    You can take the pictures from gettyimages but you are not allowed to use celebrity images for any commercial use. They are sometime perfect for your Blog when there are some sort of trending news about them and you want to show them to your audiences.

    I normally use Pixabay, they have really decent images but of course you don't get quite as much choice as you would from a paid source such as istockphoto.

    Another option is to go on Google image search and then set the filters only to display images "labelled for reuse". That also works quite well.

    There are many online image sites that can make your images as copyright for example.

    You can use pexel.com, 500px & shutterstock.

    I don't think using any image from a video (after screenshotting/ snipping is) is legal especially if that video was copyright protected.

    there are no really free photos of celebrities, even if you take their photos yourself you cannot/ should not use them.

    the photos are usually the property of the photographer, and the celebrity also has a right to being photogrpahed. Without the consent of both parties, if you use photos for commercial purposes they can either shut you down or sue you. I would advise against it.

    I'm just wondering about this, if someone shares an image from Shutterstock that they got from their own subscription, and we end up using it on our sites, how can anyone tell if the image was gotten legally or not?

    Technically the original sharer could use the images on his own sites, seeing as he paid for it. If he shared the image, and we end up using it, could anyone know that we didn't pay for it originally through Shutterstock?

    Something in the image exif data that I don't know about?
