    Proper use of photos in hubs?

    Here's how I do it. I usually take what I like off Google and then cite the pic's URL in the caption (and in the "URL source" text field). To me this feels pretty legitimate. Is it right or wrong? What is the proper way in a few words. Thanks!

    You have know way of knowing if you take a picture from Google if you have the right to use it or not. You have to only take ones that say they are copyright free. This site helps: http://search.creativecommons.org/

    So I was going to summarize the article from the learning center. But it's a really long article and I realized there were some photo citation rules I didn't know about. Check out this article and it will tell you everything you need to know as well as give you links to websites that have photos you can legally use. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/legal-image-use
