I know this is weird, but most of the time, people prefer that you host a copy of the image on your own server, and include a link back to the page with the original. They don't want you to put the image on your own page, calling it up from their server. That is called bandwidth stealing.

So, I hope that makes sense. It's pretty much common practice to post copies of images in blogs, as long as you link back to where you got it with a credit. I'm sure there are times when more formal permission request would be appropriate, but I'm just reporting on what's actually being done on blogs.

Thanks, Donna. I've got the bit about using one's own space for image storage. I was questioning the legality of copying the images . . . and decided to play it safe--!
