I saw the copyright thread about recipes and quoting cookbooks here on Meta (and in one of my first posts, remember learning a valuable lesson as well [grin]).
My question is about photos. In this thread, I wanted to include a picture of a roasted red pepper, but am not at home so can't provide one of my own. I linked to one, but fear of link rot has me wondering if it would be ok to download and then upload to Imgur via the WYSIWYG. My assumption is no, that the image is copyrighted.
The reason I even bother asking is because I see what appear to be professional images appearing inline in posts (recent example), so I'm curious if it's ok or if those are just oversights and we should be editing those out and explaining why.
tl;dr - Can we included inline images from other sites in our questions/answers, even if we're not sure of their copyright status?
