6 Surprisingly Easy Steps To Filter Flickr To Download Free Images!


Looking for an appropriate image to use on your article makes a big difference. It makes your article more convincing and valuable to audiences. Some readers look at the image and title you put up, if they do not add up, their interest is gone and they are off to look for another interesting content.

Several sites offer rich collection of images; however, most of them are not free to use. Not even on Google Image. Flickr is one of the few sites that offer vast collections of copyrighted and free photographs. Yes, you read that right, free photographs! It is surprisingly easy to set up Flickr to filter non-copyrighted materials. Let me show you how.

How To Search for FREE IMAGES on Flickr

1. Go to (no need to sign up) and type “autumn” in the search box on the upper right hand corner;
2. Click “Advanced Search”

3. On the Advanced Search page check “Photos” under Search by Content Type;

4. Select “Only Photos” under Select Media Type;
5. And finally, check all ( 3 ) boxes under Creative Commons:

  • Only Search within Creative Commons licensed content
  • Find content to use commercially
  • Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon

6. Click “Search” to look for FREE “Autumn” IMAGES.

All images shown after hitting SEARCH should return Creative Commons-licensed content. This means you are now able to download them for your work. A word of caution, you need to familiarize yourself with Creative-Commons license types and how they must be attributed, before using these images on your article.

Some people find Flickr intimidating to use. Most search end up with copyright materials that either requires permission from the original creator or is totally not for public use. There is an alternative site that you can go to where you can directly specify what type of Creative-Commons license you prefer. Fickr Storm is an alternative site that links back all photographs to Flickr but allows you to set which type of Creative-Commons license to look for.
