What is the easiest way to put information to attribute a photo into your hub?
I've just been putting a little description link under the photo - but it seems there is an "official" way to attribute the picture that I'm missing out on. I want to go back through and make sure I only have properly attributed photos - and I really want to learn this before I consider signing up for the apprentice program.
Elle-the best suggestion I have for you is to go to the Learning Center and review the tutorial there. The HP team has created lessons with visuals to review and apply. Best to you...this is something I too am often puzzled about.
I don't know about easiest but I tend to place it in a text block at the end of the article with the title of the photo and where it came from. Often I include a link to the site and I always set it to open in a new window so that my readers stay on the page. Don't want to lose them!
When you upload or edit a photo there are fields you can put in a source. I think that is the best way to do it, as it then appears in the Hub under the photo,.
The HubPages Learning Center is the best source for answers to questions such as yours.

I found this Learning Center article very helpful as well. It is the first lesson of the Apprentice program.
Okay thank you. I use the learning center alot, but hadn't seen this article. Thanks.
What you are doing ElleBee is fine, but you can also enter a source on your photo capsule if you would like. I hope this helps. Keep on hubbing
The best way is to take the pictures yourself, I know you can't always do this, but the more pictures you have on your hub with links to other sites the more it cuts down on the juice(as they call it)to your hub. Taking your own pictures is a way to cut down on that
The easiest way I've found that meets the apprentice program's standards is this:
Source: SOURCENAME via Flickr. LICENSETYPE/PERMISSION
URL: ACTUAL URL
I use a lot of wikimedia photos. Many are public domain or have attribution information stated clearly. I put the source which is usually a person's name and then the website source they provide. If there is no website provided, I use the wikimedia web address. For Google, after looking for watermarks, I check to see if it states that the photo is copyrighted. If not, I copy the web address provided. Occasionally when I do that, a message pops up that it is copyrighted. If not, I use it and use the web address provided for my source. In the photo capsule, there are two places for source information. In the top one, I put a name or public domain. In the second one I put a website address. So far I haven't had an issue except once when what I thought was a lock of hair on a woman's face turned out to be a watermark. ooops.

I want to be sure I'm doing this the right way. I've been showing Audrey Hunt and the photo date for attribution on my own photos. I've also used Audrey Hunt/vocalcoach (my hub name) and the date of the photo. The Learning Center doesn't give information for attributing your own...

My hubs have been attacked lately and scrutinized. Now my best one is down due to "watermarked or pixelated photo". I know what a watermark is, but what the heck is a pixelated photo!?

I am reading more and more Hubs where there are beautiful photos, but NO attribution to them. I just read one that clearly has a watermark of the person holding the copyright. When you look at the photos, it is clear they were taken by a professional photographer.What are your thoughts...

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?
