While there are multitudes of pictures on Flickr, do remember that many of them are not free for you to use as you like. Many of these pictures are copyrighted and the only permissions you have are to view them on the Flickr site. However, if you want to use some pictures from Flickr in a commercial project, or if you want to edit or modify them for subsequent use, then, you'll find the Creative Commons licensing that Flickr uses as a godsend. Follow these steps to search copyright-free content on Flickr:

  1. Open the Flickr site in your web browser. On the home page itself, you'll find a Search box (highlighted in red in Figure 1).
  2. Search box in Flickr home page

  3. Within the Search box, type in the keywords you want to search for, and click the prominent Search button as shown in Figure 2, below.
  4. Type keyword to search
    Figure 2: Type keyword to search
  5. This will open the resultant page with all the pictures related to the keyword(s) used, as shown in Figure 3, below. The pictures you see on this page are not copyright-free. To get to copyright-free pictures, you need to go through some more steps.
  6. Search result based on keyword

  7. Click the Advanced Search option (highlighted in red), as shown in Figure 4.
  8. Advanced Search option

  9. In the resultant page, scroll down to the section called Creative Commons, and select all the three checkboxes that you can see in Figure 5. Click the Search button again.
  10. All the three checkboxes selected within creative commons section

  11. This shows you all copyright-free pictures on Flickr based on the keyword(s) you have searched for. The gray strip below the Search box indicates that all the pictures shown on this page are copyright-free under the Creative Commons license.

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
