[TIPS] flickr- commons


What if you had thousands of pictures that you wanted to categorize. How would you do it? The Library of Congress has such a collection and they’re asking the Flickr community to help them categorize (tag) their photos to make them searchable. How ‘bout that?


The images are licensed under a new Creative Commons license called, “No Known Copyright Restrictions.”


There are two collections. Why not stop in and add some tages, if you think they would be helpful.


How clever is this? Invite the public in to do the work – and they DO it! Gladly!!!


While you’re there check out this page to search through millions of photos that you might be able to use.
