By default, all images have a copyright unless the copyright is released for public use. I don't know of any church images in the public domain.

You may have to create your own or find someone to create an image for you.

For any images found on LDS.org, you should consult the Rights and Use Information (link at the bottom of most LDS.org pages). That explains the licensing and copyright terms for that content.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Copyrights are complicated. Usually, if you create a image, you own the rights to it.

However, photos of buildings and sculptures may still have a copyright of the original artist.
