How to Find Free Images With Google’s Advanced Image Search

Digital Marketing Consultant

Follow these simple steps to find royalty free images using the Google Images advanced search.

Step 1

Enter a search term in Google Images search.


Step 2

Click the Gear icon, then select Advanced search.


Step 3

Scroll down and use the usage rights drop down menu to select free to use or share, even commercially.


Step 4

Click the Advanced Search button.



The image search results will give you a bunch of copyright free images to choose from.


Step 5

Last step – Just to be make sure that  the image is really “free” to use. I love this tool TinEye which does reverse image search. This helps you locate additional information or creative commons usage. I highly recommend doing this as other bloggers could have removed the copyright and metadata from the image and re-uploaded without the owner’s permission.
