Can I use images from google as a background?


#1

Hey, I was wondering if you are able to use images from google as backgrounds in your stories because when I go to upload an image I’ve found, I have to tick a box about owning it or something, so does that mean I can’t use that image from google as a background as it’s not mine, its theirs, or does it not matter. I’m so confused.

You have to make sure the image is free to use. You find this out by going to the website the image came from and checking their terms of use.

Ok, thank you

I would say it wouldn’t matter, with the hundreds of people that use Google images. I think it wouldn’t make a difference. Episode usually check the image anyway. If something was wrong with the image or was copyrighted like Star Wars. Episode wouldn’t allow the image to be use

If you edit the background you also have to make sure that it’s free to edit.
