      I enjoy the hubs that include at least two or three photographs or videos.  If an article contains no image and it held my interest I will read it.

    Every time you write one!...photos or not.  Of course, I would also look at photos even if they didn't come accompanied by words!

      I never came across a hub that only contained photographs.

    I will be honest, I don't usually read Hubs, or any website, if it doesn't have photographs or some kind of image. I am a very visual person, and I love pictures. I also like the way a Hub with pictures and images looks.

    I only read Hubs without pictures if I am really interested in the topic.

      I can relate totally with your answer.  Images make the Hub much more interesting.

    I just enjoy reading good writing, pictures or no pictures alike. However, a good photo is always a great way to capture the attention of others in our online writing world!

    If it has a title that interests me and the writing is good enough to draw me in, then I will keep reading.  But pictures do help to make the hub more interesting and to add more weight to the title.

    I really like the pictures it does draw me to the hubs.. but I am loyal to some hubbers I do know they are great writers and i don't care if they have photos or not.

    There are a few Hubbers that I would read their work without images because I know their writing is awesome; however, if I don't know the author, I'm not as likely to read the ones without an appealing photo to capture my attention.  I like hubs with lots of beautiful photos that make the story come to life visually for their readers.  Over 95% of the time, I choose hubs that do have supporting images.

      I think that is an outstanding answer.  Beautiful photographs make a story come to life visually.

    You have some very good comments.
    But I can only say how often do you pick up a book that has pictures in it. I love reading books whether it's "The Patriot"-"Alien" or "1Q84" sometimes more than once and these have no pic's or images.
    On the other hand a short story with a picture adds a little extra to the hub.
    Good question.

      Good comment that brings awareness to the paperback or hard cover books people love to read which often have no images.  Some subject do not need an image and some subject matter may require images to help people visualize what the writer is writing

    I love to read and if the article is interesting and informative, I get lost in it.  I don't miss the lack of pictures. 

    However, there are some photos that evoke emotion more than the written word.

    So, I suppose the answer to your question would be: it depends on the subject matter.  If pictures/images support the article then they should be included.  If the article stands alone without visual stimulation, then it's good, also.

    I read both.  I like both.

    I good hub doesn't need to include a picture in order for me to read it but photos add to the subject matter being read.  I read them as much as a hub without photos.

    We always feel like something is missing when reading through such a hub. The topic might attract readers if captivating. Photos do enhance the text. The better the snap, the clearer one understands the article. Shots have a way of saying much more than words can say. Why don't you try writing a hub using photos for a change? I've seen hubs with few words accompanying a lot of photos. When well chosen, they express much. Worth trying, huh wink
