Can i use images from google or the internet?
What does "Images may be subject to copyright" mean? Can I use such images?
It's not a good idea to use images from Google or the web because many have copyright protections. When they do, it means you are using them illegally and can be sued by the owner of the image...and yes, this actually does happen. If you use a Google image you have to make sure it is labeled for commercial use and modifications. You would do better to use images from public domain sites such as Pixabay, Morguefile and Wikimedia Commons. With this last one be sure to accredit the photos as per their instructions.
Generally people quote images from the web with due acknowledgement of the source. It is the practice.
I did but got this on my hubpages tips: "We noticed that you may be using Google Images as the source of one or more images in your article. We recommend only using images that are legal use".
No it isn't. So don't do it

ok Thank you. so how do I get images for my articles? How do i identify the ones with CC and public domain?
We just told you. Use sites like Pixabay. And, there's a list on that link. Have you read it?
There are others not mentioned, such as Pexels and Unsplash. You can use Compfight to identify CC images on Flickr.
Just do a little research. As a writer, it's part of the job
And when someone does it with one of my images I send them a takedown notice, because I don't accept it at all. Any more than you would accept them lifting your hub and using it for their own profit.
No, you cannot use images from Google or that you find on the Internet if they don't have the correct license. You may get into legal or financial trouble for doing so. I suggest that you read this section of the HubPages Learning Center. https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … -image-use
Thank you very much but if I may ask, how do I identify images that have a Creative Commons (CC) or Public Domain license?
The license is often placed underneath or close to the photo. Sometimes a website states the licence of all of the photos on the site. Pixabay is a good site to use because the photos there have a public domain license. You need to be careful though because the site does include some images from Shutterstock at the top of each page, which we can't use.
Many Wikipedia images have a Creative Commons license, but you need to check the license carefully there, too. Sometimes it's a non-commercial one, which means that we can't use it on our articles.
Good luck with your hunt for images.
Sometimes manufacturers, service providers etc will give you permission to use photos from their website (assuming they own copyright on the photos and haven't sourced them from elsewhere). You need to email them and show them how you intend to use the photos. Usually they're happy to oblige, especially if it gives their product a plug.
Google image search has a tool that allows you to search only for CC and PD images that can be used. But makes sure you double check as it is not 100% accurate.

Is anybody using pictures from pixabay or using own images? What is better?
by Phyllis Doyle Burns 3 years ago
I have looked all over tarnation for an appropriate image to use in a hub. I cannot find even one that is in Public Domain or Creative Commons. There are a lot I could use from Bing images, but they are not free for commercial use. I found one I like very much and it would be perfect ! If I take...

I had written 35 hubs, featured 34 of them, but for the meantime, I have unpublished all of them. I have recently found out that using images from Google are not allowed, and sites like Getty and Corbis is suing a lot of bloggers over unknowingly using their pics. It is specially difficult for me...

Usually I try to use my own photos and graphics on hubs, but some photos are impractical to take, simply because the subject matter is unavailable. So I often download them from Wikimedia Commons, Pixabay or FreeDigitalPhotos. If you're good at taking photos, consider submitting them as public...

How Important is it to Credit Images on HubPages?Okay, the obviously the textbook answer is that we need to credit all our images. However, the reality is most Hubbers, even the most successful, often only source an image by linking to it, which is only technically part of the crediting. Almost...
