Using images for blog articles

Hello digitians
after a lot of time consuming site-jumping, i managed to create a Wordpress website.
The website is about PC systems and components. Usually recommendations will be posted there. I started the website with monetary benefit in mind. But as i went deeper into this website business, i realized the problems of using product images on the site.

After reading horrific copyright stories, I am scared to create another article with images.

I know i can get CC images from flickr and Wikipedia/media, but they are not equal to the quality of a professional photo and most of the times they do not directly to the theme of my content.

So my straight question is to you- How can use Product images of say companies like corsair, CM without infringing a copyright.

Any Net guru or internet entrepreneur here?

Any suggestions Guys or gals?

I run a wordpress website, and although I don't use it for monetary benefit, I do tend to try using non copyrighted images.

I always try to shoot my own pics, or choose stock image in case the topic is generic. I also thought taking images from large websites, but giving due credit avoids the hassle of copyright. Not sure how right that notion is though.

Btw, you can share your site here: http://www.digit.in/forum/chit-chat/190717-bloggers-thread.html

yeh some tips somewhere in there
get official images, there is usually a good version somewhere on the site, cite source as official site

This is the right way. Giving credit when using someone else's image is okay. That way they get backlink credit so it's a win-win for them.

You can use commercial sites like eBay for product images and show link from where you have taken it.
This will be a good practice.
Product images mostly do not go into claim business as it is to sell products and if someone is using, it means it will benefit a manufacturer only.

Try to take product images from manufacturer"s website.

Right off the assembly line
Try to buy stock images from pixabay etc. if you have to use other images make sure you have attributed the image to its original author.
