Are you looking for photos you can use for a project or presentation? Well, Flickr just made it easier for you to navigate through the content on their popular photo-sharing website.
Seasoned Flickr users will be familiar with the homepage layout:
Go ahead and click on the “Everyone’s Photos” link above.
From here, click on the “Creative Commons” link on the upper right hand of the screen,
and as if by magic, Flickr returns a list of image results sorted by Creative Commons licence! From here you can choose among the millions of photos licensed for reuse under Creative Commons, based on what your intended us is going to be. And Flickr even offers a brief but helpful guide to the different Creative Commons licenses on the right hand side of the screen. If you want to explore more of the photos from a particular license stream, just click the “See more” link beneath each category.
Be sure to stay tuned next week, when we talk about the Practically Painless guide to citing material on Flickr!
