Could some kind soul please tell me how,or where I find the copyright symbol to put after my photos on Hubpages?,-many thanks..
I can't help you, but do be aware that putting a copyright symbol under your photos won't stop them being stolen. If you put a good photo on the internet without a watermark, you can pretty much guarantee it will be stolen!
Unfortunately you're not allowed to use watermarked photos here, so the best plan is to choose photos you're prepared to lose.
If you want to make money with your photos, you would be better off somewhere like Dreamstime.
The copyright symbol is not available in the edit photo capsule, only the text capsules. You would have to put it in as (c) Joe Bloggs 2013.
Hope that helps
You can use the 'Character Map' in Windows to get a proper copyright symbol and simply 'select' it and 'paste' it in to the relevant box under your picture.
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Character Map - then go to the 6th line down, 4th symbol in, and that is the one to select. Resulting symbol is : ©
Use this in the info under the photo along with appropriate details like your name.
You are welcome. I don't normally use it for my images, but just to test it I put it under my header picture in my How to Build / Make a Fishing Lake Hub just now as part of the caption text, and it pasted into the box without any problem at all.
Perhaps I should add that when you get as far as the © symbol on the character map you need to click 'select' (so it appears in the box at the bottom of the map), then click 'copy', and then go to your hub, go to the caption box for your picture, and then right click in the box and select 'paste' from the options that appear. This will make the © appear in the box.
do you have a photo editing program? i use photoshop and there is a copyright symbol under shapes that you can layer onto your picture.
Thanks bizzarett81,got that sorted now. But grateful if you cld let me know how I find my full hubpage url adresss,thanks.
I believe if you go to your profile and look at the address bar, that should be your hubpage url

A discussion started about this on the end of another thread, but it's got buried. I was checking an early Hub today and it reminded me, because I'd used a photo from another website. At that time, I didn't understand that most photos on most websites are copyright, unless they...

Who owns the copyright to a POW id card image?I'm planning a hub about a man who was held as a POW by the Germans in WW2. When his prison camp was liberated, he went to the office and picked up his ID card, which he shows in his book. My question: does he own the copyright to that card image? I...
