Wylio Takes Aggravation Out Of Blog Images

Have you ever found yourself stumped trying to find a blog image that is freely available to use? How about getting an image to look just right on your blog? New service Wylio (link here) has got your back on this one. You can search their massive database for free Creative Commons images – a search for bacon got me 10,412 images. Then use Wylio’s editor to size and position the image. Once that is done, copy the code from Wylio and paste it into your blog. Wylio automatically sizes the image, hosts the image, and builds the photo credit into the code.

Wylio gets its photos from the millions of Flickr images that have been designated as Creative Commons works by the uploader. While this isn’t fool proof (let’s face it, there are lots of caddish people out there), your chances are pretty good the picture may be used free and clear.

It’s a free service that definitely fills a useful niche, and fills it well. If you struggle with blog images, Wylio may just be your answer. For a fun read, check out developer Dan’s story here.
