Where can I find pictures to use in my hubs that aren't personal pics of my family and friends?
Try Wikimedia Commons - these photographs are free to use, but you do have to name the source in your hubs with some of the photos. There is a huge collection at this site and the majority of my photos for my hubs come from there. They have selections on everything from buildings to people, so I'm sure you will find a few that are suitable for you. If you can't find what you're looking for in your first search on Wikimedia then change your search words around, it's amazing what different photos will come up. Hope this helps.
I use Flickr search through the creative commons section. You will find that there are many to chose from. However make sure you check to see how you have to attribute the photos, Hope this helps, I am just as new to using photos as you are, and I am still learning about submitting photos.
