Photo Pin is a newly developed website offering images which may assist students in locating photos for various projects. The site utilizes Flickr, API for Creative Commons search and Fotolia's image library to provide royalty-free images. With Photo Pin, you type your topic in the search box and preview the photo. The site provides two options for you:
- Pay for Photo ($costs$)
- Creative Commons Photos via Flickr (free to use, link required)
Should you use the Creative Commons Photos option, a dialog box appears providing you with a nice array of image sizes to download, a HTML code to add to a blog post, as well as, a link citing the source of that image. A necessary component many of us and our student forget to do! If you get a chance, check out Photo Pin!
