It might surprise a lot of your students (and teachers), but just because an image shows up in Google Images, it doesn’t mean you’re legally allowed to copy and paste it into your work.

Here are a few places to help you find photos that you can use… legally.

  • Creative Commons has a search tool to help you find creative commons licensed stuff on other search engines.
  • You could also try Everystockphoto.  They are a license-specific photo search engine that helps you find freely licensed photos. Please note that some of the sites that they link to may require a free membership account to download the photos – like Stock.xchng (sxc.hu)
