I would like feedback to my article: 12 Fishes in the Philippines - Most Beautiful in the World
https://hubpages.com/education/12-Most- … hilippines
Have you permission to reproduce the photos? You may have found them on Instagram, but that doesn't mean that person had permission to post them either. You have to cite the original source and the license.
More info on image use here:
https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … -image-use
How did you get your photos? Do you buy them? Do you ask the owner to use them? How do you contact the owner? How do you convince the owner to use her/his photo? What is the best sentence or statement to convince them to use freely their photos? How do you talk and negotiate? How to know his/her real name if she/he using a screen name and the license type? Thank you.
Have you read the article I linked to?
HubPages is a commercial site and you, potentially, are going to earn from the use of those images. Therefore, if you take them without permission you could face a demand for payment for unauthorised use.
I use images from Pixabay, Unsplash, Wikimedia, and my own photos.
You can usually contact a website owner through their contact button, bearing in mind that they themselves may have posted the photos illegally. What you have to do is establish what license they carry.
https://teacherchallenge.edublogs.org/s … e-commons/
As a content creator it is your duty to know and understand the rules.
Do Pixabay, Unsplash, and Wikimedia a hundred percent free to use? Can use legally them even there's no permission from the owner?
Generally, yes, because the photographer has placed the images on the site for the public to use. You need to be careful with Wikipedia, though. The site sometimes shows photos from Flickr and says that they have a Creative Commons commercial license, which is suitable for use on HubPages. When I check the images on Flickr, however, I quite often find that the photographer has changed the license to "All rights reserved."
It's always a good idea to credit the person who has shared their work for free. You will see their details when you download from Pixabay or Unsplash.
As Alicia says, you have to double check Wikimedia.
The problem with articles like your fish one is that you have built it around resources (photos) that are not yours. From now on, always check that you have those resources in place before you go to all the trouble of writing the article.
I agreed with all the others. You can capture pictures of the fish if you were able to catch them, and use the images in your article.
I was going to say the same thing as theraggededge. In addition, the first banded pipefish photo is watermarked.
Okay. Thank you all for your feedback. I have learned from you. I will unpublished all of my works because all photos that I use to them have no permission. I hope I will be a great author like you and give also feedback and advice for the future new Hubpages authors. God bless and good night. Salamat!
1. What if I have already sent an article at the owlocation? One of my articles has been already moved to that site. I am unable to edit it, photos on that article also have no permission to use from the owner.
2. How to know which photos are free at Wikimedia? How to determine if the photos are from flickers and other sites?
3. How to identify the real owner of the photos at Wikimedia? I have seen photos with the same images at the sites, but they are uploaded by different people.
Of course you can edit it.
Images on Wikimedia have details of their license. Just click on them and you should see it. The accreditation will be there.
On Flickr, you can choose to filter the search results by license. Or you can use Compfight. Just type in a subject you are looking for, then tick the filter box on the left. Be careful of the very top and bottom images - they are paid for.
Are you saying that an article you wrote with images like this has already been moved to Owlcation? That is very surprising, as HP editors would not usually move an article like that. It can happen, as we are all human, but normally they would not even move it to a network site.
Yes, in fact, I think the editor viewed the article thrice.
1. When I submitted it to the owlocation, it has been moved to the site.
2. When I tried to add a link, however, the editor rejected it but I think he has seen it because he inboxed me.
3. When I edited something, the HP editors approved it, he inboxed me again.
Don't worry it's just a single article and I will unpublished it. I want my articles to be legal and have no issues
I have contacted a person who owns a Facebook page, the page is all about the mythical creatures from the Philippines. I have viewed all of the photos on the page, and it seems like he owns them, because the styles he used is the same. Then, I have contacted and asked the page's owner to sketch me a creature. He replied to me with what I've asked for. However, I saw the sketch on Google, he just added colors. In your opinion, does he really own the sketch?
Eric, I have no idea.
You have to write about topics that you can easily find legal photos for... or take the photos/draw images yourself.
Unless you are a professional photographer or know one, it's best to stay away from photographic topics because you are going to keep having this problem. Have you thought about looking for a professional wildlife photographer in your locality? I did an article on my local area once and found some stunning photos on Flickr - I emailed the guy and he was very happy to let me use them for free.
No, this article has not been moved to Owlcation. It is still on HubPages. (Or if it was moved to Owlcation, it is now back on HubPages.)
Don't unpublish it. As DrMark says, if you are getting some traffic from search engines then it's worth hanging on. What did the HP editor inbox you about? Did he give you the reason why the article could not remain on (or be moved to) Owlcation?
We were talking about his first article, which can be seen on his profile page. (It has a lot of nice images but no sources.) It is still on Owlcation.
These are their emails to me, the 1st and 3rd email. I have already deleted thier 2nd email that tells rejection when I added a link to the article.
It is clear that the article is on owlocation
Sorry Eric, I got confused. I thought the comments in this thread related to your fish article, but I can see now that they were talking about your insect article. Please ignore my earlier post.
I recalled making comments on the '10 Most Beautiful Fishes.' Not on insects.
The Fish article is still on Hubpages, however, the insect's article has moved to the owlocation. The photos in the insect's art. are uncited and have no permission to use, that's my problem.
Eric, you can edit it and change the photos. Look what it says in the third email you got, "We recommend that authors update and improve their articles..."
Not just once. Until the article is featured. Or you unpublish it.
Miebakagh - the article in question is on Owlcation. I don't understand what you mean.
Articles on the network sites, or on HubPages, can be edited at any time. The only time you can't edit is after they have been submitted to a network site and are caught in the editorial process.
I have an article entitled "Top 10 Most Beautiful Insects in the World", the article has been submitted and moved to the owlocation. The photos on that article are not cited and have no permission to use. I and Miebagkagh are not talking to the "12 Fishes..." article, we are referring to the "Top 10 Insects", and I'm unable to edit it.
We are baffled and perplexed how does that happen.

Bev, eric said he still had the fish article on hubpages. I refer to that, not the insects story that is move to a niche site. Thanks.
I know, but we are talking about editing the insect article.
This is what Eric said:
"The Fish article is still on Hubpages, however, the insect's article has moved to the owlocation. The photos in the insect's art. are uncited and have no permission to use, that's my problem."
Click on Chronological at the top of the page and you will be able to read the thread in order.
Bev, I'm not interested in the insect article nor the phote. I was a little confused as my post about 6 hours ago implies.
Bev, I'm not interested about the inseet article, nor the photo. My post 6 hours ago implies that. Thanks again.
I'm sorry Miebakagh, I thought you are also referring to the insect's articles. The conversation has mixed up. I'm just new in Hubpages and I'm still at the stage of learning how to use this site. Apologies.
I notice that you do not put the URL of your photo sources, just the domain or name of the websites. Can I do it? ....or I'm just unable to see them?
Can I use sketches/ photos with descriptions or written words on it just like this?
Exactly the same rules apply, Eric.
If it's yours - yes.
If you have permission to use the whole image - yes.
If it has a Creative Commons commercial use license - yes.
If it is in the Public Domain - yes.
If none of those apply - no.
Most of the owners of the photos that I used in the PH fish article permitted me to use their photos. All I need to do is citing.
However, some of them don't want to mention their names in the article. They just want to put the name of their Instagram account instead of their real name. Can I substitute the owner's name to their account?
1. How to determine the license type of a photo without details?
2. In which license type should photos from Instagram (with permission to use) belong, is it in Creative Commons? Thank you.
The creator of a photo is the person who must assign a license to the photograph. The person using the image can't do this.
I sometimes use photos that my sister took. I write her name as the source and then write "used with permission" in brackets (but without the quotation marks) after her name. I don't mention a license because she hasn't chosen one. You could do the same with the Instagram photos after writing the name of the photographer or their account according to their wishes.
The emails in which the Instagram users told you that they took the photos and in which they gave you permission to use the images are important. You should make sure that you keep them.
What to do if photos on Wikimedia have no owner's name? Those pictures are what I need on Fish article.
Which photo is it? Just tell me the name of it.
There are some photos from Wikimedia don't have the owner's name, just the license type, they have incomplete information. I would like to delete those unpermitted photos from my Fish article and change it to the photos from Wikimedia, however, they have no author's name.
The license is all you need. As long as it is one of the permitted licenses, you'll be fine.
Images have to have **one** of the following:
The correct license.
Permission from the owner.
If it has a correct license and a URL you can link to (where the license is cited), you can use it.
All you need to do is caption the photo, add the license, link back to the original wiki image.
It looks like you're using a mobile device. The photographer's name shows up on my iPad and my Windows laptop. Rickard Zerpe took the photo. If you have access to a tablet or a computer, it might be helpful to use it when you want to find photo sources.
Yes, I am using a mobile. I left my laptop in the apartment where I stay. As a teacher, it has lots of files and records of the school, I thought if I would bring it, children at my parent's house would delete or break it. And also, it is in another city and no one is allowed to go to another city, due to quarantine. I never thought that I will use it, and discover Hubpages because my parents have no internet connection at their house. I am only connecting to the wifi of their neighbor that's why I have access to the internet.
That must be difficult. It's good that you do have Internet access, though.`
It is much welcomed to have free access to the internet.
Yes, it is. I always appreciate the free Internet access in my community.
Yes, it's free, however, the internet speed is very slow, their house is 10 meters away. :-D:- D
Next month, I will go to install my own internet connection at my parent's house. I am unable to teach this year, due to the virus. There are more than 50,000 teachers in the Philippines, including me, who can't teach this year. We will wait until June next year, that's why we are looking for home-based jobs to earn.
I'd to feedback if my fish article is already Okay. Thank you.

Hey Eric, it's looking great!
Some slight edits:
Remove the thumbnail image on the Elegant Firefish. There's only one image so the thumbnail is unnecessary.
I'm starting at the bottom and working upwards.
"It is known to its pure love." Should be 'for its pure love'.
"This kind of pipefish reminds me of the beautiful African equines" should be 'equine' singular.
Write numbers under ten in full. "It can change its color to 5 coloration to mimic other species" would be better as 'It is capable of five color changes to mimic other species.'
"gymnasts ribbon" missing apostrophe, 'gymnast's ribbon'
That's about all I can manage now. I think you could italicise the scientific names of the fish.
You worked really hard on this one despite all the setbacks.

I don't like and I am not happy about the way how editors edited my articles when I submitted it to the owlocation.They added irritating photos from Wikimedia which are blurred, and focus only on the head of the fishes instead of the whole body. They also get photos from different websites, I...

Where can I find a decent source of royalty free images?I have been searching for images to insert in a book that I'm currently writing but cannot find anything. I know of photo bucket but not sure if that license will cover my needs.
