Never assume an image does not require attribution. If you’re going to include an image, create your own or find images that are labeled for reuse. You must check the re-use restrictions on each image you find. You can use advanced settings in Google, Flickr, Bing, or Yahoo to filter by license.
For every image that you include, you should also include alt text. Learn more about why and how to include alt text.
