This screencast demonstrates how to find photos on Flickr using the Creative Commons filter in the Advanced Search settings on Flickr. The download of a photo from Flickr will also be demonstrated.
Cooliris is a company that first received attention by making a Firefox plug-in that allowed for you to view images on a 3D wall that you could easily scroll through instead of clicking through pages of photos. This layout made it natural and easier to view a bulk of photos. I first used this plug-in to view my image search results on Google. Now Cooliris has unveiled Cooliris Express, a web based version of this plug-in that allows for you to add your photos and videos to a 3D wall and you can embed it into your blog, Twitter post, Facebook post, or website. This would be great for a presentation of a portfolio or for a presentation in class (thinking Art History as an example). You can also pull photos from other places (I’m thinking CC licensed photos on Flickr for a class presentation).
