To update you on copyright law, read below.
Avoid copying or otherwise using images you find on web pages without permission of the copyright owner.
These and other uses violate Federal copyright law. The copyright owner can sue infringers for damages (the owner's lost profit), profits (any profit the infringer made), statutory damages (up to $10,000 and as much as $50,000 for willful infringement), and attorney's fees and costs. They can get injunctive relief, and infringing copies and the equipment used to produce them can be impounded and destroyed. (Ie. computers, printers, etc)
It is also a criminal act to violate Federal copyright law (see 17 U.S.C.A.§ 506). It may qualify as a Federal misdemeanor (with a fine as much as $10,000 or imprisonment for up to one year.) Not including what you will be sued for.
Don't Copy, Modify or Display Images You Find The Copyright act gives the copyright owner (photographer) the exclusive right to reproduce or modify their work, and to exclude others from doing so. Copying includes copying or saving their image to your hard drive, or copying to other mediums, like scanning a photo from a book and turning it into a JPEG file.
Modifying a work, say by cropping, coloring, distorting, enlarging, etc. is not a way around this law. Creating a derivative work "or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed or adapted" is an infringement.
If you take a copyrighted image without permission, and put it on a web page, web site, print on a photo etc... you are violating the exclusive right of the copyright owner to display his work. (See 17 U.S.C.A. § 106).
