    It's usually safe to assume that any picture that is not your own or in a 'free pictures' library will be someone's copyright. Wherever possible, it's best to take your own pictures. It's also more fun. But where it's not possible, e.g. a historical hub about Henry VIII, borrowing a stock picture from Wiki probably isn't going to land you in trouble. When the picture isn't your own, it's best to credit the source.

      I would say only if the person allows you to take it. I don't know how photo bucket works and if you can apply a creative commons license like you can at Flickr.

    Wikipedia uses copyright free photographs so we can use them also.
