Question of using images under the "Fair use" clause.
Normally I grab my pictures from a photodumb that has free pictures that allow you to post their pictures (provided you site the source), but recently I was writing an article and thinking that the National Geographic picture of "Afgan Girl" would be perfect. The article isn't about anything related to afgan girl besides the quality of the picture it'self. The hauntingly pretty eyes, the foreshadowing of a difficult life yet still a fire that burns behind her eyes...good picture. Of course I would site the source of the picture.But can I use?
I have seen it on other sites but it does belong to the National Geographic society. They don't usually give away images, they sell them here

Fair use has nothing to do with using that photograph.
You normally cannot use an image that is for sale unless you pay for it, even if you cite the source. You can link to it but not display it on your page unless you have permission from the copyright holder. If you display it anyway, you can be subjected to a lawsuit and a whole lot of fines if you're found guilty.
I was reading that it qualified for fair use under the idea that it is a historical image or rather I found a good picture of Afghan Girl on Wiki and they argued they were using it under fair use.
