    I have blogs that has lot of pictures on them and use hotlinked pictures. It is no problem for content providers, but I've been thinking lately more and more how it affects SEO? Do you think it has big impact on SEO if you have pictures on your own site?

    yes it does. you have to maintain a good percentage of pictures/text. Most picture sites are based on viral traffic mostly cause of that.

    although same principles with normal seo apply here as well ;)
