    I'll go down the lines.

    There are many sources of images, but what you're looking for is called stock photography. Stock photography is a picture from a pre-collected set of images taken by professional photographers. They are pictures that are usually for sale that can be used in many situations.

    The creative commons license means (and this is in general - make sure to view the specific license before you start, done by clicking 'creative commons license') that the image is free to be used for personal or commercial use. Usually, you have to link back to the original photographer or provide some sort of credit.

    Royalty free are a type of paid images that have a single, one-time fee. These differ from Rights Managed photographs that have continuous fees over time, depending on an assortment of factors (how often it's used, how much profit you make from it, etc.).

    Under the Creative Commons license, you usually have to give the photographers name. This can be as easy as putting a 'sources' or 'credits' link in the footer or putting the photographers name in the 'alt' attribute of the photograph. For instance, you could do something like this:

    Code:
    <img src="http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2162/2341162923_3c492c670c_z.jpg?zz=1" alt="Fly in the rain by Nam Nguyen" />
    Edit: I think that that's XHTML, but I can't be sure w/out checking. So confusing these days!

    So if you hover over the image, you'll see the name (if no other effects are in place). Easy as that, and very unobtrusive. If you contact the photographer, he might let you use it without reference, but I highly doubt it. As in, very highly doubt it. His specific policy states that you need to reference him if you use it, but it's OK for commercial work.

    Good luck.

    To be honest, it's highly unlikely. Most photographers want some credit for their hard work (which is understandable). Even some commercial photographers want you to give them credit.

    I can't think of one off the top of my head.

    There was a similar thread recently. You might get some ideas there, but again, you need to check the terms of use for each site.

    Well, there's the ones mentioned above, plus the ones in the other thread I linked to. Have you tried all of them?
    Don't be arrogant. Be kind to a koala that thinks it's a bear.

    Please give me solution for this.
    I'm very interested to know why professionals who want to sell their commercial services or products, expect to be able to find other product for free? Why should you not pay for the images for your professional website? I want free stuff too. Do you know where there's a supermarket where I can get free food? Please just think about it.

    Any stock image site will have images for you. The license or terms of use can be sticky but keep in mind that as long as you are not selling the photos in anyway, you are pretty much safe.
