    Where do hubbers get pictures they put on their hubs?  It's supposed to be their own right?  But there are some whose pictures are definitely not theirs. Can we simply cite the URL of the source?

        The pictures in most of these places have watermarks, I am increasing faced with a problem of finding a picture that is suitable, for commercial reuse and not watermarked do you have any suggestions.

        Thank you for the links.  However, just like what sofs said, these have watermarks.  Based on the new flagging reasons (http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/72331), this is not acceptable.

    There are free pic sites out there.  However, as a safety precaution I tend to use my own pictures.  They are not as pretty but at least they are mine.

      Thanks for the unput.  pedrog gave me a list of sites with free photos to use.  But I agree, to be safe, use your own pix.  unfortunately I don't have much to begin with.

      I'm the same way, I always try to take my own pictures.  I think it makes the content much more original.  Most cell phone's even have cameras with pretty good quality these days to.

        Unfortunately I don't have time to take pictures for every hub I write.  Though I can reuse some pix, still it will be too impractical for me to snap pix just for my hubs

    You can use photos which the permission of the copyright owner of the photos.  Then you need to give photo credit in the manner demanded by the title owner. Else, it might amount to copyright infringement.

      That isnt greatly helpful .. we know this information the question was those sites which we had used earlier to get our pictures from have water marked pictures so were do we find the pics that comply is the real  question.

        Thanks sofs for clarifying my concern.  I'm currently searching for sites without watermarks. I came across www.freedigitalphotos.net a while back, but I have to put a link on my hub to use it.

          Thanks Jpcmc I use this site .. but you know it is kind of limiting to work with just a few pictures and compromising on quality... sad  just keep us posted if you find something else worthwhile smile

            Susan one of the Pictures I used from Photobucket caused a little tremor, I would be careful to use any pictures from them.. I don't know if my experience was uniques but I have heard a couple of others say so in the forums.

    I get most of mine from here http://sxc.hu/ or from Wikipedia...although you have to make sure the one of Wikipedia is actually copyright free.

      That is what I used to bank on but of late all the pictures there are water marked.. is there a way out ?

        If you pick the free ones they shouldn't be watermarked. There are some paid pictures on the site.

            I'm planning to subscribe to some free sites which require attribution. This way I can get more options.  But wouldn't placing the websites of the sources on my hubs be a bit promotional?
