Stock Photography
Stock photography galleries cost, but because of their extensive collection (often hundreds of thousands) of photographs you are likely to find what you are seeking quickly - whereas you may spend hours in free clip art and image galleries and not find  quality images you wish to use.

However, stock photos are usually large and high resolution,  may need considerable reduction for the Web, and may have use restrictions. They may not be suitable for Web graphics unless optimized in a graphics program.
