New app makes it easier than ever to scour Creative Commons
Sourcing free-for-use photos just became easier.
If you’re a journalist or blogger who regularly needs original, photographic content to provide context and spice up your updates online, you’ll be glad to hear the good news: As always, there’s an app for that.
Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization geared toward legal and extensive creative content sharing, made something called The List, and its main purpose is to make requesting free and publicly available images easier. Through the app, users may provide names of people, things, events, and locations they need photos of. Photographers that are on the scene or are available to cater to such requests may use the app to claim listings, and then later publish the photos on the platform. Every photo made available on The List is considered free for public use.
While people can easily conduct searches for open licensed pictures through the Creative Commons website, the app lets photographers supply specific needs directly. It can also serve as an easy method to come up with entries for photo-a-day projects.
To install, go into your phone’s security settings and enable Unknown Sources; this will allow installation of .apk files. Download the .apk file from The List on your computer.
Connect your Android device via USB cable and transfer the file to your phone’s Download folder. After disconnecting your phone from your computer, launch your phone’s File Manager app, find the Download folder, and click on the transferred .apk file. Tap on Install when prompted and grant the necessary permissions.
