Posting Photos Into My Hubs?
I am becoming a bit scared about all of this legal photo talk. I can never find any decent photos on Flickr that haven't been monetized or have rights reserved or what not. Where do you guys get your photos from? Do you just take them yourself most of the time? I have been finding photos from google images but I feel like that is risky too. Maybe I should just avoid photos all together...
Filter Flickr search by Creative commons and Allowed for Commercial use and you will see only the images that are relatively safe to use.
ALWAYS attribute with link to the author and it is good practice to leave a message under the original picture - where you used it and for what article.
(Sometimes people will come to read your article, just because you used a picture they like, or they made.)
I do not know if you will object to a photo taken by you in my Blog and say it was your photo.If you object I will remove.
I use RGB Photos, Morgue, Free digital photos. I try to take a few, probably not the best. I think it is important to have photos as it breaks up the text. It will keep people reading, though it doesn't get them there. Still important is good content which we all strive for.
I mostly use photos that I have taken myself. I'm still new and I don't quite understand all of the rules and I don't want to get in trouble when I've been here such a shot period of time. Overtime, I'm sure I'll understand the rules better and be a little less tense, but for now, I feel it's better to play it safe.
It is so easy to take your own with a digital camera. I also found freestockphotos.com. It was easy to deal with.

Regarding the latest newsletter about incorrectly crediting images, is it suggested that we take down all images that are not copyrighted or cites "google images" or "microsoft images." Should we, who are guilty, expect a violation email soon? Or worse, get idled?

Where do you get free photos for your hubs?Is it true that you need a model release if someone's face is in the picture. How about posting a pic of a celebrity? If I'm doing a product review can I post a picture of the product? What about logos in your pictures?

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 or deleted.It's very frustrating. Yesterday I was told my hub on Zeus, the...

We've been talking about leading photos in the forums and while it's not just about having a leading photo, it's about having a really great leading photo. We recommend this because we see these photos get shared a disproportionately number of times higher.The quote of the day "People...

What is the best way to make legally clear my copyright restrictions on use of my text or photos?I'd like to put a message in my hubs re-copyright. We all have different attitudes on copyright. My view is that I don't mind people quoting a few sentences from my hubs in their work, and I don't mind...

I see Hubs where beautiful photos are used and are from Pinterest. The photos are usually credited as being from Pins. Are we allowed to use those photos??
