    Yes you should. It's better if you have a friend to lend his/her photos or you may buy from a photo selling websites for just $1 there are lots of it

    Google has in the search settings the possibility to search only for "images of free usage rights". Should i just pick these for my food blog so there wont be any problems?

    Sucks that i have to change all the previous pictures.. of course a lot better than the copyright-free ones.

    Depends on what you are planning to do with the food blog. For instance, you can not put AdSense there with other people's pictures in it. But I'm sure there are other monetizing methods that aren't as strict.

    If you have the blog only for entertaining purposes, chances that someone will file you with a DMCA are very slim. So I would say, steal away!

    Its for informational purposes and not for entertaining. Maybe i just pick the non-copyright ones to be sure..
