    Try Zemanta, it works along side your blog to suggest articles and pictures that you can click on and add to your articles as you write them. The pictures Zemanta suggest appear according to your articles content so they are ever changing as you write, you simply choose the ones you want to use.  You can transfer your article to hub or it may work with hubpages, but it is great for bringing up useable pictures.   They have thousands of pictures.

    I've fallen into the habit of taking my own pictures.  It's the best way to stay out of trouble.
    With today's digital cameras & the photo editing software that comes with computers, it's relatively easy to take a great picture.
    There's always something around your home or neighbourhood or even in the photos you already have that will fit in with most Hubs.
    Good luck!

    I try to take as many as possible of my own work.  Aside from that I use Bigstock Photo or PhotoBucket.

    Like most of the others, I like to take my own pictures.  I think it helps make the article unique, since no one has those pictures except me.  It's pretty easy to come up with an idea for a picture when I'm writing about something I'm passionate about. 

    If I'm stuck and don't have a picture I can use, I use wikimedia commons for the rest of my images.  I knew I wanted a picture of a hazmat suit for my first article on FlyLady, so the idea was there...the suit, however, was something I didn't have access to.

    I've been taken my pictures with a cellphone to get by for now and they have come out great. I was thinking of a hub on Donald Trump and on the way to pick up my girlfriend from work I stopped by a Trump hotel and took some pictures of the building an sign just for a nice visual.

    I look in my picassa files. Often I find relevant pictures I have taken. If I plan ahead I can take relevant photos for my hubs. Sometimes I take pictures of old prints and photos from my collection and even from old magazines.

    Really guys? Google?

    I do worry about copyright infringement, so I'm reluctant to take images from search engine lists. I rather create my own if that's the case.

    However, there are some good free stock photo/image websites out there.

    I usually add photo on my hub that is related to the article. First I make my article and then take photo myself. When I failed to get the photo for my hub then I take help of google search engine for finding the exact photo.

    I try to take my own pictures. If I can't or the topic doesn't lend itself to something I can take, then I try to find one elsewhere. I might ask a friend if she has one I can use or if it's something I think I'll use a lot, I'll buy it through a site such as iStockPhoto or Shutterstock. I also look for public domain images.
