    Under which license can we use the pictures from WIKI COMMONS without any legal hassle?

    There are many categories in WIKI COMMONS. Please suggest which categories are free to use

    All the images in Wiki Commons are free to use legally...it's only about attribution.

    The ones under Public Domain don't require you to attribute to the source to legally use the image.

    You can search any image by keyword.

    Just click on the image you want to use,

    Click on 'Use this image on web' ( you'll find it either above or on the right side of the  image)

    Now, You can see on screen all the information you've to use to properly link to the source of the image.

    Just fill the required information while using the image and there'll be no legal hassle.

    You'll note that the images under public domain say 'Attribution not legally required'...but I personally do attribute.

    Hope it helps.

      Your last comment is critical -- attribute liberally on creative commons work to err on the side of caution.  It doesn't do any harm to attribute work and the creators are being good enough to share.
