How do I embed images from Flickr Creative Commons in the Rich Content Editor?

You can use the Rich Content Editor to embed images from Flickr Creative Commons. You can also add alt tags to your images for better accessibility.

When searching for images on Flickr, search results display images with a Creative Commons public domain license.

The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus). If a change is made to the source of your image after it has been embedded, the image you have added to the Rich Content Editor will not be changed.

Note: Although an image may appear in the Flickr Creative Commons, not all images have the same license. Some Flickr images require an attribution to appear within the image. You may want to confirm the image copyright before using it in your course. Click the image to view it directly on Flickr.
