I quite often buy photos from 'stock photo' companies to use on our website, but I've recently noticed that these images are often already indexed in google (i.e. the actual images from the stock photo sites, not the same photos that have been bought by someone else).
While I'm not interested in whether the images themselves get indexed on our site, since I've given up on google images traffic, I am slightly concerned that having a 'duplicate image' on a page might devalue the page itself - ie duplicate image might make the page count as duplicate (the written content is high quality and unique).
Any opinions would be very welcome, thanks
