Social Crawlytics seems so useful in keeping tabs on your competitors it’s almost hard for me to believe it’s legal.

      Even if you can’t pay for images, sites such as bigstockphoto offer a photo of the week for free that you can use. They offer some pretty good stuff once in awhile, so it’s worth checking out.
