    Personally i scrape photos from google,tumblr ect. I currently want to monetize one profile that has really good engagement and don't want to come across to any future copyright issues. What would be the best way to post photos legally??

    Give credit to the original owner/photographer. Most of the time they won't mind, they just don't want users who repost their images to claim them as their own.

    as just said by fellow Blackhatter give credit and maybe a link to be safe, or else don't use images like that. I use pixabay.com for mine as they are safe

    In one of the niches I'm in, I just scrape my competitors images/videos and post it in mine.

    I don't include any credit because I add a slight variation to it. These images/videos are found everywhere so I don't have any problems with people reporting my account for copyright issues. It has less than 100k followers btw.

    Unless you give credit to the owner of the photos, even if you have tweaked them, you will end up encountering copyright issues sooner or later.
