Google Adds New Labels to Images to Make it Easier to Find Visuals You Can Legally Use
Images on Google search will now be labelled as ‘licensable’, allowing users to find visuals that they can legally re-use with permission.
As explained by Google:
“For results where the publisher or image creator provided licensing information, we will display a “licensable” badge over the image. When you select a badged image to view, we will show a link to the license details of the image, and if provided by the publisher, you’ll also find a link to where you can purchase or license the image.”
This is an upgrade from the current Google Image ‘Usage Rights’ filters, which enables you to find images that has been ‘Labelled for reuse with modification’, ‘Labelled for re-use’ and ‘Labelled for non-commercial’ usage’. The problem with the current approach is that Google can not show the images listed under its ‘re-use’ filters that are free to use. Users are still expected to do further research into finding the individual licensing requirements to enable them to use the images. This new update is a more advanced approach to the issue. Google is collaborating with a selection of image creators and stock image providers to display new listings that can be used by users. To ensure this update is seamless, Google is changing its listing filters so you can narrow down your searches to the ones that are licensed and unlicensed.
