Copyright Considerations

Most image sources will include information about the copyright status.  Many sources will allow you to reproduce images for teaching or other non-commercial uses.  Always remember to attribute the source of the image when incorporating it into your own presentations.

Some image search engines allow you to limit your search to images licensed with Creative Commons licenses that may allow re-use.  Often this is on the 'Advanced Search' screen.  See the specific license to see if you can modify the image, use it for commercial purposes, or need to make attribution to the creator.

Image Searching with Search Engines

Most search engines and image collection sites allow you to search the images.  Remember that the accuracy of the images needs to be evaluated along with the websites that display them.  Searching for images with general search engines may lead to objectionable or obscene images, so use caution.
