Free Images - Free to Use?

Just because it is easy to find images online, does not mean you are free to use them however you want. A lot of images are protected by copyright - and all images you use in projects should be cited.

Finding Creative Commons Images Using Google

It's fast and easy to use a Google Image Search, but many images are protected by Copyright. Click on "Tools" > "Usage Rights" > and "Labeled for reuse" to limit your search results to images that are free to use and share.
