Need advice on using photos of original artwork.
I would like to publish a hub about folk art, and I'd like to include several photos. All photos are my own, myself being the photographer, and all art objects are either owned by me or I had verbal permission to photograph them. What are the HP rules governing such things?
I could be wrong, but as long as they're your original photos there shouldn't be any problem with using them. You can place your name in the "source" box because you're the photographer and list the name of the artist in the caption so people know who created the art.
You can use any images that you have permission to, if it is a photo of someone else's work you should attribute the artist.
I have used a few of my own digital art pieces in my hubs but I've not done much with them.
Another tip to help you get views is to open the properties on your images, name them and give them tags. Do all this on your PC before uploading them to HP. Give them a 5 star rating to and past your article into the comments box on the Photo properties page. All this helps with SEO.

I created a hub which uses lots of pictures from flickr. If one of the photographers remains on flickr but pulls the picture (I assume that is what happened) leaving me with a broken link. Can I continue to use the picture?
