Can I Use Images From Google?

When searching for images in Google, you’ll often be tempted to use the first beautiful picture you can find. It’s a good idea to stop and think for a second:

“But can I use images from Google? Is it legal?”

More often than not, these questions bring people to a conclusion that goes something like this:

“If I can find it on Google, that must mean that it is free, right?”

WRONG.

Creating Images for Your Blog the Right Way [Using Canva]

Assume every image you find online is copyrighted.

Wow. That was eye-opening.

No more wondering if you can use that photo from Google Image Search Results, right?

Quick note to all the smart pants out there:

Making changes to a copyrighted image doesn’t give you the right to use it.

Oh and one more thing — fair use doesn’t mean what you think it means.

My “use” certainly is “fair”, my website is non-commercial, I’m linking back to the source and even listing the photographer’s name!

It doesn’t work this way. You can still get sued over something as trivial as using images for a blog post. Stop and think about.

The solution to this is to change the way you search for the images from the start.

Enter the CC0 images.
