Can I freely use images found via Google Images?


When using images found via Google, use the Google images advanced search options to filter your results. This will allow you to find items that are:

  • not filtered by licence
  • labelled for reuse
  • labelled for commercial reuse
  • labelled for reuse with modification
  • labelled for commercial reuse with modification

However, you need to be aware that it is possible that the person who has assigned the filter option to the image is not necessarily the copyright owner. 

You can find more information on our Copyright guide.
