RAW Photo Retouching Copyright Question


I work as a retoucher in NYC and, for practice (since I work with mostly interior design/architecture), I downloaded a set of free RAW headshot images from My question is about whether or not I can use a photo on my online portfolio as an example of my work.

The site says:
We at know how hard it is to find really good raw images for exercise. Therefore we allows you to download this set of Practice Images completely free and without registration.
* Attention, the Practice Images are subject to intellectual property rights!
In this website ( the users can find photos for practice so they can improve their retouching skills. The Practice Images are offered at no charge and registration. If you download or print a copy of the Practice Images for personal use, you must retain all copyrights to © Photographer,
Do the bolded sentences mean I can use the image as long as I © put "Photographer's name", below the image? I don't want to "steal" someone's image.

Could go either way; since they offer free RAW files to download, I would assume they're expecting people to retouch and use the files for their portfolio, but +1 on e-mailing to make sure you're good to go.
