    I post other peoples images on my account but I make sure I credit them every time I do so, that way 99.99% of the time people don't care if you use their photo as you've basically given them a free shoutout. I only do this because my account is based around graphics work and sharing other peoples work to inspire others.

    If you mention the source of the photo you can use them, also put a DMCA policy that the owner of the photo can contact you to take down the photo.

    Lol, all i do is copy others work.
    Never recieved a single complaint. I do tag them in the picture, no need to mention them.

    A lot of 'brands' use others content for their Instagram and don't credit it.
