GEOG 150 / BIOL 150 - Silaphone: Finding Images


As tempting as it can be to simply search Google for images related to your environmental issue to put into your poster, you need to resist that urge!  In order to be following the law, you need to use images that are specifically marked as being allowed for re-use by others, and if you do not use such an image, you are basically stealing someone else’s property!  Use either of the two image search engines below to search for pics that have a  Creative Commons license attached to them, and you’ll always know that what you are using won’t get you into trouble!  


Flickr is an image-searching site that lets you search by keyword - and then refine your results to make sure that you are looking at Creative Commons licensed images.  

Google Advanced Image Search

The advanced Google images search lets you (all the way down at the bottom under usage rights) choose that you want to search through images that are allowed to be produced/reproduced.
