    Are you allowed to post photo's that others have taken about the subject line of your own hub. Meaning my hub is about home repair and remodeling and I need photo's of work in progress but have none of my own. Am I allowed to find other photo's on whatever subject I am discussing and publish them on my hub, only for instructional purposes.

    Please feel free to use the free photos I have posted here at hubpages if any of them suits you. You will be able to find them by searching the site. smile

    Best Regards

    Hit "advanced search", select "commercial use (with attribution)", and make sure you take note of the name of the person to whom to attribute the photo.

    I do it quite simply by saving the image as "imagename by photographername.jpg", so that I can use the photo again later without having to go and look up the name of the photographer.

    ...and just to clarify, you then have to include the photographer's name, and a link to their Photostream, in your article.

    There are lots of photos on Wikipedia that you can use because they are covered by Creative Commons License. Most photos on Wikipedia come under this heading, and I think its safe to assume they are CC pictures, unless it says differently on them.

      You should still attribute them if you do use images from Wikipedia.
