You can't just use any images.
If using Google Images you must select tools at the top then usage rights to ensure that you can use them.
In most of the free image sites you need to check each individual image for it's conditions.
The ones inside WA (websites - site content) are OK to use.

I would use the ones on the WA site but I can't seem to find any pictures that feature Shapewear. Looking on google there are 100s of pictures I could choose from I'm just not too sure on citing and how it works.

So if it is "labeled for reuse" that means I don't have to cite it right? I could just go ahead and post it on my site and I wont have to do anything, correct?

I just googled it for you.

The "labeled for reuse" option allows you to use the image for non-commercial purposes as specified in the license. The "labeled for commercial reuse" lets you use the image commercially. The "reuse with modification" option grants you the ability to alter the image.Jan 14, 2014

Then Google says
Types of usage rights
Free to use or share: Allows you to copy or redistribute its content if the content remains unchanged.
Free to use share or modify: Allows you to copy, modify, or redistribute in ways specified in the license.
Commercially: If you want content for commercial use, be sure to select an option that includes the word "commercially."

BUT Google does not give you a commercial use option - just labeled for reuse as you say. It is so unclear that it is possible to get caught out by their own definition.

If it is for your blog, then you should have labeled for commercial use.

have you tried any of the other free image sites in the training Roope give us?

I have only tried the ones in the "site content editor" where else could I find free images?
