It may be a silly question but I was about to use an image from an article in order to support my post (citing the article / authors), but I don't know if is there some kind of copyright infringement by doing that.

I would guess it may depend on the article but I just wanted to know if there is a general advise to follow on this.

    $\begingroup$ No harm done; no need to apologize. Asking a duplicate actually helps the website because it improves the page rank of the linked questions and helps people who phrased the question using the language in your post (as opposed to the other posts). $\endgroup$
