    We would like some context, please. Tell us where you saw it, if it was connected with anything (such as a photograph), and if there was any text before or after it.

    Yes, it's written below a photograph. It's like this: 'evening view of.../ Image Courtesy of...'. In the image is a company's photo.

    Thanks

    Image courtesy of usually indicates that the person or company named allowed you to use the image free of charge, as a courtesy. In return, you are acknowledging that kindness by letting readers know the source.

    If you had to pay for the right to use the image, you wouldn't use "courtesy of" -- and you normally wouldn't have to use any other attribution, but that would be negotiable.
