Image copyright is  a very important thing you have to remember when you add images from other sites the fact that the images available on another site does not mean that you have the right to use it on yours
You have to make sure that the person that took the picture is okay with you using that image
On Flickr that's fairly easy because he hasn't called creative Commons.

Noncommercial images  means you can use that image on your website as long cannot earn money from the website using that image this all depends on what that photographer set up  the image as in but overall the means you can use it as long as you are selling it.

Open license images means you can use it as much as you want and other images will be copyrighted.

copy righted image  means you cannot use them at all if copyrighted simply do not use them and if you're unsure always contact the photographer and asked them if it's okay for you to use their image on your website.
Adding images from external sources to your site can be a good move both for you and the person who took the picture at least as long as everything is done right.
Adding images is very easy getting the attribution right and doing your due diligence is also easy but way more important.
