Updated Flickr CC Attribution Tool

Alan Levine created a great tool for formatting Creative Commons attributions for Flickr images. That tool is called the Flickr CC Attribution Helper. In August I published a short tutorial on how to use it. This week Alan published a small update to the Flickr CC Attribution Helper. The update added a link to the CC license type along with the link to the image source.

This update doesn't change the way that the Flickr CC Attribution Helper works. If you already have it installed in your browser, you won't have to change a thing. Alan explains it all here.

For more information about Creative Commons licensing, check out this visual guide.

How to Find and Credit Creative Commons Images from Flickr

Flickr can be a good place to find Creative Commons licensed images to use in blog posts, slides, and other multimedia presentations. The Flickr CC Attribution Helper makes it easy to format proper attributions for the CC licensed images that you use. In the video below I demonstrate how to find images and how to use the Flickr CC Attribution Helper.
