As Margie wrote about ‘There has to be an easier way to find images I can use” I went and had a look a followed the instructions of how to filter with Google to find creative commons images. I clicked the link http://www.whiteboardblog.co.uk/2014/02/google-images-makes-easier-search-creative-commons-images/ and what wonderful instructions. I was actually looking for some safe images (not filtered by licence) so I actually found what I wanted. This site also tells you how you can look for images by colour even. Here are some more links to creative commons images as posted by The Whiteboard Blog. What a great find Margie.
Here are some other good search engines that you can use to find creative commons images from Flickr:
