    Is there anyway I can use fake photos for authors on my site? I want to post under pen names and use a fake author photo for my posts. If I can, where can I find photos where I wouldn't get in trouble to use as a fake person?

    Take any photo, add a moustache.

    That's a joke, don't do that.
