Images, like text, have copyright. That means there are restrictions on how you can use them legally.
Fortunately, we provide access to millions of useful images that you can use, for free, and more and more people are making their images available through the Creative Commons.
A few tips:
- Always check to see if you have the right to use an image. Online images will often have a 'Creative Commons' license that will let you use images for free under certain circumstances.
If there is no licensing information, then you can't use the image. You can use images you get from our databases, like AP Images.
- Always attribute the image. Give credit to who took the photograph. Typically, if you can, you should also include the date and the title (if there is one).
