Now, click the button that says Tools.

Select Creative Commons licenses from the Usage Rights drop-down menu.

If any royalty-free images are available from your search, you should see them appear in the results. Also, Creative Commons licenses now appears for your selection.  You can use these images in most cases, but you’ll need to abide by the Creative Commons license for your image.  Learn more about Creative Commons licenses.

In addition to ensuring that you’re not using copyrighted images, it’s good to keep a record of the web page or URL that you obtained your image from.  This helps you to quickly confirm for others that your images are not copyrighted and are free to use for your presentations.
