Flickr is an image and video-hosting website and web services suite. In addition to being a popular website for users to share and embed personal photographs, and effectively an online community, the service is widely used by photo researchers and by bloggers to host images that they embed in blogs and social media. Flikr also has an advanced search function to allow searching for images that are under creative commons license.
