Picture-based flashcards for language learning

Are there any websites that will help me make picture-based flashcards for language learning?

I'd like to make a bunch of picture flash cards for Italian vocab learning. (So I can learn vocab without having to use English translations). Are there any good sources for these sorts of images (images that clearly refer to a simple, single concept)?

Maybe not to make your own, but here is a site with simple picture Italian (and other language) flashcards.

iFlash for mac OS X is great flashcard software (print and electronic). It also lets you have audio attached to the cards and export to iPod.
sorry if your not mac, but you didn't say

Response by poster: I was actually intending to use iFlash once I find a good source for pictures :)

I think the search term you are looking for is visual dictionary. That one has some really nice pictures. This one is shabbier but may have more words

Rosetta Stone software teaches languages through images in the target language. Studying vocabulary without context (as you're suggesting) is not a good way to learn a language. I personally recommend the Pimsleur method as the best way to learn a language. It teaches you vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar at the same time.
