Flickr is an image sharing website where users can upload photos, organize them into collections, and share them using creative commons licenses.
NOT ALL photos on Flickr are free to reuse, but many are. Watch this video (created by Kara Dawson, UF college of Education) that shows how to search for creative commons images in Flickr.
Search creative commons to find images, video, and music that you can reuse!
What is Creative Commons? Its an alternative to traditional copyright. Its a new way to license creative work that enables collaboration. Depending on the type of creative commons license, you can use, alter, or remix the images, video, and music created by other people. Get started by searching!
"ARTstor is a nonprofit digital library of more than one million images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and social sciences with a suite of software tools to view, present, and manage images for research and pedagogical purposes." (http://www.artstor.org)
The images available in the ArtStor database can be used for educational purposes in the classroom. To use ArtStor images in the online learning environment, make sure that your online classroom is password protected and accessible only to UF students, faculty, and staff.
