I love using flickrCC to search for Creative Commons licensed photos on flickr. It’s faster and simpler than the advanced search on flickr itself.
But I had blindly not noticed that they have incorporated Aviary photo editing as an option right off the main screen. (Thanks to Judy O’Connell for a Facebook post mentioning the change. Go read her HeyJude post for tons of info on free image sources!)
To edit in flickrCC:
1: Do a search, making sure you have the FOR EDITING option checked. (forgive my Helskinki obsession….) Select an image and image size. Note that the attribution info is all set for you to copy and paste!
2: Click on the EDIT link, make your edits, save and close the editor. (more…)
The Academy of American Poets Free Verse project on Flickr.
Inspired by the 2009 National Poetry Month poster design, the Academy of American Poets invites you to capture and share your own ephemeral bits of verse. Write lines from a favorite poem on a sandy beach, assemble twigs on a hillside, or chalk the sidewalk. Take a photo before it disappears and post it to the Free Verse group page on Flickr. Include the source of your lines in the photo caption.
All photos posted by April 15 will be automatically entered in a contest to win the new Poem in Your Pocket Anthology and a commemorative piece of hand-engraved jewelry by San Francisco designer Jeanine Payer. Selected entries will be featured on Poets.org.
