Lately I've seen a lot of hubbers complaining about the amount of time it takes them to find (or create) photos. Here's something I do that eliminates most of these problems that may help.
I take very few or my own photos.
Instead I use public domain sites like Pixabay and Morguefile among others.
I also use an editing program called Picmonkey that allows me to manipulate photos in all sorts of clever ways.
Once I have a basic photo, I place it in a folder made up of files.
There is a file for each photo source, and within that file are other files that are labeled for content. For example, I might have a file for Pixabay that holds files for scenery, men, women, tools, etc.
When I need a photo, I simply pull up the already edited photo and use it as needed.
If I don't have a photo on file that will work, I find and edit a new one and then add it to the appropriate file.
So we can't persuade you to become an amateur photographer?
Thank you for sharing the important information
BTW, Snapseed is also one great app to edit photos
So you actually look for photos on a regular basis and keep a file of them, ready to use? Not a bad idea if you're looking for a particular genre. I never know what pic I'll need until I have a topic to write about. I do use those same resources you've named but not until I finish writing the article. By the time I write the article in the hubtool, I will have edited it several times and changed the theme slightly so I do the images last to fit the content. I think you're a little more organized than I am, TIMETRAVELER.
Well, it does help if you write in a niche, but even without doing that you can still set up photo files that will work and just slowly keep adding to them as you need different ones.

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...

Are we "penalized" if we don't follow the Hub Pages style tips? Are they requirements in disguise? If so, I don't think that's fair in all cases because it "dictates" how we should be writing our content. Also, in order to use an authentic photo, sometimes the photo might be...

We've been talking about leading photos in the forums and while it's not just about having a leading photo, it's about having a really great leading photo. We recommend this because we see these photos get shared a disproportionately number of times higher.The quote of the day "People...

Whitney05 always seems to include great photos in her hubs, and I'm wondering if she has some tips on finding photos, especially dog photos that are free to use. Anyone else who has tips for such free photos, would be appreciated for their advice.Thanks much.
