So I am trying to wrap my head around copyright I understand the just of it but these two sites offer to use their images no questions asked BUT reading the fine print it says you can't sell or distribute ?? So does this mean the original photo? What I am trying to figure out is if I am to use a photo to draw n possibly sell do I need permission even though it says I don't need too ? Very confusing , any help in this area would be appreciated  :)

you can use the photo in any project and sell that item. What you cannot do is sell the photo you downloaded alone or as a set of photos. In other words you can paint the photo and sell the painting without any hassles.
