Google Image Search Tools

Students love pulling images from Google Image searches, and often times forget to provide the appropriate citation. If they use an image without the appropriate rights, there could potentially be some backlash. With the help of some of the built in search tools, students can filter a Google image search to provide images that they might have rights to use. Here is how to use these tools.

  1. Go to google, search for you topic, and click images

  2. Click Search Tools, then click Usage Rights. 

  3. Select the option for "labeled for reuse"

Along with the simple license filter there are other options for sorting by color, size, image type, and time. All options that may have value for students, depending on the particular assignment.
