I am looking for for free photos I can use on my hubs. Can anyone point me to sites that offer photos for blogs.
Just search in Google. Look for photos that don't have a copyright. If they have a copyright and you absolutely MUST use them for your hub, ask the owner of the photo if you can use them.
Just be aware that you have to use the Advanced Search on Google and apply a filter.
Even then, the results are unreliable and Google states that it's up to you to check the copyright. Bear in mind that ALL images on the internet are copyright UNLESS you can find a statement that specifically says otherwise.
I use the Advanced Search in Flickr and tick "for commercial use" and "Creative Commons". That search is reliable. All you have to do then is thank the photographer in your Hub, and include a hyperlink to their photostream.

I had written 35 hubs, featured 34 of them, but for the meantime, I have unpublished all of them.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...

Has anyone ever run into copyright issues using images from photobucket? I like the selection at photobucket, but it seems like people post a lot of photos they probably do not own. I like using photobucket, but there's this thought in the back of my mind wondering if I've stolen someone's photo...

I'm curious where you all go to get photos. I used istockphoto.com sometimes and that can get pricey if there's nothing suitable in the half-price bin.For some subjects, I could use my own. For others, it's best to get stock.What good ideas do you have?
