Screencast: Finding and using images with non-restrictive licensing.

This screencast will show you how to find free images on the web that are okay to use under Creative Commons licensing. We’ll explore what Creative Commons (CC) is, what each CC license means, how the image can be used and how it differs from traditional copyright. We’ll also demonstrate how to search for Creative Commons licensed work on Flickr and contrast that with finding public images on morgueFile (and how the morgueFile license works) as well as how to download images from Flickr and morgueFile.
