Where to find Images

Finding Images with Google


As previously noted, using an image you find online can be problematic.  To locate images using Google that are cleared for legal re-use, follow these steps:

Visit and look for the Settings option, usually in the lower right hand corner, then select Advanced Search.

Google Advanced Search

Type in your topic:

Find images on this topic

Then go to the bottom to narrow by the types of usage rights:

Usage rights limiter Google

Select which option works for you, then click Advanced Search.

You should still cite these images, but you do not need to get permission to use them.
