Free to Use Open Images from Creative Commons


Are you an educator looking to use images that are not copyrighted?  Two big announcements from Creative Commons worth your attention:

New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art releases 375,000 digital works for remix and re-use online

"Today, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York announces that all public domain images in its collection will be shared under CC0, expanding their digital collection by over 375,000 images as well as providing data on over 420,000 museum objects spanning more than 5,000 years. CC0 allows anyone to use, re-use, and remix a work without restriction.

From Creative Commons CEO Ryan Merkley, 'the largest museum in the United States has eliminated the barriers that would otherwise prohibit access to its content, and invited the world to use, remix, and share their public domain collections widely and without restriction.' ”

 CC Image Search

 Additionally,  CC has a new Image Search engine available in Beta - search the Met's images, along with other creative commons licensed images, to find an open image.
