or just look on google images and then if you find something contact the author of the image

Also the google image search works well. If you are going to reuse them make sure to click on tools and see license options.

That is one dangerous tactic, as definite majority of all images that Google Images search serves are protected by a copyright. If you use these for your own content, you will sooner or later run into a legal issue.

Exactly

My m8 had a website designed for him and everything was fine then 3 years down the line he got a letter from an attorney in Canada demanding he take down an image on his website or pay $10,000 CAD.
It seems the guy who created his website had just picked an image from google images and used it without permission.

Google images picks up all the images from a website and makes them searchable. However if you go to the image tools you can select the license options and select "Labled for reuse". I make no guarantee that is accurate. One of the reasons we pay for some stock photo sites as well and use unplash and pixabay.

not accurate as when you do some searches it will state some Microsoft and Disney logos are free to refuse, but these are the worse when it comes to pursuing you for copyright breaches

Good to know. Thanks for the info. When we build sites we stay away from google images anyways and use our paid stock photo sites.

I have been using https://pixabay.com/ for some stuff but of course when it is free you struggle to get everything you need!

I use pics form http://deathtothestockphoto.com. They deliver them to your inbox monthly.

This is actually the first site I check as well. The only issue is that there aren't an abundance of images to work with.
