flickrcc is a simple online tool that will search for creative commons flickr photos. It allows you to:
- search by ‘any’ or ‘all’ tags that you nominate
- nominate how many thumbnails per page
- sort by ‘interestingness’, date posted or date taken
You click on the thumbnail to get the code to embed the photo with attribution on your blog. If you are allowed to you can edit a large size in picnik, you will need to handle the attribution for this yourself.
I ran a search on the term ‘farm’ and it took about 12 seconds to come back with 90,192 photos. See the search result.
Here are two of the photos that came up in my ‘farm search’ – each with a different cc attribution. I just copied the embed code, inserted below & the photo & attribution appeared. It also makes the word ‘photo’ a link back to the original in flickr.
