When some people look for images to use on their websites or in their videos, they go about it all wrong. They will just go to Google, type in a keyword phrase, click search, and then go up to images and click on the link.

The problem is, most of the images that come up in a google search belong to someone else and are protected by copyright. Now this doesn’t mean that you are not able to use Google to search for images for your websites or your videos, you just have to do it in the right way.

You can start your search in the same way, by entering a keyword phrase, clicking on search, and then clicking on images. After that, you need to filter your results to find images that you are allowed to use. To do that you can click on the button with the gear icon. Then select advanced search and click on that. Then scroll down to where it says usage rights. By default, the setting is “not filtered by license.” Open up the drop-down menu and select “free to use, share or modified, even commercially.” After you make your selection, click on the advanced search button and then you will be presented with images that you are allowed to use.

You still need to be careful however because not all of these images will be in the public domain. If an image is in the public domain, you can use it however you see fit. Some of the images that come up with this type of search are available under a creative Commons license.

Under a creative Commons license, you can use the image under certain conditions. There may be restrictions on how you can use an image or you may be allowed to use it however you want as long as you provide an attribution and credit the photographer.

You will have to do a little bit of research.
