No different than quotes

This is no different that quoting something within the paper.  So long as it (be it quote, picture or whatever) is sourced/cited in some manner using a photo is perfectly appropriate.

So for example if I quote a part of a history book, it, it doesn't matter if that history book is a real book written for profit or a piece of Wikipedia.  It just needs quotation marks and a proper citation.  Pictures work no differently.
