If you are including worthwhile content write and tell them what information the picture will illustrate, ask for permission to use it and tell them you will put in a link back to their site thanking them.
This doesn't always work but does some of the time. YOu might even build a good relationship with the owner of a related site.

And of course, make sure you are getting permission from the *owner* of the image, and are giving them the link-back for credit, not just dealing with the Webmaster of some other site that stole the image.
The mention of DMCA above was brief. But what it means is that if I find someone who has stolen my content, I can have their site shut down by the end of the day, and have it removed from the search engine listings in a few days. Bear that in mind if you're considering taking risks with copyright. One little stolen picture, video, music file, or article can put you out of business.
