Beware of free image sites for commercial use - usually you have to pay
at least a little money so that you can say you had a legitimate right
to use the image, if the image turns out to have belonged to someone
else.  Unfortunately it's common for people to take an image and sell it
or post it on a free site saying it was their own.

This one is legit: ( formerly
and recently purchased by Getty )

Some of the photos do have restrictions (eg, 'Author must be notified
if the image is used in a public work' ), but the majority are free as
in beer and speech.

A lot are "amateur", but I've found some surprisingly excellent photos on there.
