For this month’s blog post I wanted to share what I hope is a very useful feature for those looking for free quality images for their website.
As we all know, a well placed graphic can add much needed spice to a dry article or section. However it’s important to make sure that you have proper usage rights for that image.
In helping someone with this very dilemma , I came across a handy feature, right within Google. So here you go!
Finding Copyright Free Images
Launch Google Images and perform your search
Now here is the addition … you’ll see a “Search Tools” option to the right of the menu … select this.
From here a drop down will appear, select “Usage Rights”, and you’ll find a list of various options. Select “Labeled for reuse”.
Viola! copyright free images available for use.
Here is another site that can be useful as well: FreeImages.com. When using this site, make sure to select the “Free Files” filter at the top.
