How I find attribution and license information on photos before uploading into my hubs?
You can go to sites like flickr and the Wikimedia Commons to find images with the Creative Commons license. You'll find the license information of the image once you click on the image. You'll want to get the images that have the Attribution (CC:BY), Attribution Share-Alike (CC:BY-SA), or Attribution No-Derivs license (CC:BY-ND).
Check out the learning center hub on "A guide to proper image use on HubPages" for more information. You can find this by selecting the "help" link at the top of any HubPages page and then selecting the "learning center" link. Once there, you'll find lots of hubs with a lot of information. Hope this helps.
Thank you; but in fact, I have already read the hubpages guide and have attempted to use Flickr and Wikimedia Commons, unfortunately all the photos I clicked were watermarked or the attribution and license information were unrecoverable.
You're welcome. What do you mean by saying unrecoverable? If you go to flickr, make sure to choose the advanced search option so you only see pictures in the Creative Commons. There's also other sites that have legal images you can use like pixabay.

I tried to upload pictures for a new hub, but got a white box with an "X" instead of my pictures. I haven't had this problem before. Anyone else have problems on New Year's Day?
