    I want to use some stock photos on one of my sites that I haven't bought. what is the risk of get found out? I've changed the name on properties I deleted title, subject, tags etc... re-named the photos is there anything else I can do to hide my tracks? or they can still find the photo? do they put some invisible watermark?

    People have been warning others about some sort of tracking in the photo itself. I know nothing about it, but maybe someone else can let you know the risks. But from what I've read, there is a risk.

    Here is a good list of sites with free images to use on your blog/website. Probably has most of the photos in different niches to go around.
