If you need to find an image, infographic, graph or chart, try searching Google Images. You can even search by entering an image and find out where it is from - called reverse image search. Use the camera option in the search box to do this.
Remember to be careful of copyright considerations when reusing images found online. Google Images allows you to limit your search to images that can be reused. Once you have performed your search, click on Tools under the search box and from the usage rights drop-down menu, select the appropriate option.
For more information on copyright and finding copyright-free images, see the Images and Video Survival Guide.
