    What are the legalities around using stock photos floating around the web?

    Photos around the web are not free, usage can be tolerated sometimes....

    That depends where you get the pictures from. To play it safe I get most of my pictures from flickr by using the Creative Commons option on the search page.

    I look for pictures that explicitly allow any use, modification, derivative works, etc. Usually, there's something available that is free and suits my needs. If they want credit back I gladly give it as it makes my site look more reputable IMO.
