Inserting Images

Use images in Google Docs to make the more visually appealing. In Google Docs images are both useful and simple to add to a file.

Searching for images

When you search for an image in Google Docs, it's important to know that almost all of the images Google finds will belong to someone else. Google tries to filter the results to only show free Creative Commons images, but it is important to go to the source of an image to check the copyright license. For more information on how to use images found on the Internet, read our lesson on Copyright and Fair Use.

Options for searching

Google Docs offers three search options. The Google Search and Life photo archives options display search results with a source web address for each image. The third option displays stock images.
