Thank you Skellie! I still have a few questions:

1. What happens if a photographer on Flickr with a Creative Commons License suddenly changes the license to Non-Commercial? Will the tutorial be taken down? 2. What happens if the linked photograph gets taken down, wouldn’t the tutorial become useless in a way?

Hey Paulus, rather than taking the tutorial down we would act only if we were contacted by the original author, in which case we would give you the opportunity to use a different image in your tutorial, rather than removing the tutorial. We would see that the image creator’s change of heart was not your fault. Though you are a little bit safer with watermarked stock, because the author can’t change their mind if you bought it :)

If a linked photograph was taken down, you’d be able to update your tutorial with a link to a similar image. Most people won’t use exactly the same image anyway – they’ll get the image from their stock provider of choice, but just search for a similar style of image.
