Never practice this. You should not copy any image or content from other sites and make use in your site. This will make your site spam and will not rank even if you optimize it well. Also, the site owners will file a complaint if you do it.

Your website or blog needs to have images, they help to make a site look more attractive, they help to break up long sections of text, can provide information, and with the right use of alt tags, they can be helpful to SEO. However, borgninestallon is correct, you cannot simply copy an image from another site to use on your site, even if you try to make some changes to it.

If you have a digital camera and some time you can create your own images. If you don't have the talent to create your own images, then use free sources for quality photos and images online. There are a wide variety of images available through creative commons licenses or that are in the public domain.

Even when using these free images be sure to understand and follow the licensing requirements.

If you don't find the images you want through free sources then look at the paid resources available and you will find a lot more options.

We use a variety of photo sharing sites to get certain images. We try and take most ourselves, but for some images we often use www.sxc.hu among other photo sharing sites.

It adds up to the content and makes it attractive, and it also helps in the social media promotion.

Exclamation Using Image With The Content

Well Their are Two Ways to use Image in Content First one is you can Create your own Image According to Content Subject and the Other way is you can use someone Else's image but for it you will have to mention his source URL as we do in wordpress.

Images can help make your page/content/website a lot more interesting and encouraging. Although I think you shouldn't just focus on the images itself but also the content that your website contains. I think more people are a lot more drawn to good quality content sites, which are actually worth reading.
It's not legal to just get pictures anywhere on the net. It's still ideal to have your own original images or else get them from stock photos available online for free. If you have the funds, then get a professional to provide you with original images to use on your site. Hope that helps.

Please do not copy/ paste images. It is not legal and could land you in serious trouble later on. What I do is to find creative common images and use them or create my own.

If I really like a picture, then I would get in contact with the owner to see if we can come to an arrangement - eg I use their image if I pay a small fee.. etc.

I say it's better to design your own image to avoid legal troubles. Simple designs with fast loading file formats can make things easier for you and your visitors.
