Selecting Usage Rights in Google Images

Using images appropriately is a digital citizenship and copyright issue. It is an easy thing to let Google help you find only copyright-free images that are free for you to use, modify, or share - you just have to know one little trick. In Google, type your search term and press Enter. Click Images > Search Tools > Usage rights




If you are not planning to further edit the image, select Labeled for reuse. 


You still need to cite your source! To locate the image URL of the image you want to use, right-click the image, then left-click Copy image address.


When you paste the image address, it should end in .jpeg, as this one does:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/54/20110425_German_Shepherd_Dog_8473.jpg.

Another source for images is Pixabay. Per their website, you may download, modify, and use these images without attribution. Note that you need to download these images before using, rather than linking to them.
