Flickr images use… and a couple of holiday photos

A lost Exit78 post , recovered from Internet Archive WayBackMachine; July 2011




To keep from inadvertently infringing someone else’s copyright, I generally use my own photos for this blog or images that I get from public domain sources. Of course, it also gives me an opportunity to show my images. However, there are some instances, such as when I don’t have a picture that fits the topic, where it would be great to have another safe source of images.

Skellie at has a great article on using images from Flickr that have been made available by their owners under Creative Commons licensing. His Her article is titled A Complete Guide to Finding and Using Incredible Flickr Images and includes an explanation of the Creative Commons concept.

There are a lot of fantastic images available on Flickr. In just a few minutes browsing, I found the two photos that I’ve included here. I used the advanced search feature, with “Christmas” as the search term and using the option to “Only search within Creative Commons-licensed photos.”

I’ll be including more holiday related photos in the blog during the rest of the holiday season. Like normal, I’m having a bit of a problem getting into the holiday spirit, but perhaps it’ll help if I am taking some holiday pictures. We’ll see.

I love that photo. So very nice. We just put up our tree today. I need to take a pic and post it.

This is great information. Now I have a whole new world of images to use as long as I honor the copyrights. :)
