How do I work with images that appear in a template, they're not in my library.

I'm creating a new website and chose a template with which to start.  I love the images in the template but need to move them around, change size, etc. But I'm not able to do that, and I don't see the images in my library.  Are template images useable and how can I get them into my library so that I can use them on other pages, etc.?

The images are owned by Squarespace and are copyrighted. You're required to replace the demo content with your own, as explained in the Squarespace Terms of Service:

"Demo Content (or any portion of it) may not remain on Your Site or in Your Videos or be distributed, publicly displayed, publicly performed or otherwise published."

I would like to use a pre-existing image of the template as a background of a new section I created.

As explained in my post above, the demo content is copyrighted and should not be used.
