Where can I find free pictures for my hubs? Are there some better than others? Thanks!
I produce most of my own, but what I don't take myself usually comes from wikipedia - they have a large collection of public domain photos.
http://www.Jupiterimages.com I've been using them for years ... royalty free and you'll never ever run out of prospects. Best of luck.
The images on that site aren't free, they're royalty free. That means you have to buy each photo with an upfront payment, then you can use it as often as you like. I hope you're not just copying them off the site!!
I use Flickr - Advanced Search, then click "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use" at the bottom of the search page. I find I always get a huge selection to choose from.
Here is a good hub to check out:
http://hubpages.com/hub/15-Great-Sites- … l-Websites
http://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/by-2.0/ Heres the link for flickr CC which getitdone mentioned..bare in mind you must leave a hyperlink to any photos you use from here
I agree with wilderness it is always best to use your own photos. I believe it looks better and makes the visitor feel they are reading something more personal.
But there are some hubs where I have to use free photos. I have never used Creative Commons but will have a look from the comments here it looks a good site to use. I notice some of your hubs are about shoes and home products. If you have a digital camera it would be easy enough to take your own photos for these particular hubs.
I would suggest google Hubpages lets you use other pictures. As long as you don't copy anybody's work.
I usually just go to my web search bar, and type in 'whatever subject or image' and add the phrase, 'public domain photos' at the end.
I take all of my own product photos for my offline business and my Etsy shop, and lots of pix of my cats...but I don't have any photos I've taken of the things I would need to add to my articles, so I just search for public domain photos.
There are a lot out there. Sometimes, there is a person's name as the photographer, so even though you're allowed to use the image, it is best protocol to credit the photographer and the website from which you gleaned the photo.

All photos but one were snipped today on one of my best performing hubs. Is this a new editing policy in light of Maven? There was a time when we were encouaged to add at least 3 photo images that would enhance our content. The photos that were remove from my hub were not necessary but added...

I check out many of the new hubs as they come across my Home page. I'm interested to see how many people use their own original work, how many correctly use and credit public domain photos, and how many are outright stealing photos from the Internet.When someone posts a professional looking photo...

Hi, I'm running out of places to find photos for my articles. Is there a website that you go through to be able to use pictures for free? (And attribute them of course).

Hello all, this might seem a stupid one but I still haven't figured it out yet. What is the score with applying photos to your hub, I mean can you just scroll the web and copy any photo you like?? I'm confused.... I understand the video aspect and that's cool embedded Url?? well...
