Lifehacker: Search Flickr Better With Google Images

Lifehacker: Search Flickr Better With Google Images. “At a for-profit editorial outlet like Lifehacker, when we need an image for our posts, we can’t just do a Google image search and slap up the first result. We have to use properly licensed photos. Sometimes we use our own original photos, sometimes Getty images that we pay for, sometimes the millions of Flickr photos licensed for free use through Creative Commons. But since 2014, Google Images has also let users filter photos by license. And unlike Flickr, Google Images uses the most sophisticated search algorithms on the planet. So it can unearth some Flickr photos that even Flickr can’t.”
