Google makes it easier for you to filter image search results by usage rights

Google is making image search more convenient for those who are seeking pictures to use in their publications — it is letting you sort images by licensing rights under ‘Search Tools.’

Previously, the option to sort search results by licensing rights was found under the ‘Advanced Image Search Page’ and therefore much more inaccessible. In fact, a lot of users might not even have noticed that such an option existed. A minor tweak to its placement will no doubt help to raise awareness.
