Free and Fair Use Images

  • Whenever you use an image for a presentation or project, it is important to give credit to the owner of that image. It is not acceptable to only use a Google Search to find an image and copy and paste it into your product. Many images on the Internet are available for educational use, but require specific citations. Below are some resources to help you better navigate images you may use for your work. Each site will provide the specific citation information that you need to include when you use the image.

    When searching for images using Google, after you have search results you can filter them to help you know which, needs what kind of attribution in your work. Select "Tools" from under the search bar (far right) to open a menu: Size, Color, Type, Time, Usage Rights. Choose options from under Usage Rights to filter your results by Creative Commons licensing or Commercial & Other Licenses or All (default search setting).
