Yahoo is announcing today via its blog that its search engine will now include image search results from its very own image hosting and video hosting service, Flickr. This is definitely good news, since this will make it easier for all Yahoo users to find and share photos on the web. Basically, the newly added feature on its search engine will allow users to browse through photos from Flickr - photos that are essentially available for re-use or re-posting under its Creative Commons terms.
“Tens of millions of photos are now yours to search and share, courtesy of all the amazing photographers in the Flickr community,” says Yahoo. To check out the feature, just visit Yahoo! Image Search and search for a query. If, for example, you are looking for a nice photo that can be re-used, simply select the “Labeled for Reuse” filter on the left side of the page to view the re-usable photos. You can also check out the specific Creative Commons license terms by clicking the “Attribution” link. Yahoo says that this cool and nifty feature is available on the web version and mobile version.
