Google Docs has two built-in image search tools. The first is a Google Image search that defaults to finding images that can be reused. The second tool is the Research tool that has a built-in citation tool. In this video, staff author Jess Stratton illustrates how to use each tool, and the differences between each.
- [Instructor] Let's go over the difference…between inserting a image the regular way…from the insert menu at the top of the screen…and using the research tool.…The first thing I'll do is click insert image.…All the way on the right-hand side of the top menu…I can click search to do a Google Image search.…The great thing about doing a Google Image search…in Google Docs is that it automatically filters the results…to only show me pictures that are…labelled for commercial reuse.…
If I choose to search for an image by typing in my search…and clicking the blue search magnifying glass icon,…it's going to show me images that Google has gone out…and searched the web for those that it thinks…are labelled for commercial reuse.…Now it does say at the bottom, only select images…that you have confirmed that you have a license to use.…That is because, Google is only going out…and looking for text underneath the image…that shows that it's licensed that way.…It might not be licensed, even though…Google thinks that it is.…
