Can I publish a picture from a third-party site in my article, mentioning the source?

I’m writing an article about Blockchain to publish in my LinkedIn and the blog of the company that I work for, and I mighty use some third-party pictures. Some of them I found on the internet, from websites such as Financial Times. However, I’m not sure if I can use third-party pictures on my publication because of copyright, even if I mention the source.

Could someone clarify if is allowed or not?


It’s only allowed if you ask them first and receive written (probably email) permission before using the image(s). In this case the credit would read something like “Reproduced with permission from…”

The exception to this is if a website has a blanket rule saying that images can be reproduced for editorial purposes. Getty Images, for instance has this policy. Again, you have to give them proper credit.
