The Answer to Image Search: Seen Compfight Yet?

Images.  They give life and color to our blog posts and our websites.

And when they’re bright and cute like the one on the left, they make us smile, too.

Licenses, searching, image sites… that can drain the life right out of an inspired idea… and suck up hours of time…

Enter Compfight.

With one search and a few clicks you can find images that have been shared under the license you want.

  1. Great info as always Michelle, I constantly struggle with this challenge of finding relevant images. Thanks for your selfless help for us “rookies” ;-)

    1. You’re not alone. If I’m not careful finding the right image can take me as long as writing the post. lol Especially on Flickr trying to check licenses, so I really like this search tool.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing Compfight! It’s perfect! I use Zemanta, but I often can’t find an image to go with what I want.
