How to find the best stock photography images for your cover design (and check that nobody has used them!)

UPDATE: I wrote a long post with best stock photos for book cover design HERE.

This video was just to show you how to browse Google for “similar” images, and also checking to make sure that nobody else is already using them for a cover. It’s a great way to find new images, get book cover ideas, and check to see how many other people are using a picture on a cover before you use it on yours.
