Images that come with MindJet 2016 are very limited. does anybody have any idea where I can get as many images to be added to the MindJet Library?

You can add any images you wish to the library. There are many free and paid sets available on the internet.

Place your "custom" images in a folder and then use File - Options - Package Folders - New to "link" to that folder. They will then appear in the images library.

When images are added to a map they are copied to the map file. The larger your images, the larger your map file will get. It may be judicious to re-size images in your custom folder to suit their purpose. You only need hi-res large images when you use photographs which are going to be printed in large formats.

Here are some further ideas about using Package Folders

Thank you so much for your rapid reply and on a weekend! the challenge is that for instance if my box or object is blue, most "canned" images are not transparent but have a white background.  

If you have specific image libraries, free or paid that you suggest that I can add as custom to MindJet I will be incredibly grateful.

You could use Paint.net or similar to convert the white background to transparent and save as .png.
