Flickr CC Search


This is a way to search for, and stamp with attribution, Flickr images that you can use. It is designed with school pupils and mobile in mind.

You can use the images in blog posts, presentations etc and not worry about attribution. You can read more about creative commons: Creative Commons licences - BBC Bitesize or all the details at the Creative Commons


Put a word in the search box and click Go.

Click on a thumbnail to see larger version of a photo with attribution added to the bottom.

On iOS Hold your finger on the photo until a Save dialog opens to save an image. On the desktop right/control click in the usual way.


This is an attempt and work in progress to write a semi-useful web app for teaching & learning.

The photos found by the search are all ones with licenses that allow derivative works. Flickr safe search is on.
