It does appear that the image library in Sitebuilder is not working. Images in the newer WebsiteBuilder are available.  You might want to call them or open a ticket, but it may not get fixed at all.  I suggest doing a search for FREE images.  There are a few sites out there (make sure they are really free, not just royalty free so you don't break any copyright laws) that have at least a small selection.  I frequently buy stock photos to use from 123RF and the cost is usually only a dollar or two.   If you have been thinking about switching over from SiteBuilder to the cloud based Website Builder I highly recommend it. It's a little bit of a pain to do it, but once you get all the info over there, you will be pleased with the results and the matching mobile site.  AND the image library works just fine.  On a side note-I have seen several photos in the Homestead library that I saw in the Stock Image site.  Same images.  FREE in homestead.

I love this comment Lynn1286. I also highly recommend giving Website Builder a try.

We are aware of the issue with the Sitebuilder image library and do have a ticket to get this resolved.

You can upload images from you computer. Use Google Images.

Hey themieleman. Sorry to disagree with you on this one, but we do have to strongly recommend our Homesteaders don't use Google to get images for their site. It is difficult to know for sure whether the picture you find is going to violate copyright law. You can use pixabay.com for free images while we get this issue with the image library resolved. We do already have a ticket out to fix it.
