Types of usage rights

For each “Usage rights” filter, you can limit results to images that have license details attached, which include how you can license and use an image.

To find license details: Select an image, then below the image, select License details. We recommend that you always review the licensing requirements of any images you want to use.

  • Creative Commons licenses: These images are usually free to use, but require credit. They may also have limitations on how, or in what context, you can use them. For example, an image’s license might state that you can’t modify it or use it for commercial purposes.
  • Commercial or other licenses: These images have non-Creative Commons licenses and can be from either free sites or commercial sites that require payment.
