    If google can see that I took a header image from google images is it going to affect my ranking for SEO (not image SEO, but page SEO)?

    Hmm, I'm still skeptical. Is it possible that using original images HELP SEO, even if using unoriginal ones don't hurt it?

    I doubt that. Just compress the size a lil bit from the original ones and you're good to go.
