I notice that most of the authors think that free images can be used freely for any purposes. But, keep in mind that, it is free to use/download but doesn’t mean it is free to resell or use in any commercial products.

The best way is to send an email to the creator and grant the permission properly if you really want to use the images in your template. Then, provide those info in the help file within the download.

Or of course check the license – creative commons with the following notations – make sure you are able to use in a commercial product for distribution – can make alterations (cropping etc) and no doubt listing in your resources and giving full attribution to the author with a link to the file in your documentation.

That’s what I do.
