Using Google To Find Images For Presentations
One of the first places many presenters go to find images for their presentations is Google Images. This however poses some problems in that we do not usually have permission to use these images. We can also spend a lot of time finding images that are of high enough quality to use in our presentations. However there is hope.
Use Advanced Search
The quickest method to find images that can be used in your presentation is by using the advanced search feature:
- Go to Google Images
- In the search bar description of the image
- Click on the settings tab
- In the dropdown menu click on advanced search
- Select the resolution you want
- At the very bottom select usage rights
Respect The License
One of my real bug bears is when I see images in presentations that clearly are not permitted for use. At Impact Presentations we ensure that all images we use are licensed for what we are using them for and display proper attribution where required.
Bottom line is to check the usage conditions and comply with the requirements.
