I'd say always ask the author/ site if you are not sure. Even if it feels uncomfortable, it's better to ask beforehand than having troubles later.

For non-commercial use, if nothing is stated, crediting the author can be a nice move, however it won't save you from any future claims or copyright infringements. For commercial use I'd never use images with vague usability.


I'd say it is better to use images that are surely free to use, in this way no surprises will hit you later. Or, if you can afford, buy the license.

Yes, I think in most cases they will let you be after you deleted the copyrighted image. I mean, if you didn't cause too much financial loss they will not step into a lawsuit. It would cost them more money to sue a poor individual than what they could earn from it. It is just risky if you are super famous, like Google or Facebook or something. Smile

Ethically it is another question. You wouldn't like your images used without $ or credits either. Smile 



If you found a site that offers an image without any obligation, then use it. You can refer to it later if someone complains. Smile
