    Use you own picture or use pictures with permission.  There are plenty of sites that allow pictures to be used for free such as stock xchng

    There are places like wiki commons that you can get images but I think you should try as much as possible to use your own images. I now always carry a camera around with me to take pictures that might be useful in future. Also take some general images like street signs etc that could also be useful or you could scan in objects on your computer.

    I think that if you are writing about topics that you have a lot of knowledge or info on then you quite often should be able to come up with some kind of pic that would suit the subject.

    You may use images from the web with the following caveats;

    1. Does not have a copyright symbol or any such wording indicating copyright or negating free use.
    2. The images are to be used in a comparison, for instruction,for personal use, to demonstrate a technical element, to showcase a point.
    3. You may not claim them as yours
    4. You may not alter/edit them in a public forum;example would be to use parts of the image in a logo, to edit the pixels, unnecessary or selective cropping, especially when dealing with body parts.
    5. You may not be critical of the image,author,the image's intentions or purpose other than from a technical standpoint. Example; "the image is underexposed" is OK. "the photographer is a deviant" is not OK.
    6. You may not directly profit from the image; example; if you made money when people clicked on the image. The ads on your hubs are not relevant.
    7. The images may not be directly taken from the owner's web site. It's OK from Google Images but not from "John Doe's Photo Studio."
