    I have been viewing some great demo themes for wordpress, and I am finding many pictures don't show up watermarked in Google Reverse Image search. Has anyone ever snatched stock photos from demo themes to use?

    I doubt theme owners are finding licensed pictures for their demo themes...

    I look at the "one-click install demo" themes where the intention is for you to use the demo content..

    This sounds like good idea if photographs are twisted and made to trick simple minded Google in to thinking such image are unique.

    The theme creators are most likely using license-bought photos or DMCA free ones. Just my two cents.

    They purchase the pics from stock photo sites. I asked a couple of them and they all say the same thing.
