Well the first step is do you want free ware? or pay ware?
Freeware(there are many): library.avsim.net
Payware(there are many): cloud9, flytampa, Imagesim
and the list could go on forever. Do you have a certain area your looking for? ie: LAX, ORD, JFK, LHR, MIA
or are you looking for an overall texture improvement. If so, check out flight1's Ultimate Terrain

Quoting AA388 (Reply 2): I know were to find them just how do i put them into flight sim?
The file you download is usually a "zip" file. Right click on it and "Extract all files", by default to a folder within the folder you're already in. One of the resulting files will be a text file with instructions.
In most cases it's just a matter of moving a folder into the Addon Scenery folder of FS. You need to go to Scenery Library next time you run FS, click "Add Area" and select the folder you just added.
