You must assume that every image you see on the Web is covered by
copyright unless you have contrary evidence. So before you save an
image to use in your leaflet, you need to make sure you have the
right to use the image. Using just a part of the image or modifying
it, even heavily, violates copyright unless you get permission to
use the image.

You can start by contacting the Webmaster for the site and finding
out whether the image is in the public domain.
