Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that allows people to license or grant permission for their work (like images, video and blogs) for others to use.
Utilizing images through Creative Commons is free and allows you to improve the look and feel of your blog or another publication if you don't have the photography resources that may be required. And, for those that share their work through Creative Commons, it opens up a place to have their work gain awareness and visibility which can lead to future business. So, let's get started on finding and sourcing a Creative Commons image through Flickr.
