    This is quite a simple method but I don't know how many people use it. It's the fastest method I know to find stock photos which you usually have to pay for. This method is much faster than searching for images in google, because you are using a stock site's search engine first.

    Using Google Chrome, head to you favourite stock photo site (i.e. photodune, shutterstock), search by a keyword, order by number of sales. After you find a photo that looks good, right click on it and press "search image with google". Go to tools, multiple dimmensions and get the biggest image indexed by a site who already bought that photo.
    Using this method I've found photos even with dimmensions of 8000x6000.
    One more quick tip, despite it's in russian head over to fotokanal[dot]com, and using google translate search for images you need.

    I think you can use other browser too if you save the photo, and drag-n-drop it into google images.

    Best of luck!

    Another way to steal people's works. I've never found myself have to use 8000x6000 dimension large photos. Do you know what kind of digital camera can take this type of huge?

    The hardest thing to draw line in desert is just a small wind will fade it away and this apply quite well in IM, the line is so dim or no line at all. You know what line I'm talking about

    Yeah, I guess it should be on a black hat forum, not here...
    I'm not sure about the line you're talking bout

    I have been using this for at least a year now, too. You can't find all images, but you can find most of them.

    I usually try to edit it in some way to make it a little unique and less likely to get picked up by automatic searchers. So I might crop out some of it, remove the background, or add some text, just so it's not identical any more.
