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

How to Find Free Images With Google's Advanced Image Search | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
There are several benefits to complementing your blog posts with a little visual appeal, but photos must make sense and not infringe on any copyrights. Follow these simple steps to find royalty free images using the Google Images advanced search.


The general rule of thumb in the Internet world is that at least one image should be used to complement every blog post you create. There are several benefits to doing this, with the most important being to capture the attention of many more readers by giving your words a boost with a little visual appeal.

However, this doesn't mean just importing the first image you come across. It must first, make sense and correlate with what the post is about and second, not infringe on any copyright laws. There can be consequences that go along with this that you won't want to personally come across. The easiest way to find an acceptable image is to change your Google search settings to filter out anything that could potentially bring you repercussions.

Verstandig om te gebruiken. Een fout is snel gemaakt. En dan duur.

Lean is about optimization of all the processes in any value stream.

It is about avoiding waste and reducing cost while increase value for the enduser. It is also about reducing cost.

Useful instructions here.  I have personally spent hours in google images trying  to find a picture for my blog, only to find that every one I choose has a fee attached.  Adding pictures to text makes it more compelling and enchances every "story"
