Where can I find images for my Hubs to showcase the hubs?
Where can I find images for my Hubs? I can write on many topics of general interest but I want to put at least one photo capsule to look appear it attractive and beautiful. Unless and until visitors are attracted to the Hub, how can they read it. I want to showcase My Hubs.
Congratulations on wanting to make your hubs the best they can be. Photos can be found anywhere on the web. Until you become more familiar with taking images from the web, try places like Flickr or photostock. Be careful to read any warnings regarding use. Some photos have a copyright. This will be displayed on the same page as the photo if this is the case.
I have found that by googling images for a hub I want to highlight (such as: food forests, water crises, etc.), I find many wonderful images. I usually take images from smaller bloggers or websites that do not generally use copyright material and I give credit to the site I took the photo from.
I find that no one (and that includes me on my blog) minds if you use the photo as long as you give credit where credit is due AND are not using it to make money with. Income from sites from Hubpages doesn't count because the small income generated is for the hub NOT the photo.
If you have any doubt about the use of an image, don't use it. Err on the side of caution.
There are several sites that offer free stock photos. www.morguefile.com is one. Just Google "free stock photos." Also getting a good little digital camera makes it easy to add your own images to eh hub. It is really easy to do.

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added or deleted.It's very frustrating. Yesterday I was told my hub on Zeus, the...

Regarding the latest newsletter about incorrectly crediting images, is it suggested that we take down all images that are not copyrighted or cites "google images" or "microsoft images." Should we, who are guilty, expect a violation email soon? Or worse, get idled?

Has anyone at Hubpages ever received a bill for using an Artist's work or a Photographer's Photo on a a hub? And if so, how much? I'm curious, because I've written to artists about twenty five times during my time writing here to ask permission to use a photo, and not one of them ever...

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative commons. I see a lot of other hubbers that do not cite their images correctly and...
