Appropriate use of photos submitted by others

First let me say I have only been on Ancestry.com for one week but I have a beginner's question.

I have found many photographs generously shared by others which overlap into my tree. Many of these photos were scanned at a low DPI and only fill a small portion of the page submitted. I have taken these photos, cropped them so the empty space on the page is eliminated. I also have taken a few to Photoshop to restore cracks, exposure, folds and spots.

My question is if I alter the photo then it shows the photo is submitted by me and does not list the original submitter of the photo. This meets my needs but I do not want to offend the original submitter in case they see my tree. I djust want to improve/restore some of the photos that I place into my tree.

Any suggestions how to alter the original photos and place into my tree without offending the original submitter would be appreciated. Is there any way to retain the original submitters name as the source of the photo?

Thanks,
