For paid royalty free images, audio, and video, I like 123rf.com because their customer service is top notch. dreamstime.com and freeimages.com are also ones we have used in the past but I would make sure you do not show the actor's faces in an identifiable way and check for any other possible copyright issues.

@Nadja - Fotilia is a great resource because their photography is ok, and they are very cheap. I would also recommend 500px and Flickr, and just use the search tools to find cc images.

The best is still Getty, but you pay for it. iStock and Shutterstock deal in many of the same images. At some prices, it makes sense to do your own shoot.

One minor point: sometimes, when I'm really struggling to settle on a theme or image, I'll just Google the terms or similar phrases, see what kind of related searches appear, as well as related images. From there you can better use the search capabilities of your stock service, and search for original sources.

Nadja, I am afraid you will not find a source that combines all these attributes. Some will be free, but require attribution ( Flickr CC) or some will require a fee and not always attribution. But free, beautiful, no attribution with copy, modification and distribution rights just doesn't exist. Unless if you take the pictures yourself.
