Google Will Start Showing License Information in the Image Search

A small icon will appear in the image search results, indicating that a particular image is licensed. After clicking on the picture, Google will show additional information about who owns the rights to the content, and a link with a description of the license. Google reports that the new feature has not yet been launched, and encourages site owners to start preparing for the innovation in advance. In order for Google Images to display licensed information, you must add the appropriate metadata to each licensed image on the site.
