One of the more common complaints I hear from my clients is, “I want to use pictures on my site, but I don’t know where to get them for free…legally.” To their credit, every last one of my clients who’ve asked me about adding more photos and images to their sites has voiced concern about adhering to copyright laws.

Well, kiss that problem goodbye by installing the Photo Dropper plugin!

Now you can easily add Creative Commons licensed photos – images that are licensed for shared use – to your posts – right from your dashboard with just 1 click. (If you’re running a commercial blog, read this article to make sure you’re clear how Creative Commons works and what you’re allowed to do with Creative Commons photos.)

It’s a pretty cool plugin for a couple of reasons:

  1. You can search for photos using keywords related to your post content, making the process of finding relevant images for your posts a breeze.
  2. You can choose small, medium, or large sizes, just like at Flickr. A couple of clicks and your picture’s in your post!

You might have to play with your image alignment a little bit, depending on the size of the image you choose, but other than that, it’s a great tool for adding relevant images to your posts!
