1. Do a Google image search.
2. Click the Search Tools box at the top of the page (next to More).
3. Click on Usage Rights.
4. Click your preferred filter, you can choose from the following options:
Not filtered by license
Labeled for reuse
Labeled for commercial reuse

5. Your image search will then show only the images with your preferred usage rights.
Looking for an image online that you can legally and safely use on your own Web site? Google now makes it easier to find one. A new Usage Rights filter is now easily accessible on your search results page, as tweeted by Google software engineer Matt Cutts.
