  • Photo Pin Lets You Use Flickr Images Easily, Cares For Licences

    photopin-homepage-w640-w550

    We all need images more often than not. Be it to illustrate that new recipe in your favorite cooking forum or be it to have that blog post look more interesting. It is not exactly difficult to find images around the webs. But there are strings attached. If you are not aiming solely for pictures in the Public Domain (the platform Pixabay is for you, if you do), you will always be confronted with having to care for the licensing. Specialized platforms, such as Fotolia, try to make that task as easy as possible. They tell you explicitly, under which licence you can use any given image from inside their service and how you would have to attribute it. But, wouldn’t it be much nicer, if you could harvest the ever-growing Flickr portfolio, too? I know you theoretically can. I mean, practically…

  • Another Random Serving of Icon Sets…

  • Find Your Perfect Match: Collection of Free Thematic Social Icons Sets

    Leather Social Icons Set by Sylvain Guizard

    How many times have you stumbled into a website that captivates you with its unique, remarkable design, where every functional part shines with originality? Then, when you decide to follow this creative person you suddenly discover that social media icons are just ordinary squares with recognizable colors and logos that barely fit into the whole composition. And as a result the overall effect fades away, the first impression proves wrong. It would seem that such a tiny thing as set of 32 px sized icons can’t bring disharmony, but as all we know, good design depends on attention to the details.
