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 1200px. 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.
