Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Image Attribution Helper

When I don’t have an image of my own to use and cannot find a public domain image to use in a presentation I turn to searching for Creative Commons-licensed images on Flickr. Alan Levine developed a browser bookmarklet that helps me quickly formatting Creative Commons licensed images found on Flickr. To use the Flickr CC Attribution Helper drag the bookmarklet to your browser’s bookmarks bar. (If you’re using Chrome, you may have to go into the settings and select “always show bookmarks bar” before dragging the bookmarklet into your browser). Then whenever you’re viewing an image on Flickr you can click the bookmarklet to get a pop-up window (make sure your browser allows pop-ups) containing the properly formatting attribution information.
