Dear Google Images…Thanks!

Garment Workers

Google has adjusted their image search tools with a new “Usage Rights” filtering option. This means users can more easily search for images for both use and reuse, under such licenses as the Creative Commons (CC).

All SA content is fully CC licensed, and while finding CC licensed images before Google made this small change was manageable, I have already noticed a significant drop in time spent looking for that perfect CC licensed photo for reuse in projects.

This is such great news for educators and creators looking to remix content!

Happy searching, making and sharing, friends!
