Some sites may:

  • require you to publish an acknowledgement/attribution;
  • provide the wording required for the acknowledgement;
  • require you to accept cookies;
  • require you to register;
  • offer photos for purchase, often highlighted at the top of the page;
  • return to default mode (e.g., images that are not public domain or Creative Commons) after each search; or
  • automatically generate incorrect attributions. (Confirm before using!).

Also, be sure to always check copyright!
