Behold: Creative Commons photo searching made easy!

I am often looking to find good images to use for educational purposes.  Personally, I’d love to find public domain images (see my post on the MorgueFile.com), but often that’s not possible, and the next best thing is the Creative Commons.  Many of the photos are available for use with attribution.  The problem is finding the images easily.  Flickr does have an advanced search function, but it’s kind of clunky in my opinion.  Behold, is a search engine that makes the job easy.

Choose to find pictures with a variety of levels of usability.  Do make sure to read the Creative Commons licenses and make sure you are properly attributing the sources, as they may have various levels of usability.

A simple search of “polar bear” with free to use and modify checked turned up this example of super cuteness!
