Can I use images I found on the internet in my e-books?

It depends. When you’re looking for images to include in your resource, it’s tempting to turn to Google images. Don’t do it. Just because you can access an image for free doesn’t mean you’re free to reuse it in your booksies e-books. It’s important to know whether the person who owns that image allows folks to use it, and what uses they allow.

The key is to make sure that you have the right to use anything you include in your e-books. That includes photographs, clip art and other images, borders and other design elements, and so on.

There are lots of other websites of image and clip art libraries, including UnSplash and Pexels, where you simply need to add credits and links within your e-books. We suggest that when you scour the world wide web for images; ask the admin of each website if you may be able to use the resources for your needs.
