When I learned Hilchos Nidda in YU, my Rebbi quoted extensively from a 2 volume set called "תא חזי", available at many seforim stores. Vol 1, Vol 2 I don't think that they have pictures, but these things can't really be captured in a picture. It's about the halachos.

בדי השלחן written by Rav Feivel Cohen on most of the major parts of YD inc. Ta'aruvos, Basav VeChalav, Nidda, Tzedaka, Aveilus. On Zeraim, there is Derech Emuna by Rav Chaim Kanievsky. This is witten on the Rambam, not on the Shulchan Aruch - however it can be used together when learning Mitzvos Hatluyos Ba'aretz in YD. חלקת בנימין written by R' Binyomin ...

You may find "Aruch HaShulchan" By Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein (1829–1908) as a good choice. It is very comprehensive but not at the same style as M"B. However it is one of the best Halacha books

There are a few options that I can think of: Koren Publishers write here: Subscribers to the hardcover edition will receive each volume in advance of the Daf and an email containing a link to download the PDF. Each PDF contains the side-by-side English-Aramaic translation and commentary by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz and color images. Vilna page not included. ...

If they were just chronicles, they would not have been included in Nevi'im. If you read the book of Kings, you see many times it references the historical records of various kings. This implies that it was not written as just a book of history. Instead, it is a book with a message, and written by a prophet. The book of Samuel contains the prophecy that King ...

Welcome to Mi Yodeya. I am not sure who made this list, but it contains major errors. For one thing, Semicha did not end until the time of the Amoraim. As a general rule, anyone who is given the title Rav or Rebbe in the Gemara received Semicha. For another, the ultimate source for Jewish Law is not the Mishnah, but the Talmud Bavli. There are many cases ...
