    Attributing Public Domain Images?

    I understand Public Domain Images don't legally require an attribution but what is Hubpages preference.Is stating 'Public Domain' as a souurce with a link to the relevant source page sufficient/appropriate?

    Hi Rob,
    my understanding is that even if the photo is on Public Domain, if available you should have the following info on the attribution:

    - Name of Source box: image authorʼs name, type of license, and
    source site, e.g., Loganandgarth, CC BY, via Wikimedia Commons
    - Source URL: copy and paste in the URL of the image

    If you want to read more about it, this is the link to the HP guide on photo attribution:
