Giving Credit for Photos Using Creative Commons

When you want to use someone else’s photo, video, or music that you find on the internet, you have to give credit to the person who created it. One way to make sure you do that correctly is to use Creative Commons licensed images. Click here to read more than you ever wanted to know about how to do that. Or, watch this video, then I’ll lead you through a good way to make sure you are giving proper credit using Flickr and Compfight.

Now that you have a better idea of what Creative Commons is, let’s post a picture to your blog using Flickr and Compfight to make sure it’s properly credited. Sue Waters gives step by step directions about how to do that at her edublogs post. Click here!

Below are a few examples of ones I credited using Compfight. You will post one you find on your blog so I can see it.
