For a brilliant Creative Commons image searcher for bloggers, go to Wylio. It finds images, formats them for your post (you can adjust it easily) and then gives youthe embed code – with citations!

With all resources, please do not save and re-upload them to the public internet – they get edited regularly and I prefer my work online to be the best possible versions. It is OK to save files to host on internal servers, with citation.
