Take a look at this poem I edited. It was originally 100% words. It was very short, and I had no pictures to emphasize it.
In editing it the other day, it occurred to me to change it up a bit, and make it something of a visual poem...
See what you think. Does it still 'flow' okay, with the sense of the query intact?
I found it to be a very nice and wonderful presentation. The pictures were very suitable and emphasizing your point with more strength.
Loved it Liz, I should have left a comment.
A couple of tips: if you are using your own photos or photos from Pixabay, you don't need to put anything in the "Source" box at all. It's permissible to put a credit at the END of the Hub instead, e.g. "All photos from Pixabay or by the author".
In this case, because the images are part of the poem, I think it would flow better if you left the source box blank. Then you wouldn't have the word "source" appearing under the image.
I always try to make my images landscape as that looks more balanced. There are some great landscape images of black cats on Pixabay.
Thanks, Marisa, for using that word 'landscape'. I had to look at the other meanings of "landscape" so as to get to your point. I know that a landscape refers to an image of a beautiful scenery. But, now I found it that it further refers to the images of more width than height also.
Oh, okay. Thanks Marisa. I'll fix that! ☺
Do you think it would still work if I also removed the capsule titles, and let the pictures speak for themselves?
Ooh, good question. I think it could work! The only thing I'd suggest is, can you find a better photo of a mirror? Maybe I'm slow, but I couldn't work out what the picture was at first.
hmmm...I can see...I searched specifically for 'broken mirror,' and that was the best that came up as an actual photo; the other images were like clip art, and I know HP doesn't like those.
I'll look again.
As for the black cat (you mentioned before about the size); that's a photo I took of one of my own cats... It's sort of a tribute to her memory.
This one's from Pixabay
This next one's from Flickr, which means you need to credit the photographer, but that's as simple as pasting this URL into the Source URL:
I liked it.
For the heck of it, I did a Google search for "pictorial poem". All sorts of auto-completes were triggered and the bottom of the page was filled with even more queries. You may be on to something. Based on the queries I observed, the only suggestion I can think of is to add the additional keyword, "Short", to the title.
I would display the photos without a frame and also remove the last title. As for the photo of your cat:I took the liberty to give it a full width size, sufficient for HP. Just copy and save it on your pc and then upload it in your hub.
I've made a broken mirror for you too. Feel free to use it in your poem. Or if you want a more simple one I can make that too.
Thanks very much! I wish I could take credit for the photos; unfortunately, I've not had the opportunity to go out and take miscellaneous random pictures of 'stuff,' very often, so I have to rely on sources like Flickr and Pixabay.
Talking to Titia Liz, but you do too. Your black cat is perfect.
But, aww..thank you. that was our dear little "Soot." She passed at only 4-1/2 years old from a mystery illness. Every test the vet took was negative; even a necropsy didn't show why she had died. We were heartbroken; she was such a sweet kitty.
Lizzy, the reason I put those photos in here is so you can use these photos in your hub. I made them especially for you, no need to credit them. Copy them, save them on your computer and upload them in your hub.

Hi, I'm running out of places to find photos for my articles. Is there a website that you go through to be able to use pictures for free? (And attribute them of course).

Hi, everyone! My article "7 Facts About Japan That Aren't Actually True" has got quite a lot of views already and traffic will likely increase if it gets moved to a niche site. Shortly after publishing it, I got an email saying that it was eligible for WanderWisdom if:Title/Subtitle...

Is anybody using pictures from pixabay or using own images? What is better?
by Catherine Giordano 3 years ago
Does HP need to see the link in order to know that the picture was legally obtained?They insist on it in boot camp, but what about afterwards?I know Pixabay and some other free-image sites don't require attribution. I do it anyway and include the link because I feel I should credit the...
