    Please list the best website for photos for your hubs.

    Photos bring some hubs to life. Just taking a photo from a search engine and using it in your hub is not allowed here on hub pages. The rules say that any photo you use in your hubs that does not have a creative commons licence is breaking the rules unless the photo belongs to you. 
    Please list any good websites or sources of photos you know that are available to hubbers. Usually photos that have a creative commons license. List good websites for photos for hubbers here..

    I know that is not the question and I am drifting away somehow, but what I would recommend the most is to take your own photos. Nothing better than using your own work, otherwise anybody could write something and publish! Using images of your own gives authenticity to your hubs and gives you status as a writer. This is particularly true when writing about DIY, travel and recipe hubs, publishing with online photos would be an absolute scam in my humble opinion.

      Claudia Great Answer. But some of my hubs are based on things many miles away. It would be hard to get all of my own photos. But yes great suggestion to not just write my own hubs but to use my own photos too.

      It is always best to take our own photos as Phoenix states: it is 100% yours and shows you are creative.

    I'm a photographer, and I always try to use my own photos for the contents I create. However, I need others pictures sometimes.
    These are the sites I trust.
    PS: However, you have to know the proper way of attributing pictures with creative common science.
