Hello

I was wondering just
How much of a picture do you need to change to not make it copyright so you can then use it for commercial purposes.

Also how could you go about this?

For instance add some tree branches, add ears to a figure?
Thanks

You would need to change.... ALL of it

The act of adapting a work without the permission of the copyright owner is an infringment.
