustrate what the topic is, sometimes a couple, sometimes many (like if it's a band's history).
I try to only use a few. to many make it look junkie and I don't like that. besides you need room for the ads.
Thanks everyone! You all have great advise and information.
I too have been finding it hard to juggle the text and images around lately. Hum?
I wanted to see if I was normal in putting 1-2 images.
I like to generally have a few pictures in the hubs I create. I lke to have pictures cause they can help break up the blocks of text. I also like to use the thumbnail feature so if I have lots of pics that are relevant to the topic that a reader may like flipping through they can without causing a disruption in the look of the overall hub with tons of pics.
I will juts place ne photo. Too many photos take from the content of the article.
