    I can't use other peoples content because they could sue me for it. So how do you get images for your blog so you don't have to worry about copyright?

    Some people provide free images for commercial use. You can find them in Google's Image Search. While you're in there -- looking at images -- click the Search Tools button to expose the Usage Rights link. Click that link and then select "Labled for Reuse."

    How you view it in your web browser will differ, but in most browsers, you'll choose the Page Source or Source option under the View menu near the top of the window.

    Some great sources to get free Stock Photos are Morgue File, SXC.hu (although they have changed their name), and Pixabay. I wouldn't rely on googles free for use filters because sometimes the don't catch all the copyrighted images.

    Edit: Also if you're going to yank images off of tumblr you should really use a source link because people there are really serious about art/content theft.
