CCFinder - Features
What is CCFinder doing?
CCFinder is short for Creative Commons Finder and it finds pictures published under the Creative Commons License. This means that you can easily search for pictures that you can re-publicize or share without breaking law or having to pay money. CCFinder also explains what you may do with each picture and what to keep in mind when doing so.
Find pictures by Keywords
Find and download pictures with a creative commons license from Flickr based on your search terms. Define how you want to use the picture (commercially, if you want to change it, etc.) and only find pictures with appropriate licenses.
Find pictures with the correct license
CCFinder shows you how pictures are licensed. This way you can ensure if you are allowed to republish the picture and how it is allowed to be used.
Profit by useful features
CCFinder allows you to put a color filter on the picture to change its looks. It shows you which license a picture is published with, how you may use it and what you need to keep in mind when doing so. You can download pictures, go to the source in the internet or directly use it as your desktop wallpaper.

Finding pictures you may use shouldn't be so hard! Easy to use, nicely animated and already using Microsoft's Windows 8 Metro style, CCFinder exactly does what you want instead of the other way round. Quickly scan pictures in the overview or examine interesting pictures in the detail view.
