Yahoo announced that it has added images from Flickr that are available for re-use or re-posting under Creative Commons terms to it Image Search results. This includes tens of millions of photos.

To access these images, simply go to Yahoo Image Search, and search like normal, then if you want to use something, just select the "labeled for reuse" filter on the left-hand side, then hover over the thumbnail to see details about the photo (including the photographer's name).

Then, just click on the thumbnail to view the image. You can see the specific Creative Commons license terms for the image by clicking "attribution". You can also see more pics from that particular photographer if you click "i".

The feature is available on the desktop version as well as on mobile devices and tablets.

This is a welcome addition to search results for bloggers, and anyone writing on the web on a regular basis, who is on the lookout for interesting usable images for articles and posts.
