About This Class

Many website owners and hobby bloggers use Google to source images to use on their own websites.

This is a potential legal issue since using other people's images without their permission is considered an illegal action. Proceeding in doing so can attract huge fines if you get found out.

In this class I share with you how to use Google to search for images which are free to be re-used on your own sites or in publications you distribute.

Important Update to NOTE:

Even though I am sharing with you the way to search Google for images classed as 'Free to use, etc.', it is still always advised to check with the original owner to see that he/she gives you written permission to use their image with attribution.

For anyone wanting to know how Google determines their 'Free to use' images tagging, this is in part based on the image tags set up by the respective owners through the Creative Commons licensing, more about it at

Always better be safe than sorry...
