There are many sites like this on the web, one I've heard good things about is http://www.istockphoto.com/ -- they have reasonable prices and good selection.

@Danni If you plan to resell an image purchased from iStockphoto as part of a paid website template, note that you'll need to buy the image with their Extended Licence, which allows unlimited resale of images as part of a template. Their regular (cheaper) licence doesn't allow you to redistribute images electronically at all. –  Nick May 18 '11 at 17:03

Read the license for the stock photography carefully. In order to resell the images you usually need an extended license, which can be very expensive. In many cases, it will be a one-use, non-resell license.

If the images in your template are just examples and the license your customers agree to does not allow them to use the images, you may not need an extended license, but you should make that clear to your buyers.

The Creative Commons Flickr search finds Flickr images licensed for commercial use, adaptation, and modification.

Do check the licence terms for each image, though; you will often be required to credit the photographer by name or with a link.
