      UnnamedHarald, correct, they need to be allowed for commercial use. They use symbols on sites such as Flickr. If you see a dollar sign with a slash through it - you cannot use it on HubPages or income earning site.

      ITcoach, thank you for that. Flickr has some amazing photos. I personally have a hard time finding hub photos there though. I prefer freedigitalphoto.net or I take my own. I have come across several other site friendly sites. I hope to update the current hub list soon.

      missolive have the awesome creativity. She can take on any of the topic well.

      Flickr photo sharing is a good opportunity to find very high pixel photos. I could not find most of the relevant photos from other websites like flickr.

      Nice hub, missolive. I'm sure this has been talked about elsewhere, but I've never seen it: I assume when we use images they must be available for commercial use or Public Domain (or get individual permission for commercial use). Can you verify this? Thanks.

      Since I first read this hub, I started using flickr and freedigital photos. They have such great variety. On flickr you have to be sure that the photos you use are allowed but the supply is great. Sxc.hu is really good too. Thanks for the great tips. I will be visiting the other sites to check out their photos soon, as well.

      I have chosen this hub as one of my top 10 hubs in my tribute for my 100 followers. I thought a picture is worth so much. It was so hard finding free photos on the net that is worth using. These websites are all awesome. Thank you.

      Excellent! I bookmarked a few of those. I have been using flickr so far, and that seems to be working pretty well.

      Duschess OBlunt - Thank you very much - I appreciate that! Thank you for your votes. It is always a worry that someone will misuse our photos or text - isn't it? Best wishes on your endeavors. I've been slowly cleaning up my past hubs as well. :)

      Judy Razon - You are quite welcome. I enjoy creating resources for myself and others. Happy to share.

      As usual missolive - excellent references and information. I have to bookmark this as I'm sure I'll need those resources in the future. I know some of my earlier hubs need to be fixed as I address some of the issues you bring up, and as soon as time permits, I'll be making the necessary changes.

      I use my own pictures now as much as possible, but I am always worried they will be used incorrectly by others.

      I say that because I have been guilty of doing so in the past. It's articles like this that made me realize my mistake.

      Voted up and very useful!

      dabasoru Htr - the dividers are used the same way as any photo. I simply upload them to a photo capsule.

      Ok back here again. How do you use the text breakers? I mean the image (stick) you place between each text and photo capsules...
