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.
I follow the guidelines set forth in this instructional hub. I think the way it is presented covers what you have asked under the sub-title "What Correct Image Attribution Looks Like"
Thanks for the link Dale. I did read this before but it does not answer my question which is - I'm using images from Wikimedia commons that have either a CC license attached to them for : one - commercial use or two - a public domain image.
However even within these limitations and licenses some images require that a full copy of the GFDL be attached when using these specific images.
It is these images whose mode of incorporation of their GFDL license is what I'm asking about.
I found that just a waste of time, that's why I used morguefules and flickr. But, now I found pixabay and I guess it's the best - no need of attribution at all.
Had not heard of Pixabay. I shall have to check that out. Thanks.
Your welcome I found it to be the best and I use it for all articles I publish online now.
Thank you, lobobrandon! I didn't know about either Pixabay or Morguefile.
Thanks Lobo. I'll check this one.

Using Images In Hubs?Are you required to use images in Hubs in order for them to be considered good or featured? I'm not looking to do the bare minimum or anything but for me I feel like there could be one or two topics or hubs where you don't *really* need to use a good number of images. Anyways,...

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative commons. I see a lot of other hubbers that do not cite their images correctly and...

I have seen various hubs that use images other than their own, CC licensed, or public domain. They are very pretty and they get to use the exact image to get their point across. When I first joined hubpages, I read that part of making a quality hub was to properly attribute images. Does just copy...

Does anyone know anything about using photos on Wikimedia Commons that are listed as OTRS? On the photo page it says to confirm permission by leaving a note on the OTRS noticeboard. But when you go to the noticeboard, under Frequently Asked Questions it says "Please don't post requests for...
