Everyone knows that images give a better presentation to anything and Google likes good looking blogs or websites. I heard that if the pictures are not available for reuse, they would penalize you so I wouldn't go around on Google Images just to search for your niche and paste the image on your site since it is risky. I just want to know that should is copy images from google for my website or I need to hire a professional designer?
Before you begin saying things that may or may not be true, you should link to a source to validate your claim.

I have not ever heard anything like this and I've done websites for 15 years.

Just because you hear something, it doesn't make it true. You need to back this up with a valid source.

Do you have a source to this info?

@Alexandoy Your posting of personal captured images not necessary all the time, I think so. Sometimes there need to be images in the post that are taken by professional photographer or professional designer.
My main concern in using my own photographs in my articles is the proprietary rights. I have attended several conventions of Intellectual Property Office and some were even sponsored by WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). There it was discussed topics like the consequences when you use intellectual property without permission. And since I have countless of photographs in my archive so that's where I search for a relevant photo for my article or for any other posts that needed an image. At least my mind is clear of any threat or complaint of infringement of rights on images.

Sure, if you have countless photographs so there is no need to you for searching and collecting more pictures from internet or any other source. Anyway its your good decision to use only your own photos to be safe in all aspects.

Yes uniqueness of the photos is the basic point to catch visitors and to stay there for a long period and it can be done by adding unique pictures that has not been added or seen before.

No my suggesion is you should not to copy a image from google or any where because unique content or unique image is really genuine but duplicate or bad content is bad it's not impressive for your website.
So i suggest you should hire a professional designer for the creating image.

If possible, you should use your own camera to take the photo instead of Googling for the images. Using your own photo can help your image to rank better on the Google image search. And I believe that using your own original image can also help you to get better ranking position on Google. You can put watermark on the image to prevent people from copying it.

If we compare the mode of delivering information to client, like video, image, and text. Videos have more priority than image as well as text. and we compare image and text then image have more priority in term of understanding the any concept. If we include a image in the article then the themes of content is recognized without reading the content of article and it attract the more and more readers.

If you have the opportunity to add your own image, please do so. Your team page needs pictures of your team, not this dude on the right or one of his stock photo friends. Off topic: let alone that the dude might need a haircut.
