Sorry, I used to keep Terraserver running, but they stopped paying the bill so we canned them. Let me tell you, the three nights after they posted Area 51 pictures were not fun. Spent my entire shifts in a 50 some degree server farm with a couple FBI agents trying to track down who was constantly causing the servers to reboot.

I want an actual picture, not a map, and I can't use their program.

Try looking up the county auditor's website for the county of interest. Look for GIS links, and they might have a county-wide assembly of arial photos. Unfortunately, the technology varies alot from county to county. So, even if they have the information, it might be unusable.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about--this is Mahoning county, Ohio.

If you scroll to the bottom of the frame on the lower left, you will see two items under "Imagery" Check one of them and hit refresh.

Dude, http://maps.google.com

In the search bar type the whole address, such as
1313 Mockingbird Lane Nowheresville IL

Hit search, then it will give you the map and in the upper right corner is a button for "satellite"
