I usually get them from freefoto.com but I would like to know if anyone knows any other places to get more variety.
NASA Images is free but they ask that you give credit for pictures when used.
All free for commercial and personal use.
Also DSL - digital library system of U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
gimp.com and paint.net are photo editing sites
there's always photobucket and flickr but i don't love these two.
I don't know about PhotoBucket, but you can't use just any photo off of Flickr. You have to do an Advanced Search and look for photos that are designated as able to be used commercially--and you have to give attribution.
You MUST link back and provide attribution when you use photos from freephotos.com or freedigitalphotos.net. In both cases it's a requirement for using the site.
This is one of my favorites for free images
That's a good suggestion. I found a few that were copyright free but then I ended up using a lot of images from www.sxc.hu
Careful - always check the conditions. Many of the Wikimedia Commons photos require you to acknowledge the photographer.
I don't use Photobucket, it's full of stolen photos and there's no way of telling which is which.
I really like Flickr - I wrote a Hub about how to use the photos. You have to do an advanced search, as you say, and you have to provide a link to the photographer, but that's no big deal - and they have a fantastic selection of images.
opps, didn't know there are stolen photos in photobucket. I have read your and Pucnix's hub on free photo. I have to look for flikr now. I like to use a lot of photos in my hubs.

I know the rule about 2 links Only to the same domain. But HubPages has said time and time again in the past about "authoritative sites" as exceptions.We have been suggested to even use sites such as Flickr or Photobucket for images.-So, how many pictures can you link to from these two...

Has anyone ever run into copyright issues using images from photobucket? I like the selection at photobucket, but it seems like people post a lot of photos they probably do not own. I like using photobucket, but there's this thought in the back of my mind wondering if I've stolen someone's photo...
