    I've always been curious about this & have wondered if this can harm a sites rankings.

    I have a local site. And on the top of my home page, I have a main area thats full of
    pictures. Its a main graphic, a social proof bar, then a table with 3 services.

    Well, I want to use these main images on all my pages, then in the article section
    underneath each page will have its own unique textual content, along with 1 or 2
    unique images that are relevant to the content in the article.

    I've been doing this on all my sites, and recently one of my local sites was penalized,
    although there are a thousand other reasons why it could have happened. I used
    a lot of spun articles on that site, so I'm more likely to think the articles were the
    cause for the penalty (I didn't get any messages or anything in WMT).

    Anyway, on this new site, I want to do the same format, but this time I won't be
    spinning any articles.

    But is it safe to use these 5 main images above the fold, on every page?

    Here is an example of what I'm talking about:

    The images aren't the problem, it's the spun articles. You can continue using the same images just start posting unique content and you should have nothing to worry about.

    Also, here's a tip:

    Never share your Site or URL publicly.

    Thanks bro, I just removed the pics. I was paranoid before I posted them but I figured I might
    get help a little quicker.

    Either way, thats all the help I really need so I appreciate it!

    No way you would be penalized for this.

    You were penalized for the spun content,or linkbuilding or whatever else you were doing.

    You are not going to get penalized for the pictures but you can for the spun content. Always use fresh and unique articles.
