If unable to find photos, is it advisable to link to photos that you can find?
I am writing about an endangered animal, and I am unable to find any actual photos of the animal. I can add a text capsule that says, to view this animal, click here. and then link the picture site.
My concern, is that should the site name later be used for something else, I run the risk of someone clicking and something offensive coming up. What do you think?
If you Google the animal it should come up. If it does click picture and left click mouse and click (save as) and then you will have it in your PC to uploadto your photo capsule.Not sure if this answer was what you were askiing if not sorry
the clean life - but I don't know if it is copyrighted or not. I need photos that I can legally get permission to use before putting them in my hub. It is these pictures that you mentioned that I want to link to, without placing the actual picture on my hub. I'm afraid my question was not very clear. Sorry. Thanks for the answer though.
try to find a site about endangered animals and see if there is a picture of that animal. Since the site would be about endangered animals there is no reason to assume that someone will take over the site and put on something offensive. You cannot guard against someone posting a message to the site that is offensive, but can't worry about what *might* happen in the future. Then post a link in the links capsule
Hi homesteadbound, I think your proposed solution of providing a link is a good one to avoid any copyright violations. If the link were to ever get BROKEN then HubPages would advise you of that in the "my account" section and you could quickly rectify it. However, if the link got CHANGED then yes you do run the risk of pointing a link to inaccurate information, in which case you might want to consider doing a regular check of your links. This gets to be a mammoth task when you have lots of hubs, but perhaps checking your links every 6 months would be reasonable just to make sure that they are still pointing to the image you expect. Hope this helps!
Whether you link the files directly to a site or upload from your PC, you need to ensure that you are not violating any copyright.
Unless if the picture author says it is free for commercial or non-commercial use you cannot take it just from their website or from the Google search and put in the HubPages. If you do so it is a copyright violation.
The best way is to ask them whether you can use it in your posting, get their permission and then upload or link it. In the attribution you can quote them as the original owners of the file.

When I highlight the text and click the hyperlink icon, the box pops up. I enter the URL for the link, hit save, and close the box. The text is blue in the editing box, but when I hit save, the blue and the URL disappears. I have tried almost a dozen different links. I've restarted and updated my...

Suggestion: If I want to change my profile photo when I am away from my computer, I can't do it because the only option I get is to dowload from my photos on my computer. But I already have the photo on my Hub Pages picture gallery. Why can I not download from there? Is it possible to add this...
