Most search engines and image collection sites allow you to search the images.
-- Flickr: Creative Commons Since these are user-uploaded, the content is often more personal, less scientific. Use the advanced search to specify the license.
-- Google Images Go to preference to ensure 'Safe Search' is on.
Most image sources from these sites will include information about the copyright status. Many sources will allow you to reproduce images for educational or other non-commercial uses. Always remember to attribute the source of the image when incorporating it into your own presentations, or look for images that have the creative commons logo.

* Regardless of where you get your image from, it is a good idea to cite it. APA doesn't have specific directions to cite images, but you can generate a citation. Remember, the point is to give credit to the image creator and make it findable by your audience. Information on citing a video (such as one from youtube) on page 215 of the APA Manual.
