Flickr Photos and Creative Commons (CC)

Creative Commons is a licence that people can put on their work that is an alternative to copyright. Sometimes I do not want to copyright my work… sometimes I want to SHARE my work and allow others to use my work. This allows the world to be a much friendlier and nicer place! I am not trying to make money off of most things that I do and I am honored when people feel that my work is something that they can use, edit or build upon for themselves.

Thank you to all of you out there who share your work so that I can use it also. One great place that people share their work is http://www.flickr.com. A graphic designer friend told me that one trick is to search “free textures” on flickr to get texture images that I can use to make my photoshop projects a little more awesome.

The default setting in flickr is that your photos are copyrighted. I have set my default settings for when I upload pictures to flickr to be creative commons. Please feel free to use any of my pictures in any way that is appropriate.

Here is how you can set your settings in Flickr to creative commons.

  1. log in
  2. Go to the upper right hand corner and click on your avatar.  From the drop down menu choose settings.
  3. Click on the “Privacy & Permissions” tab
  4. Scroll down the page
  5. Under “Defaults for new uploads” go to “What licence will your content have?” and click “edit.” Choose “attribution creative commons.”

Thank you for working to make the world a kinder, gentler place!


Thank you to my twitter friend Robert Madden for pointing me to a site that helps me to more easily search creative commons pictures on Flickr»

@alicekeeler You can label pictures as CC, or you can use www.compfight.com to search Flickr for CC pics. Did that answer your question?
