    I have a question... (bear with me)

    If I copy a picture from a website (with consent), paste it into an article I am making. In 3 months, the owner takes down the website that I got the pic from, does the pic get deleted? Should I save the image to my computer, than upload it to the article I am making?

    If you are hotlinking and the source image is removed from the host server then it will no longer display in your article.

    Most hot linked images will eventually go away and that is a very bad thing. It makes threads useless because main content will be missing. I suggest you use an add-on to immediately convert hot linked images to attachments to avoid this problem. Here's one such add-on.

    Is copying and pasting an image, hotlinking? Or just putting the image url.
