How do I ask authors if I could site there information?
If you're quoting only a small portion of a larger work, you really don't need their permission. Let's say you wanted to use a paragraph from one of my hubs to help explain something in yours. You can copy/paste that paragraph, use the quote feature to set it off from your other text, and then list my name and the title of my hub. Although I still retain the copyright for my work within your hub, you can use it by the "Fair Use" rule that is part of the copyright law.
That same rule applies to any other published work you want to quote. Here are things to remember:
1. It can only be a small portion of the entire work, unless you do get permission.
2. Always name your source - both the author's name and the title of the article, hub, book, etc.
3. The quote should be a very small part of a larger and unique work you've written.
Smart move Sheilamyers.What if a want to use a picture in my work? How do i get permission to use that pic.
sheilamyers pretty much nailed it. However I will say that most authors wouldn't mind so long as they are given proper credit and a back link. It would be an organic endorsement for something they did, as well as an unintentional advertisement. Blatant, uncredited stealing is what authors worry more about.

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and...
