The Gale license or databases says that: 

For your personal, internal research and educational purposes only, provided such use does not violate the Terms, and there are no restrictions prohibiting such use, you may: Display and use reasonable portions of content contained in the Services.

In addition, the images that I reviewed also stated that "This image may be used for personal, non-commercial purposes only."

Based on these two statements, it should be fair use for you to use an image from Gale, provided that the specific image does not have a different statement. It should be fine to use without seeking permissions as this use should fall under fair use for education purposes.

You do need to cite the image as you would cite any other source. You can grab the citation for the database. You can see how in our How to Use Gale Academic OneFile guide. Grabbing citations works the same way in just about all Gale databases.
