I have had a hub unpublished because I have used two photos from www.freefoto.com. In their terms it says I can use the photos as long as I give a link back, which I did. They are watermarked freefoto.com, and underneath I have from www.freefoto.com.
Most of my pictures are from free sources. This one just happens to be a very good source. It is hard to find decent free photos and graphics to use.
I did ask them a question about it, but is any one else having problems using photos from a free source also? Do I need to put their terms and conditions in the photo description saying I have can use their photos?
Good pictures are getting hard to find. Some of mine are from .gov sites and they seem to be OK. I have one which shows a mark right in the middle of the picture, so far hub pages hasn't said anything. The picture is closely related to what the hub is about. Hours of searching hasn't produced anything close to that picture so for now it stays, until I get told to take it down.
As far as I know the best place to find freeware pictures is Microsoft office 2007. I think most of mine are from there.
I had an idea something like this was coming so I bought a new digital camera. None of the pictures I have taken are on hubs yet but I plan on changing out anything I have a question in my mind about soon. I noticed too that freeware pictures are getting harder to find and it often takes longer to find a suitable picture than it does to write several hubs.
Yes, I did have three of my hubs being pulled down for the same reason. No, listing those conditions may not help, I had asked the same questions, but the answer was watermarked pictures are not allowed.
I am finding it increasing difficult to find pictures that are good and are not water marked, I seem to spend more time getting pictures than writing Hubs. I hope we do find a good source to get good pictures that are not watermarked.
I'll just pull the two pictures then. It won't look as good, but unless I stumble on something else worthy to put there, it will have to look a little bare.
So far that is the only hub they pulled. It is the same hub I had a warning for another reason. I was told it was a pre-warning, and that I would be ok. It looked informative, and well put together.
I'll see how it goes from here.
Try www.freedigitalphotos.net read the guidelines and the pics are not watermarked, you can also join for free. They don't have a bad selection but it is just a suggestion. I am working on hubs too.

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added or deleted.It's very frustrating. Yesterday I was told my hub on Zeus, the...

I am working on a hub with several pictures - they are imported OK - but only the captions are showing not the picture themselves unless I display them full width?

Some of my photos are missing in my hub. I see them when I edit but they are gone when I save. Above where it says pictures there is a marked out going through them. Strange they are my photos so I don't know what is going on. Has anyone else had this problem?

Whitney05 always seems to include great photos in her hubs, and I'm wondering if she has some tips on finding photos, especially dog photos that are free to use. Anyone else who has tips for such free photos, would be appreciated for their advice.Thanks much.
