    Hello
    I want to make website with full of images legally without any copyright complaints.
    These include both adult and not adult images.
    I think it is not allowed to copy images legally from other sites. I can get penalties and copyright complaints.
    So my question is where do you get images from to publish them on your sites and sharing on social media sites too

    There are plenty of websites around for non adult images (eg. pixabay)
    Don't know where to get adult images from, though.

    Google images is a great place, as above.
    Also Pixabay is another great place.

    Thank you yes i know already pixabay for non adult images but what about adult images?
    This is not a good way to use images as we dont have any right to use. google take no responsibility of the image under that section.If i get any complaint from anyone google will give an excuse( they are just showing images) and ignore it. I have to give huge penalty in terms of money

    Can't you just register with an affiliate program of a porn site. Iirc you get a shit ton of "promo" material and content. That's how I build TGP and CJ pages back in the days.

    ?

    That's not how I read the situation. If you do a filter for all images and then "images labelled for reuse" you'll notice 99% will be filtered out.

    I first learned about this method on one of the many (did I say "many"?) threads about this on BHW. There's many people using those images and I doubt they'll come knocking at your virtual door first.

    Free label images that don't need attribution, and make a membership page for the photographers to list their copyright protected original work as the portfolios, you won't get any issues at all.

    .. if you want photos that don't appear on 100s other sites - check out small cc0 (public domain) stock sites.. for example, artforweb.co.uk
