Safe Searches

School filters do block many of the inappropriate images found in Google images, however, there are still an abundance of inappropriate images that slip through. Therefore, students are encouraged not to use Google to search for images. The following "Safe" search engines are available for your use. These "Safe" searches are not perfect in their filtering and often yield very limited results, but results do vary on the different search engines so if you don't find what you are looking for on one engine try another.


 You can also check out some of the photo libraries.

2. is a very large collection of high quality photos that are free to use and or adapt commercially without attribution.  Photos that may be seen as objectionable are fairly rare on this site (use with caution, as you should with any website).
