How to let students safely look for photos on the internet

This could be mighty useful. I am in the habit of turning off the projector or turning my laptop away from students when I am looking for an image, but one day I might forget. Photos For Class is an attempt to save Teachers from all that stress plus allows students to safely look for images themselves.

It was created by the people behind StoryBoard That, an online storyboard creator, which I definitely need to look at another time. The images are sourced from flickr, with high safety settings. Photos For Class then apply their own filters, and even check the most popular images.

It will search for properly attributed, Creative Commons photos for school. When you download the image (rather than dragging it from browser to folder as I tend to do), it will automatically add to the image the following, and see pink cat photo as an example.

The name of the author
The name of the photo
A link to the original photo
The name and type of license along with a link to read it

The full downloaded image is full sized, so will in general need resizing.
