    I use google images and Bing most of the time. Sometimes, I even make my own. Hope this helps!

    to use pictures that are not yours , you need be careful where to upload them , not everywebsite offer its content freely so in order to avoid having problems of the originality of content and permission of the piccture owner whose picture you have doanloaded somewhere in the net and use it in your hub without him granting you the green light , i would suggest for you a couple of sites where you can legally pick up your pictures :
    1-google images
    get into any of the above mentioned sites and choose the picture you want to use and save it on your computer then when you write your hub there is the list of capsules on your right click on photo , this capsule will automatically show up at the footer of your page you can scroll it up or down as you wish using the directional arrows , click on edit button on the photo capsule and choose my computer  and then select which folder in your computer you stored it then click upload image , when it is done click on save ,

    First of all, google or yahoo for some nice pictures.

    Fit them into the picture capsules and you can adjust the size if needed.

    Play around and you will get a hang of it!

    You have to be very careful using Google images as most of them are copyrighted so it is easy to be in breach. Be extremely careful. far better to use stock photos even if you have to pay a little.

    It's best to get them from your own computer.

    Don't worry about copyrights just download what you like and change it a bit in a photo editing software. I tire of people getting so upset if someone uses their images. If you like mine, use them. Life's too short to worry about such drivel.
