Online Stock Photos
There are lots of websites offering great quality stock photos, although most of them do charge for their products and prices vary greatly from site to site. There are some free photo website out there which indicate that their stock photos are free and clear to use, so they are worth a visit to see if their inventory might suit you.
Can I take pictures from Google or other websites?
In short - be careful! Many pictures that appear on Google are free and clear, but many have copyrights and should not be used. Google Images simply picks up every picture on every website and places them on their inventory. The unfortunate part is that it's really hard to determine if something on Google Images has a copyright. If you don't know how to tell, it is then better to avoid images from these venues and best to go to a paid site.
Choosing the right photos
Once again things on the internet are never straightforward! When choosing pictures on stock photo sites, you need to know where the images will be used on your website in order to determine the size of picture you need. Many stock photo sites charge different prices for different sizes of images.
