Free stock photos

My boss always wants some kind of graphic content last minute that I usually go to google for and cut out elements of other photos to help create. I wanted to know if there was any other free image search engines I could use because google doesnt always have everything, especially in the right size.
THANKS

Ripping iamges from Google is HIGHLY illegal, and can result in a fine of up to 10,000 per image, per use, per copy made. Advertisng it on the web even opens you up to someone reporting you and collecting a nice finders fee.

Visit copyright.gov and start reading...

then, if looking for cheap and LEGAL iamges, visit istockphoto.com or clipart.com

I thought, that was for content to be sold or distributed. Our stuff is internal production videos. Copyrights applies there as well.

There are a couple of new royalty free stock photo sites that are ridiculously cheap and decent quality. They follow a different model than traditional stock sites -- anybody can submit photos, which are screened for resolution and quality before they're posted to the site. The submitters are paid a percentage of the download price, instead of the image being purchased outright by the stock site and resold. (I think of it as iTunes for photos.) Prices start as low as a dollar or two, and go up based on popularity of a specific image and resolution.

Try http://www.istockphoto.com and http://www.dreamstime.com - we had our company buy a chunk of credit so we can download as needed, instead of having to run get someone to input a corporate credit card number every time we need to spend $3 on an image.
