    Does anyone know if you can use the image of a G+ page for your authorship photo on a site, rather than your personal image? It appears that it does allow you to link it up.

    Actually authorship tag indicates your G+ profile that you are the author of this content , so you have to change your G+ profile pic to change your authorship picture.

    Just so I understand completely, are we talking about adding the "authorship" in the alt tag?

    nope, he is talking about changing photo in google authorship is possible or not and as Amarkolom said, it's only possible if you change your google plus profile pic. because the link in your authorship tag is pointing to your G+ profile and profile contain your pic that you uploaded last time. if you change it their, it will automatically change in google results. but if you think, you are able to use different photo for authorship only. this is not possible yet...

    Guys I need help in implementing authorship concept for SEO marketing.

    If I own three SEO projects related to a field for example:

    1. Information Technology
    2. Money and Finance
    3. Interior and Decor

    Is it recommended to create three authors separately for these fields ? or i can create one author sufficient enough to write about all fields/areas. What is Google's recommendations ?

    Google will only apply Authorship SERPs markup to human faces and may penalise you if you flounce this rule. It is difficult to say whether it is a human or a robot that checks the changes in your Google+ profile picture.
