There are iStockphoto, Getty Image, Corbis, Fotolia, etc... Great pictures, but you have to pay to use them, even if it's only to practise Photoshop. You also have Google images, but the pictures are not always aesthetic, and above all most of them have a copyright.

If you're searching photos or textures for your non-commercial artworks or to create some images in Photoshop, kavewall.com/stock and photo-libre.fr offer some amazing royalty free pictures, which you can use for all your non-commercial works.

Here's some pictures to make your mouth's watering :
