    Can someone please clarify Photo attribution?

    I use a lot of photos from a free stock images site.

    From what I can tell, they only require one link on the page if you use multiple images from their site, although they want specific credit to the photographers of each photo.

    From what I can tell from Hubpages, they want each photo to have a link as part of the attribution for a photo

    I like using lots of pictures, although would prefer to not put a link on each image, if I credit the source who the photo came from & the site (not as a link), then on one photo make it a link

    What do you think?

    If you link to the same site more than twice, you'll get a notice saying the hub is overly-promotional even though you're only doing it to give credit where credit is due. I would do it as you mentioned. Write the person's name and the name of the site and make the first attribution a link to the website. An alternative would be not to create any links under the pictures themselves, but write a small notice at the end of your hub stating something such as "All photos are used by permission from" and put the name of the website as a link.
