How to get and use free images the RIGHT way in class

2636196924_24f5f57acf

Images can bring presentations, reports and other student work to life. Students should learn to use images responsibly. Here’s what you need to know to help them. (photo credit: 03.Photog.DrumCircle.DupontCircle.WDC.29jun08 via photopin (license))

 

Creating posters has been a staple of so many classrooms of different ages. Usually, it entails gathering some important supplies before starting — posterboard, glue, markers, etc.

Many teachers will round up old magazines, too, letting students cut and attach images that illustrate their topics.

The digital age has opened classrooms up to a figurative stack of magazines that’s virtually unlimited, searchable and easily usable. Plus, you don’t have to clean up little bits of cut-up magazine off the floor when you use them.

I’m talking about Creative Commons images. There are lots of them. Generally, they can be used very freely by students in virtually any project or activity.

Copyright vs. Creative Commons

If students are looking for photos and don’t have any training on where to find them, where do they often turn? In my experience, it’s Google Images.

The problem: a standard Google Images search returns lots of copyright-protected images. Students aren’t supposed to use them in their work without receiving permission, and they definitely shouldn’t publish them to the web.

The solution: Use Creative Commons photos with proper attribution. (We’ll get to that part in a moment.)

Here’s a rough analogy I use to explain the difference between copyrighted images and Creative Commons images when I present to teachers:

Copyrighted images (all rights reserved): It’s like the photographer is saying, “This picture is mine. Mine, mine, mine. And you can’t have it. Unless I say you can.”

Creative Commons images: It’s like the photographer is saying, “This picture is mine. I’m the creator. But you can use it. Just use it in this way only and say where you got it.”

Copyright and Creative Commons licenses aren’t just limited to images. They apply to videos, music, content on websites, books and more.

Sources of Creative Commons images

Here are some examples of storehouses of tons of images that students can include in their reports, papers, presentations and websites:

Creative Commons Search (search.creativecommons.org) — This site gives easy access to several search engines that make Creative Commons works accessible. It’s a portal to finding Creative Commons images, video, music and other media. Its image search relies heavily on Google Images searches (set to search only Creative Commons images) or Flickr searches. I won’t include Google Images or Flickr below because I always use the Creative Commons Search when I want to access them because it’s quick and easy. (Note: Flickr is blocked by some school Internet filters, but Google Images generally is not.)

8007015362Photos For Class (photosforclass.com) — Giving accurate attribution can to Creative Commons content can be a struggle (something I’ll get to momentarily). One way to be sure you’re fairly giving credit to the author of Creative Commons images is to use Photos For Class. This site finds images from Flickr’s hundreds of thousands of Creative Commons images and automatically embeds the attribution information (i.e. author, website where it was found, link, license, etc.). The photo to the left is an example from Photos For Class. This way, even very young students can use Creative Commons images in a responsible way.

cc search gifGoogle Apps (drive.google.com) — Google gives users quick access to add a Creative Commons image to a document, slide presentation or drawing in Google Apps. Insert an image (Use “Insert > Image …” from the menu or the image icon). Then select “Search” from the tabs at the top. This search’s default setting is “labeled for commercial reuse with modification” (one of the license types we’ll see in a moment). These images insert directly into your Google file without having to leave to go to another website. (See animated GIF at right to watch it in action.)

PhotoPin (photopin.com) PhotoPin was built to give bloggers access to quality Creative Commons photos, but it can be used by anyone. It does access images through Flickr, so, again, if your school’s Internet filter blocks Flickr, this one may not work.

EveryStockPhoto (everystockphoto.com) — This site pulls photos from a variety of Creative Commons sources.

Creative Commons images aren’t the only ones students can use in their work. Photos labeled “public domain” have even fewer restrictions. The intellectual property rights for these images, according to Wikipedia, “have expired, been forfeited or are inapplicable.” Public domain photos can be inserted into any work without need for any attribution. Some sources of public domain images:

Pixabay (pixabay.com) — This site contains a variety of types of images, ranging from clip art to original photos, that are labeled “public domain.”

Wikimedia Commons (commons.wikimedia.org) — Wikimedia Commons’s well-known cousin, Wikipedia, is a free, open-source encyclopedia of sorts. Wikimedia Commons does the same for different types of media. All of Wikimedia Commons’s media is free to use under Creative Commons licenses or public domain, depending on the image.

Compfight (compfight.com) — Compfight says on its site that it is “an image search engine tailored to efficiently locate images for blogs, comps, inspiration, and research.” It searches images on Flickr and displays licensing information so you can use the images appropriately.

Different licenses and attribution

When people refer to Creative Commons, they’re not referring to a single type of license. Rather, they’re referring to a spectrum of different licenses that provide different permissions. They’re defined by these conditions:

  • Attribution: How to give credit to the author (All Creative Commons licenses require attribution)
  • Non-commercial: Whether you can profit from your use of the work
  • No derivative works: Whether you can change/modify the work
  • Share alike: Whether you can share the work under a different license

My favorite explanation of the differences is in this infographic created on Foter: http://foter.com/blog/how-to-attribute-creative-commons-photos/ In fact, I printed it out as a visual reference for my students (completely legal under the Creative Commons license placed on that infographic!).

Armed with beautiful images being used legally, think of what students can create with their own creativity! And they’ll be doing it responsibly!

Question: How have you and your students used Creative Commons images and other media? Where do you find your images? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

  1. Such a great piece to help develop good digital citizens!!! Maybe if we can dramatically improve attribution of unaltered photos, the number included in Creative Commons will go up significantly.

    A suggestion: It would be equally valuable to consider personal options students have with respect to THEIR photos and sketches…

  2. Karen is right! Unsplash is great. They even have a spot where the highlight the work of people that have used their images!
