    That is the way most school photographers do it because they know the photo's will be shared & copied. Most choose to accept the money for the digital only (with rights signed away) as chasing every copyright breach would be near impossible.

    Any time you use a photo that someone else has taken without getting their express permission (apart from a few uses that come under fair usage or derived works), you are committing a copyright infringement.

    Most people don't know the law or are not bothered about enforcing it but it is a different proposal for a professional photographer.

    Well now, the photo's I want to use are from the 80's and 90's which is why I don't know who took them.
