An inexpensive solution for Royalty Free photographs is http://www.istockphoto.com - prices range from US $0.50 - $1.50, depending upon the size and resolution required.

If you really want to pay:
http://www.animations.com/en
If you need specific type of pictures:
nothing better than google.com (no single site can provide a better one).
Quite good and have some useful links:

The average business loses $13.5M per year to ineffective training (per 1,000 employees). Keep ahead of the competition and combine in-person quality with online cost and flexibility by training with Linux Academy.

I've gotten some really nice, high-quality pictures from the users of this site.  I always just ask then im the forum area underneath their submissions for permission to use them in projects.  I've yet to be turned down.  Usually they'll just ask for a little recognition for their work, but some just appreciate the fact that you like their shots enough to consider using them for anything :)

I think that quite a few good suggestions were made... I'd split the points between the participants.
