hi
I am confused about image copyrights because i copy images from LINK REMOVED and from other web sites. Like lets say I find a image of a red bunny on the internet, but I save the image and change the color to purple - is that now an original image? Would I have to worry about copyright stuff? What if I took two copyrighted graphics like of a bunny and a cat and combine them to make a logo? Would I have copyright problems then?

Just changing the color of a graphic may not give you the right to use the image legally. Combining two images really does not make it your own either.  If you well notice most copyrights state something like " in full or part".

There is a ton of public domain images out there you can use.  Try a search on Google or your favorite search engine for "public domain images".  You should get quite a few hits.  You can also find really cheap graphic libraries at your local bookstore or computer store that have thousands of images on them that you can use.
