    Hi I wanted to know how to get the attribution link and what name should I enter the persons name??
    Also how do I know if I'm free to use it or now. When logged out I could see one pic was free to use ... But this pic and all the other pics including the one I saw earlier got nothing on now. Where can I check it?

    Sorry but it is my first time on flickr

      Found it but it doesn't say anything just all rights reserved. I click it then general instructions appear

        "All Rights Reserved" means you are not allowed to use that picture.

        Good, I'm glad it helped.  I always just use the advanced search options.  If you scroll down to the bottom of that search page, you can check off search only creative commons images and for commercial use.  big_smile

      Thanks for the hub smile I'm following her method of linking at the end. I always thought of doing that as I read its ok to attribute anywhere on the page. But, never saw anyone doing it. This helped thanks soo much

        I hope you also noticed the bit about how to search for images you can legally use. As Greekgeek says, you can't use a photo if it says "all rights reserved".

          Yup smile I only wanted to simplify the search I'm familiar with the copyright stuff. Just that I never used Flikr before.

            Hubpages never used to have the option to link to the picture owner directly under the picture.

            Once upon a time we all had to link at the end of the page.

    I've also been told about a site called morguefile.com/

    This contains images that are free for use, including for commercial purposes. While you are asked to make an attribution to the originator when possible, the actual licence text states that attribution is not necessary.

      I search morgue first and then go to the rest smile
      Usually they don't have many pics but when you get them they're simply awesome. I also use freedigitalphotos.net

    See where the Flickr page says "all rights reserved"? Look for photos that instead say, "some rights reserved" and show a little gray equals sign icon in a circle, which is one of several icons used for creative commons photos which are licensed for you to use if you follow the photographer's wishes. In general, that means giving them credit and a Lin back. However, some photographers only permit non-commercial use of their photos, which theyi indicate with an icon that's a dollar sign with a slash through it. We cant't use those, because our pages earn money.

    So how do we find photos we can use on Flickr?

    Choose the Advanced Search option from the search box up top. Then scroll down. There should be a section for searching for Creative Commons licensed photos. Check that box and the Commercial Use checkbox, and then search away!

    Go back there if you need to make another search.
