Because copying and pasting images is so easy now, we often neglect to give credit to the creators of the images we use.  As teachers we need to be model good attribution behavior for out students.

Finding and attributing photos from Flickr is easy to do with a tool called Imagecodr. On the home page of this site, you can click the Search tab to find photos.  To provide attribution in your blog or website, you click the Get Code! tab and enter the URL of the photo you wish to use.  Use the code displayed to put the image and the complete attribution information on your blog.or website.

I was looking for an image of threads to use when discussing Voice Threads.  The image above with the CC licsnse and link is the result using the code from Imagcodr.
