Where is a good place to get legal clip art images to use in hubs?
I've seen some really cute, cool clip art images in hubs? Where's a good site to look for ones we can use? There are times when clip art is more appropriate in a hub than are actual photos. Thanks!
I've used this site a lot, so I'd recommend it. The pictures are royalty free and they are free to use on your hubs as long as you give them proper credit:
Creative Commons licensed photos are photos that you can legally use on your hub provided that you meet the conditions of the owner of the photo, which usually means giving credit to them via an attribution next to the photo.
You can find creative Commons licensed photos by ...
1. Doing a Creative Commons search in Flickr
2. Doing a creative Commons search using Google images
3. Or from Wikimedia Commons.
I have written how to perform these searches here ...

Great question and so glad you asked it. I use freedigitalphotos.net which have some good photos and clip art but are limited in creativity. Microsoft also has some good images but some do require a fee.
In my opinion, many people are using images, videos, charts and graphs thinking that their usage of these entities falls under the category of fair use.
I have been using Flickr Creative Commons of late. The link to the Creative Commons page is below:
Type in "free online clip art" on google. There are a lot of good sites for this kind of stuff.
Google of course! Simply head on over to Google images at - http://www.google.com/imghp
Once you've loaded the webpage, type in the keywords for the images you're trying to find. Then once you've come onto a first page of results, click on the cogwheel to the right of search. Click on 'advanced search' from the drop-down box. you'll find yourself on this page... https://www.google.com/advanced_image_s … p;tbm=isch
Now, where it says "type of image" click on clip art, and where it say licence change it to 'free to use or share, even commercially.
There you go! All legal for use! However I do recommend that you give attribution to the author of the image, by leaving a link to the original website.

I am reading more and more Hubs where there are beautiful photos, but NO attribution to them. I just read one that clearly has a watermark of the person holding the copyright. When you look at the photos, it...

I see Hubs where beautiful photos are used and are from Pinterest. The photos are usually credited as being from Pins. Are we allowed to use those photos??

Can we use Google Images on our hubs?I see many hubs with google images and yet I heard we are not supposed to use them.

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.
