Goodmorning! I do the same thing. On all of the blogs and internet I see lots of beautiful pictures and they are such wonderful inspiration, that I like to look back at them or show a vendor etc. I don’t claim them as mine though, so I guess it’s not illegal if I have them, b/c I don’t say they’re my images? Hmm…

As long as you’re only saving the images for refrence, like your "idea board" or somethign like that, you’re fine legaly. Don’t use the images for your invitations or to make money or to even show to another artist for them to copy (IE: "hey i liek this exact little bird drawing, can you draw this exact little bird wiht no variations?") those are all instances where you should give money to the origional artist.

If you want to put a copyrighted image up on your wedding website or blog, then make sure you give the owner credit everytime you are able to (a link back to their website under the image is fine) on the internet an artists Photo is their livelyhood. And if you have a popular blog let the artist know you’d like to use their work.

hehe this was a bit long and maybe more detailed than just saving images, but i hope it helps some beyond just that.  I come from a background in the art industry and i know not everyone knows the ins and outs of how to use someone elses work.

But as long as your just brainstorming PDF away!!!

Another way around this is to hit "print screen" on your keyboard and then to type ctrl+v (paste) into a word document or a program like paint. It copies your entire screen, including the copyrighted image, and makes it into a jpg file. Then you can crop the image down to what you want to save. Just make sure the image is fully visible when you do this.
