    There's tons of photos on Flickr that you're allowed to use for free under Creative Commons licensing.  Here's the Flickr page that explains how it works.  You need to give a link and/or credit line, though.

    http://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/

    There are currently 38,179,496 free photos available on Flickr that only require attribution.

      Chrisinhawaii, I will read up on it again.  Every time I've tried I was not able to save the photo. I must be doing something wrong.  Thank you!

    If you use your own original photos, you'll get a much higher Google ranking.
