Online Images

Here are some great places to search for images online.

What to look for when searching for images online.

  • Google Images: Explore the "Tools" tab to select your "Usage Rights" option that best suits your use to ensure you find an image you are able to use for your purpose. 
  • Flickr: After entering the image you are searching for in the search box, from the "Any license" drop-down menu, select "All creative commons"
  • Be aware of any disclaimers, notices or watermarks that clearly state the image may not be used.
  • It is recommended to always cite your source, where you found the image. See our APA guide for help with this.
