Locating Images on the Web
There are numerous web sites that you can search to look for digital images. These search engines will locate images that range from personal photographs loaded by an individual, to scanned images loaded by a professional artist or art organization. Remember, before adding an image to your project, verify what limitations has the creator placed upon the image. You can also filter for Creative Commons images when you search. See the directions below on how to do that with four popular image search tools.
Under the Any License drop down on the top left select which license you want to restrict your search to.
Click on Tools at the top of the results page then select Usage Rights to limit your image result to a Creative Commons License.
Bing Image Feed
Select "Filter" then the "License" drop down at the top of the results page. Then choose which license you want to filter by.
Yahoo Image Search
After conducting an initial search click on "Filter" then "Usage Rights". Then choose which license you wish to use.
