I think it would be very useful if HubPages somehow made it easier for Hubbers to use their AllPosters.com affiliate ID in hubs. I don't want this because I am eager to get yet more money, I'ver not earned anything from AllPosters, but because using them is a brilliant way to illustrate a hub, without worrying about copyright. They specialise in producing beautiful images on a huge variety of topics, and they positively want you to advertise these images on websites, as long as you provide a link back to their sales page.
Of course I am still using AllPosters images on my hubs, simply be downloading the image and linking it back to the sales page, I can't imagine AllPosters having a problem with that, however I feel a little bit sordid when saving the images, some of them have a watermark, I also worry weather I am doing enough to advertise the fact that these are for sale at their site, HubPages gets miffed if I put "Buy at AllPosters too often" and sends nasty sounding warnings.
On Squidoo I can add the AllPoster produced link to the product by pasting the HTML in the text box, however that does not work on HubPages.
Don't you get dinged for watermarked images? I had a YouTube video that simply had a news brand on behind the announcer and I had to remove it.
It would be a good idea - Wizzley has an agreement with AllPosters (similar to the eBay and Amazon capsules on HP) and it would be a win-win for everyone, because it would reduce the number of people using stolen images.
If you're just putting the AllPosters link in "Source", that's not enough to satisfy AllPosters' requirements. You need to add a caption to let the reader know the image is for sale. You can mix it up, e.g. "Buy this poster at AllPosters", "Buy this image", This image available from AllPosters", "Get this framed at AllPosters" etc. Hopefully that will avoid HubPages' nasty warnings.
The other thing you could do - if you have a Hub where all the images are from AllPosters - is to create a right-floated, highlighted text box with the message, "All the images in this article are available as posters or framed artwork at AllPosters.com yadda yadda...."
If they have a watermark, they're not allowed on HubPages. They may not be noticed at first, but eventually they will be noticed my a moderator and any Hubs showing watermarked images will be unpublished. If a moderator notices this discussion, it may happen sooner than you think!

I realize that the Allposters html for images will not work on Hubpages but are we allowed to put in the image with a live link under it so we are still able to use this program? Many of the large posters provide a very decorative touch to the layout of a page and Allposters does pay a very high...

I am new to Hub Pages and would like to know if you can use images from Allposters in your hubs. They have an affiliate program and give an HTML code to the image. However, the photo capsule on HubPages does not seem to accept HTML code. I have searched for hubs/questions on this...

I like to use AllPosters.com for images because 1) they have gorgeous images and 2) I can earn income if someone buys a print. On HubPages, however, I am limited to only two links to a single domain and I must use a link (as an affiliate) to be able to use an image.So my suggestion is that...

Does anyone know if we're allowed to post photos from Allposter affiliates? They have some great photos to use on your sites, some with clicks to their site?

I'm new here at HUB and every one of my hubs has warnings and I've been told that I will be terminated soon because everything I post is substandard. I have read all the Terms. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and since I'm "punished" and none of them can be viewed, I...

I posted a photo hub and had all positive responses to a photo that I took with my cellphone. The image is clear and has my own 'copyright' mark on the picture. I am shocked that someone would actually say this image is 'not up to standard' as it has since been featured on other sites and repined...
