  8. Hey Lokesh, You did a good job by mentioning the sites to find free images. Few days back, I used a downloaded photo from Google search results. The result was the owner of the image complained on Google to remove this pic. For this I lost the rank for that post where I used the pic.
    Thanks for your posts.
