    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 and 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 or  In both cases it's a requirement for using the site.

      That's a good suggestion. I found a few that were copyright free but then I ended up using a lot of images from

      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.

        I too use flickr photo by searching for creative common license. I still try to at least credit the source in someway.
