Great news!  Google Image search now includes a filter for searching images licensed for re-use!  Just go to Google Images and search by keyword.  Then under search tools choose the appropriate license under “usage rights”

For example, here’s a search for images of rainbows licensed for re-use with modification.

Not sure which license you need?  The Creative Commons website explains how you can (and can’t) use work based on its license.  Or, leave a comment below about how you want to use images, and I’ll help you figure out which license is right for you.

  1. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I
    had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Many thanks!
