Creative Commons licences provide a simple standardised way for individual creators, companies and institutions to share their work with others on flexible terms without infringing copyright. The licences allow users to reuse, remix and share the content legally.

Offering your work under a Creative Commons licence does not mean giving up your copyright. It means permitting users to make use of your material in various ways, but only on certain conditions.

One of the quickest ways to find images is in photo libraries that store images in the public domain.

1. Search at least one of the photo libraries (listed under Resources) for an image. Be sure the image is listed as CC-0, freely available on the public domain.

2. Upload the image to your blog, using the attached resource as a guide.

3. If you’d like to remix an image – adapt it in some way, experiment with a site such as Canva or Adobe Spark to add text or other design components to your image.

Example for "Finding images in the public domain":
