    OK so I spent the day working on my website. It's all going pretty good but I need image content. I have this thing going where I'm tryna style my business as a team of experts (when actually it's just one ignoramus). It's sort of a health related field, if you can imagine .. So what I need are pictures of 4 or five people to help construct the personalties of fictitious personal trainers. How do you think I could go about getting such pictures? My instinct is to rip off facebook profiles. What's possible blow-back could I get from ripping off a bunch of facebook profiles around the world? Assuming that worst came to worst, and one of the owners of the profiles came to my website and saw herself on the front page?

    Why dont you try your like with image stock web sites? There are few free photos in every topic.
    Thats way you may be sure that you dont take any risk

    Yeah I lookied into that. The thing is those pics all look horribly generic. And also, I wanted to have a few fake facebook profiles associated with the site. And to make fb profiles seem authentic, you really need a variety of pics.

    Rip some pics from someone from another (western) country that you don't target with your campaign.

    Post on some classified site and pay someone to give you their pics, or find a freelancer from this forum - "hire freelancer" and make sure they dont rip off pics. That way you are safe.

    Find a website similar to yours that no one will ever see. If you're looking for pics of a personal trainer, find a website for some gym in a small town nowhere near you then use those pics.
