Searching for Images with No Copyright Restrictions:

Google Image search (use "tools", usage rights: "Labeled for noncommercial reuse with modification")
and "more tools": show sizes. Find an image that is more than 600px. Copy the actual large image and not the thumbnail. Thumbnails are small and will have a generic name such as "downloaded.jpg" or "images.jpg". You want to instead click on the thumbnail to then download the larger version.

 

GOOGLE Image Search / Advanced - you can specify exactly what and how you want to search

Flickr - Lots of ways to search - The Commons, Participating Institutions
