- Make sure you understood the license correctly
- Get the correct HTML code for the IMG tag
- Link the image back to the Flickr photo page
- Give the author of the image proper credits (Attribution)
- Link to the Flickr profile of the author
- Link to the license the image is licensed under
Flickr currently hosts more than 75 million images that are licensed under a Creative Commons license. Depending on the license, you may use the images on your private or commercial webpage, or make changes to it.
With ImageCodr.org, there is no need to do all this manually!!
You simply grab the URL of the picture page that you are interested in.
Drop it into ImageCodr.
Then ImageCodr.org will generate the ready-to-use HTML code for you to drop into your online platform of choice.
It will also display a brief and easy license summary, so you don’t get in legal trouble because you missed something.
I know that students (and teachers) just like to copy and paste images from anywhere into anything. But we really can’t afford to miss the opportunity to teach our kids real digital citizenship skills even if it’s just about how to use images.
From small acorns, big trees grow! What seeds are you planning on help grow today?

Thanks for posting about this Judy, and for providing screenshots taking us through the process. Very helpful. This will definitely be something I’ll be showing my students in 2011.
Thanks for this useful post Judy. I think the point you make at the end about digital citizenship is really important.

Judy thanks for sharing this. I had a testrun and it is very easy.
Excellent! One thing I didn’t like, which I should have mentioned, is that you can’t wrap text properly depending on the platform. But for me that’s a small price to pay for the convencience of quick application of creative commons for kids.
Thanks Judy, Looks like it will be a useful tool.
