I have several hubs that I have written and are published but I've found that the images I put in aren't showing. I only see them when I go into edit mode and they appear to have been edited out.
I can't figure out why. The hubs are long enough and in most cases there are only three photos. For instance I have a hub that is 1628 words in length and I included three photos from Flickr that I credited. (they were available for commercial use and were high quality) However only the introduction photo shows up. The other two appear to be edited out. The photos are on topic. (for instance, in the hub referenced, I'm talking about 1970's music and the photos are of 1970's musicians)
In another instance, the most extreme, I have a hub that is only 1500 words and it has 15 photos from 5 or 6 different sites (ok for commercial use, high quality, appropriately credited) The photos are part of a poll or "test" at the end of the hub. It's crucial to the content. (It's a hub about Rabbits,and the photos are of... quess what? Rabbits.) I assumed they weren't published because it was too excessive (15 photos) but based on other hubs, I guess that is not the reason.
Why are the photos edited out? Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom.
As others have mentioned, editors will do this when the images are pixelated, obtrusively watermarked, or spammy (think a flyer for a company). Editors may also do this for clip art and generic stock photo images; we strongly discourage authors from using both, and in some cases the editor will determine that the images actually detract from the message of the content.
If someone uses clip art will that prevent the article being moved to a niche site?
I thought of that for a second too. But nope, just two days ago my hub which I updated passed the check to remain on a niche site. It uses clipart. I think it just needs to be relevant and done in the right way.
If the editors think it is bad enough, they will snip or hide the image, but they won't reject articles simply because they contain clip art or stock photos.
Ruth, am I to understand that you can see the images when in edit mode, but they are sort of grayed out? If that is the case, they can be retrieved. If they have been removed by a HP editor because of poor quality (watermark, or as lobobrandon pointed out, pixelated images) then this fix will probably cause your article to be unfeatured for quality.
(If it is, you will have to find and download images of a larger size so that they are not pixellated.)
To fix this, go to the article and then click on edit mode. Go to the first image you want to recover, and click on edit. When the image displays there is a box in the corner with the words "Dont display this capsule". Remove the checkmark from that box and the image will display in your article.
When I am displaying many images, as you described in your rabbit article, I select "thumbnail" so that they can still be accessed by the reader but do not slow down page load time.
Thank you! I'm not sure why they were grayed out (the quality was good), but your advice worked.

I am starting this suggestion here in hopes that staff will see it. Many of us have suddenly found large numbers of our hubs unfeatured for quality within the past 24 hours. Myself it has his 17 of my 221 hubs in my Squidoo-transfered account (this one), none in my other account.Some of the hubs...

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...

I have not used hubpages for around a year and have recently started to get back into it, I must admit that in the beginning I was a little Naive and posted images into my hubs willy nilly without thought of where they came from. I have recently recieved an email from a photo place saying that I...
