​​What Does Google Have To Say About Free Images?

Nonetheless, I strongly advise you not to tempt yourself in using images that you have no permission in using, especially, when you are using them for business usage.

I know it’s one of the easiest ways, to do a Google search, grab a picture, crop the image and use it but, it’s not worth the pain and money that it could cause in the future.

So, never, ever us just any image from Google. It can get you into some hot water. If you were to use Google images, they have to permit you.

To find out if you have permission to use the  image from Google, you’ll need to do an advanced search and filter by selecting the “usage rights” option.

You’ll see options like the ones listed below.

  • Commercial – this means that you can use the image for commercial usage.
  • Free to use modify or share – this means that you can copy, share, alter or redistribute according to the image license.
  • Free to share or use – this means as it says, you share, copy, or redistribute but, you can not make any changes to the image.

​Now that you know what to expect from Google, you may soon realize how this can still be a risky situation. It seems to be a thin line for some of these rules. By the way, if you share images on social media, and you’re not sure if it’s legal to use that image, you may want to check out this  blog resource from Hootsuite.
