I found a great image on line, if I attribute it to the owner can I use it in a blog post?

It depends on what the copyright owner allows you to do. You will certainly need to do some research to find out and it is not advisable to use the image before doing the research. The owner may issue a licence, for which you may have to pay a licence fee. Please do not use any image without first finding out if your use is an infringement of copyright as this can have serious consequences and some of the biggest image houses carry out searches for illegal use of their images.
