Copyright & Fair Use
If you have not heard of copyright laws and Fair Use when using images, here is a short video on how to properly cite them, (in order to avoid breaking any copyright laws.)
"What?!? You mean I can't just copy and paste images from Google?"
"Yes, that's exactly what I mean, but don't worry. You can use some images. You just need to make sure you have permission to use the image and give credit to the source of the image."
The first thing you need to do when looking for images is to make sure you have permission to use the image
There are different resources you can use like Google (www.google.com)

Creative Commons is a great resource to use when you are looking for images, since it has many sources you can choose from.
Here are some other resources you can use to find images:
Title, Author, Source, License
Once you have all the images you want to use, remember you must also cite the sources. An easy way to cite an image is to include the following:
Title: What is the name of the image?
Author: Who created/owns the image?
Source: Where did you find it? (include the link)
License: How are you allowed to use the image?
