    What do you mean white-hat or legit sources?

    Are you talking about copyright-free or royalty-free images? Google Images has a search parameter for that.

    http://wwwBigstockphoto.com subscription plan will be the cheapest if you have an ongoing need. If you loiter on the subscription plan page for a minute you will get a 7 day free trial offer @ 5 images a day. Any size even the big ass ones that are normally a pretty penny. That plan is $69 a month and way cheaper than buying them ala carte

    Wow bro! That's ON THE MONEY! That is exactly what I was looking for. I had no idea about this feature.

    Thanks to everyone else. My OP was a little vague, so thanks for your contributions!

    No problem. Not sure why there's any need for any other source suggestions. Free and best selection is probably what you want.

    here is my list of places that I use to get hi-rez and hi-qual images for free and with commercial use rights

    unsplash - the best place ever for do whatever you want photos
    littlevisuals - just like unsplash
    gratisography - just like unsplash
    wefunction - has a good list of free photos
    superfamous - mostly nature background photos, but very good
    deathtothestockphoto - title says it all, superbly good photos, you need to register though
    photopin - lots of good photos form around the web
    pixabay - very hi-rez photos, you'll need to register though
    dotspin - has a good selection of photos, some of wich you can download for free
    freeimages - formerly sxc.hu, totally free images, best if you do photoshop mixes and need specific images of things
    flickr has creative commons search feature and you can find very hi-res quality photos here and has a huuuuge database, you'll need to give credit though
    and of course, google has the same feature

    a question: when you put a picture on your website, how can anyone know if you pay for it or not?

    you can put watermarks on the pictures or you can put a lower quality version, and only when they pay you give them the hi-qual.
