Search Creative Commons – Tips & Tricks by Tom Van Kerschaver | Jan 5, 2015 | News, Other, Tools | 0 comments Last week we discussed ‘Creative Commons’ and ended the article with the Creative Commons Search functionality. When searching for images free to use, I sometimes ended up having to pay for them, or it seemed so… What is going on…? Lets search together! First case: goto the Creative Commons Search page and search for an image about ‘Vision’ on Pixabay http://search.creativecommons.org/ The results are a bit confusing. The first row of images are sponsored images and will cost you money. The next rows are Creative Commons images with licences for re-use. Second case: goto the Creative Commons Search page and search for an image about ‘selfies’… or why not ‘selfies lions’! Lets use Flickr this time http://search.creativecommons.org/ Exactly what I was looking for! I want to use it! Can I use it??? After clicking the image, read and respect the rights and download!
