How to Find Creative Commons Images Earlier this month Creative Commons released a new image search tool. When you use the new Creative Commons image search tool all of the images that you find will include all of the image attribution information that you need. The attribution information is formatted for digital and printed use. In the video embedded below you can learn how easy it is to use the new Creative Commons image search engine. On a related note, PhotosforClass.com offers a great way to include a Creative Commons image search tool in your classroom, school, or library website.

The challenge is to rework the screens and get rid of the bullet points so they don’t always look like classroom slides. A great way to get out of the PowerPoint look is to create screens that hold content in different ways. For example, if you put a TV monitor on the screen you’re less inclined to use bullet points. So a good way to rework the screens (and get rid of bullet points) is to think of different types of display screens you can use as content holders. WARNING: Course context is everything.

Download 100,000 Free Art Images in High-Resolution from The Getty When I want to get a good look at the city of Los Angeles, I go up to the Getty Center in the Santa Monica Mountains. I can also, of course, get a pretty good look at some art at the museum there. But if I don’t feel like making that trek up the hill — and if you don’t feel like making the trek from wherever you live — The Getty can give you, in some ways, an even better way to look at art online. Just visit the Getty’s Open Content Program. Seeing as this sort of free cultural resource fits right into our wheelhouse here at Open Culture, we’ve tried to keep you posted on the archive’s development over the past few years. Last time we passed the word along, the Getty’s digital public-domain archive of high-resolution images had grown to 87,000, and now it has nearly hit the 100,000 mark (99,989, to be exact)— which sounds to us like just the time to keep you posted on what you can find therein.
