Using Flickr images for free

Finding free images for use on your Web site, blog or design project can be a real pain. You could turn to some of the free stock photo sites out there. Some are pretty decent, but most of the images have a distinct "stock photography" look about them. Instead, try using images from Flickr.

Before you say "the images on Flickr are copyrighted, so they can't be used for commercial work," think again.

Here's how you can use Flickr images for free, without depriving the photographer of the credit he/she deserves.

There are plenty of tech-related images on the web, but Flickr is fantastic for general imagery.
