Why can't I download Flickr photos for free? I constantly default to using Wiki Commons.
There's tons of photos on Flickr that you're allowed to use for free under Creative Commons licensing. Here's the Flickr page that explains how it works. You need to give a link and/or credit line, though.

Chrisinhawaii, I will read up on it again. Every time I've tried I was not able to save the photo. I must be doing something wrong. Thank you!
Go here. http://www.flickr.com/search/advanced/
enter search term
choose photos only
