    Can anyone tell me if its ok? I know there's copyright issues and w/e but in general is this a safe practice? From my understanding its ok until the owner contacts you to take the pic down.

    They could report you to Instagram but other than that there's not much more they can do. I have plenty of accounts with plenty of followers and not one of the pics were taken by me.

    On my biggest account I ask the people on DM, if it's OK to upload their pictures. On my other accounts I upload them without permissions.

    Even if it's from Instagram it is fine as long as you give credits to the photographer or if you find the photo from a small page and you know it's not theirs just simply write - All credits go to the photographer.

    If you have written that there's no way that you will be in trouble, since you haven't claimed ownership. I have written in my bio also - All credits go to the photographers/owners. ;)

    Always contact them beforehand and give proper credits.

    yea just leave ur credits on each pic or if its a a whole account made for taking pics off people then keep on your bio

    " credits go to owner" or " DM me for removal" etc cus some peeps get pissed and just report and that just raises flags for you
