I know this will sound stupid but does anyone know the policy for using images from google in your own scratch project?

1 Answer 1


It depends on the license the image falls under. Some images are free for personal use but they usually require you to give credit to the owners of the images.

It's better and less time consuming to go to photo resource pages rather than Google so that you can see immediately what the licensing requirements are to use the image. Flicker for example allows you to search by the Creative Commons license.

Morgue file is another good place to try or similar sites. You can do a Google search for free images and you should get websites which are repositories for images.
