Hi Rene,

We aim to answer all inquiries within 24 hours but are usually much faster!

Most images on the Internet carry with them some type of copyright, so it is good to look for free images that do not have a copyright, take pictures yourself, or purchase images from a site that sells them.

That being said, the images pulled in by our Flickr Widgets are safe as they are covered under a Creative Commons license.

If you are looking for photos to use on your site, you could try a free stock photo service such as OpenPhoto. To use their photos, save the images to your desktop and use the Picture Widget to add photos to your site.

If you require some great looking, good quality pictures for your site, I suggest trying out [iStockphoto](http://www.istockphoto.com/yola-offer). These pictures can help make your site beautiful and give it that professional look.

We partner with third party vendors for a lot of our widgets and in many cases they offer both free and paid level accounts.

I hope this information is helpful.

Some sites will allow you to use their photos but you might have to provide a hyperlink back to their site. Some sites allow you to use free photos without a link back. Some sites you have to pay to use their quality photos. If you are not sure, then contact the author of the picture and ask permission.
