I was wondering if there is any way to tell whether or not an image is watermarked, apart from checking the corner of the picture for the little symbol.
My eyesight is too weak to see it, and I've recently been using watermarked pictures by accident because of it.
I use a text-to-speech programme, and was hoping someone would know of an alternitive way of checking for watermarks.
Try using images from wikimedia commons or other public domain sites. These images are intended for public use and are not watermarked (be sure to give proper credit to the image source, though).
Vendetta: some worry-free photo URLs for you:
Beware of Flickr.com, by the way. People think everything on Flickr is free to use, when in fact, it is not. You want to make sure you look at the license icons at the right side of each page.
Make sure your read the Learning Center's policies on proper image attribution, too. This will keep your hubs from being flagged. The specific hub that talks about images is this one:
Best of luck!

Just wondering, is it necessary to mention source link while using photos from search engines. And, if I do will it be beneficial for my hub or not?

Have you ever noticed that you spend more time allocating pictures and images for your hubs than you do actually writing it?

I find that some images need a full copy of the GFDL to be attached to the image being used.I would like to know from hubbers how this is done.

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...
