Saving Creative Commons Images From Flickr

How do you find media to use in presentations, web pages or other potentially public projects that don’t infringe on copyright?  Search for material with a Creative Commons license at

Another tip for cataloguing media is to name your files with the following convention:

  • date
  • site
  • author
  • file name
  • EXAMPLE: 151016_flickr_scottl_fenderstrat.jpg

Organizing your media this way makes it easier to cite the work later when you put the presentation or project together.
