    If a photo belongs to a writer

    Can the same photo be used in 2 different articles on 2 different websites (but having the same topic) ?

    If you own the copyright to the photo you can do what you like with it. Google doesn't identify photos as duplicate content.

    From what I understand if it is your photo you can choose wherever you want to use it. I don't think this is copyright infringement.

    Are you talking about using the same picture on the hub on different hubs? as long as they are free you can do what you want to....

    Hi rajan, if it is your photo then you can use it wherever you like. If the photo belongs to someone else, you can also use it in two different articles/websites as long as you give the owner credit.

    I often use the same photo on different hubs (esp medical hubs) and have been doing so for over 2 years. HP has never flagged a photo.  The only thing they look for is duplicate content in your writing (verse, prose, sentences, etc.).  Now that...I have plenty of experience with! 

    Because others have copied my content, I have been accused of duplicate content on my own original work because others have copied it into their hubs, websites and blogs and identified it as their own.

    Photos - as long as they are YOURS or public domain, go for it!

    I would say yes, as long as you give the ownership details for the photo if you are not the photographer.

    If you are the photographer then.. absolutely!
