Is it legal to take off pictures on google and print them onto shirts?

If not, what are some legal ways of creating/finding a picture that can be printed on to shirts?

It depends on what you mean by "noticeable." In most cases, altering an image does not make it legal to use. You have to make the image unrecognizable.

As suggeted, istockphoto.com is a good source. For clip art type stuff, clipart.com is excellent. You can get huge discounts on subscriptions --90% discount-- as described in this thread.

Not really not unless you create them yourself. Most images that you would use for printing for retail you will need to buy a right of use license, Or buy royalty free images, and make sure to read the license as some will have limits on the amount of times they can be printed for retail.

Try the Open Clip Art Library. It's all public domain clipart.

If that doesn't work, try the clipart.com link above. Though not quite free, they have an amazing library of over 10 million images, and you can get a year subscription for $20 or so.
