Finding Images

Where do I SEARCH for images online?
The best place to start your search is by finding sites that offer images that copyright friendly

Creative Commons

Share, Remix, Reuse — Legally
Creative Commons provides free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, and educators easily mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry. Here are some Creative Commons Collections you can use to start your serach

Flickr

FlickrCC - is an site that searches Creative Commons images from Flickr it randomly chooses a different word to display images each time you visit and displays a large selection in one view which could be trouble. FlickrCC also lets you edit images right away through its own editor or Picnik image editor available in Flickr.

Here are 2 cool flickr search tools that give you the thumbnail and all the attribution information

Flickr Storm http://www.zoo-m.com/flickr-storm/ allows you to create a tray of "appropriate images" for younger students without having them search on their own

If you use the flickr site, you will want to do an advanced search for images
http://www.flickr.com/search/advanced/ Flickr has one of the largest collections of user hosted photos, but not all are creative commons licensed. It is important to get used to following a few simple steps to ensure that you are following fair use guidelines.
REMEMBER it is not necessary to ask permission, but it is always a good thing to let a someone know you are using their image and the purpose of your use.
