Visual Resources + Flickr (Part I)

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Did you know you can search and add images from Flickr into your Visual Resources Collection media groups? Flickr is a rich resource with millions of images to choose from, ranging graphic design to scientific imaging to historical artifacts. Or perhaps you have your own Flickr account? You can use your Flickr account as a quick way to load your own images into your Luna presentations.

3-Easy Steps: Accessing Your Flickr Account in Luna

1) After logging in or creating an account,  under the “Explore” tab, select “External Media Search”

Alternatively, you can use the username search to find the collections of participants in the Flickr Commons, a collection of unknown or out of copyright images from libraries and archives across the world.
