Technically, Yes but people do it all the time (Mainly teenage girls making videos of pics of Justin Bieber with his music in the background) and get away with it. All that would happen, if the company doesn't give you permission & wanted to do something about it, is they'd take the video down.

You can listen to full albums on Youtube. I don't think a couple pictures will get anyone in trouble.

YouTube (Google) has a blanket agreement with the most of the music industry to allow the use of copyrighted materials that includes payment to the publishers, the songwriters they represent, and the record labels and the artists. Any video that is "monetized" generates the revenue to be split.

I am not sure what the agreements are with visual artwork. I do know that every time I file a complaint regarding unauthorized use the submission in question is removed very quickly, but like all copyright infringement it is up to the artist or their representatives to pursue so someone unknown will probably allow it to be used but I think a credit of the work in comments is common courtesy.
