If you are someone who goes up on Google to find images for your website, you better keep reading because I am pretty sure you are probably doing it wrong. First off, the majority of images on Google are not free to use and the ones that are, most require some form of attribution. It is very rare that you will find a Public Domain or CC0 licensed image.
SETTING THE GOOGLE RIGHTS FILTER
It is very important to set the usage rights filter before you can use any image on Google. To do this you will need to click on the “Search Tools” button just under the search bar within Google images as seen in the image above.
This will open up a new row of 5 or 6 selections and you will want to click on “Usage Rights” which will open up a drop down menu as seen in the image below.
For use in your website you will want to select either Labeled for reuse or Labeled for reuse with modification. The differences between the two are pretty self-explanatory.NEXT UP = What to expect and what to do next.
