wpid-5678259049_9557cb81c8_b.jpgBig news for writers! Medium.com has partnered up with Creative Commons, which means we might soon have access to some new free images to use with our articles and blog posts.

According to the company’s website, its authors “have always owned the rights to the original content they publish here. However, some have argued persuasively for the ability to choose a license for their work other than All rights reserved.”

“It may seem esoteric, but there is significant value in this,” the site continues.  “Ideas are most useful when they’re built upon and combined with others. Stories gain new life when they’re remixed, reinterpreted, and retold. We want to facilitate that on Medium.”

Today, in conjunction with Creative Commons, we’re happy to announce support for explicit post licensing on Medium.

I’m working on a comprehensive list of free-to-use photos to share with you as a resource on this site, but in the meantime, I just found a really nice one over at Author Media. Check it out right here.
