Wylio is another addition to the various image search tools that you can find on Internet that trawl through Flickr and return images covered by a creative commons license. What makes Wylio different to something like FlickrCC is that it is designed with bloggers in mind, and gives you quick access to an embed code that automatically sizes the image and builds the photo credit into the code.
So for example, you type in a keyword, Wylio shows you lots of images that match that keyword. Clicking on an image will bring up a box that lets you choose the size and positioning of the image within your text with a preview of how it will look. A “Get the code” button lets you get the code which you can then post into the HTML of your blog or wiki page (or VLE object).
And you end up with something like this:
It’s quick and painless to use, and makes attributing images to their original source a lot easier. Go check out Wylio today and see what you think!
