So, you want to use a Google image for a school project, and you know that most online images are protected by copyright. 

You are thinking of using an image without permission and trying to protect yourself by citing the credit of where you sourced the image.  Is that a good idea?  Well, it is always good to cite your sources, but in order to start using Google images legally, it’s very easy to do the right thing!

On the Google Images page, first click on “Tools” and then look for “Usage Rights” (shown below).  For all your school work, select the “Labeled for noncommercial reuse” and you are totally covered!
