I just did my 2nd Hub and used a picture from Flickr. I was wondering if someone could look at it and see if the info under the photo is what's required. I wasn't sure how to enter it, so where it said Source, I put in Flickr and then under that I put the picture URL . But when I looked at it it just said Flickr under the picture. I wasn't sure if this was enough as the photographer wasn't mentioned. So I put the URL in both boxes and got what's currently under the picture. It's titled "The Cheaper, Healthier Way to Cook for One" by Catgypsy. I'm not trying to get everyone to read it, honestly, I'm just so new to this and wasnt to know if what I did was right!
If you can provide the URL for the page you got the photo from, I can double-check what the license information says. Looking at the hub doesn't really help in that regard, does it? Then I'd have to do an Internet search for the picture, so if you could help identify the source instead, that will be much easier.
I hope this is what you're looking for:
: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sa_ku_ra/1 … hotostream
I went back to the page I got the picture from and this is what I got:
OK. I checked it out, and while it says that you must give attribution, she (the owner of the image) does not specify what attribution you must give.
In the field for attribution, write: "sa_ku_ra/ (Flickr)" (without the quote-marks);
In the field for URL, simply paste in the link that you gave me. If it works, fine; if not, never mind.

I have trouble when I find a picture to use on Flickr. I see all the symbols and can tell if they need to be attributed or not. But when I try to copy the picture, sometimes I can't. I see a line on other people's hubs...

I see Hubs where beautiful photos are used and are from Pinterest. The photos are usually credited as being from Pins. Are we allowed to use those photos??

It's easy to give credit for a single image/photo. But what if a hubber makes a collage of 2 or more photos? It becomes a little tricky to properly attribute each of the respective owners of the different photos in your...

Every time I upload a pic and read the message that the pic link counts in my hub links I get the impression that my hubs could get penalized. I went through the learning Center and the FAQ and I did a few searches...
