You can get penalties from image owner. However, it will not be noticeable by him until you will have an enormous blog that everyone knows about. On the Google side... Well, you better have some minimal Photoshop skills to wrap a picture with color saturation or make other color changes so this will become a "unique" picture.

Overall, i recommend at least give a credit for a website you got a picture from. That way you will not encounter any law or whatever (be sure to check that website Policy - possibly they want a Do-Follow link when you want to use some materials from them)

If you are using Google images that lead to copyright violation then it might cause trouble for you if the user takes any action against you.

There are many ways you can use copyright free images

Sites like Pixabay have free images you can use them.

You can also make use of Google search tools - Follow the given steps

1. Go to Google.com - Enter the keyword or your query - Just switch to image search -

2. Click on Tools which is on the Right hand side - Click on the drop down which says "Usage Rights" - and then choose the options you want to choose

I think you should try to pick free image from various websites like; Pixabay, Pexels, etc; and try to avoid google pic.

Have you ever wondered if it was legal to use any image you found online through a Google search? Some of us want to use an image we find on Google for our website, brochures or blogs, but is that okay? You’ve probably also heard us say that you need to add an image to your articles or pages for SEO purposes, but you may not be a photographer or want to spend money purchasing images. So can you just jump on Google and use any image found there? Here’s the low down…

Whats an image source and how do I locate it? If I use a copyright image by accident, is it a big deal? I mean will I just have to take it down, or will I go to prison?..
