If I did training videos for online presentations at a former employer but our parting was not pleasant and the videos are still up, can I do anything I can do to stop them?

Images from them are being used in new areas.

No, if you were employed by them and did the videos as part of your employment, then they own all rights to them (including copyright) and complete freedom to decide whether, how, when, etc. to sue them--including using images from them in other contexts.
