    They'll usually just ask you to take them down, and if they do you should to avoid any more trouble. It's stealing photos from stock sites like shutterstock that you shouldn't do, you can get heavily fined for that.

    Don't worry about it, they won't just sue you for that, the most "dangerous" thing they will do is - they will ask yo uto remove the image and if you do that you are totally ok and safe

    Almost no chance of getting into real trouble, maybe a .000000001% chance they will see the image and tell you to take it down but that's about it. People have been using copyrighted images since the dawn of time.

    They usually send an email that you have a copyrighted content and they ask you to take it down. If you don't comply, they will most likely sue you. The possibility that someone stumbles upon ur blog on which u have a picture which belongs to them is really small. Furthermore it can be safe to just use any image. Now there is the new feature of searching by image on Google which will make things harder for u. However I would like to ask you, who cares? Unless you are not making thousands or millions of dollars out of that single picture it doesn't matter.
