How would one secure pictures of current events?
I'd like to write some hubs that reference incidents to the daily news. Is there an easy way to use some of the pics found in papers and new magazines.
Perhaps you should aim to take your own photos, and try to cover local events. This would give your more local traffic, and the major news sites are already covering the national headlines anyway.
Okay, you can use them legally with permission. If they appear on an "images" search page, it is courteous to name the source and include the URL of the website. Notify them, and offer to send a link to your article. The link might get your email spammed if they don't know you. They will either say yes, or no . . . in which case, you take it down mucho pronto. Then again, you may not hear from them until the subpoena arrives.
I hope you know that I am just joking around. There is a cornucopia of answers and hubs on this very question in the vault.
All you have to do is run a search for "news photos". You will get hundreds of sources. Some make you join the club, but what the heck.
I make sure I'm not violating any copyright policies. Usually at the bottom of the article, it will tell you what their policy is on sharing. If it's O.K. to use but there is no way to capture the graphic, I use a program called Snagit. It can capture anything that is on a screen. I also use a Flickr site called creative commons. This is a site where people post their graphics with the intention of letting others use their work as long as they are given credit. I hope this helps.
SweetiePie has a point that you should try to take your own but if you can't get them take a look at this question:

I would consider Flickr advance search and looking for photos that allow commercial use under creative commons as good sources since many users are now streaming from public events. What is critical it you proper attribute the photos and you ensure that use under creative commons is approved.
Thanks, all of you. Very helpful. This is crazy. As a preacher I was always told to say much in few words. Shorter the better. Now HP won't let me end this note of appreciation after the first two sentences.

For example, do you publish on particular days of the week or time of day? Do you promote based on hot topics on social media or news stories/current events on broadcast media? How important is it to be aware of what's happening day-to-day that may influence they way readers search for information?

All I see on my news feed is articles written about the earthquake and I personally find that kind of annoying. I don't mean to call anyone out but it seems like what most people do is just read an actual news article about the event (in this case the earthquake) and then write it in their own...

I was wondering I tend to write things that I know about. But to drive your hub into the public eyes would it help to talk about the current events?
