There are lots of reasons you might need to find Creative Commons images. Last year, we introduced you to five great places to find Creative Commons images, with the list including heavyweights like Flickr and Google Image Search, along with a few more services you might not have heard of. Today we’re updating that list, and adding 5 more services that take the hard work out of finding Creative Commons images.
One of the biggest buzzwords in the online design world in the past two or three years has to be ‘Responsive.’ With the advent of browsing on everything from a 4 inch smartphone screen to a 27 inch display, it can be difficult to make sure that your website or blog looks good no matter what. That’s why a responsive design is essential because it can automatically detect what device you’re using to access the site, and adjust it to fit the size of your screen.
While WordPress, Blogger and Tumblr dominate the blogging scene, there are a few minimalist platforms that strip down the blogging experience to focus entirely on simply sharing your writing. Roon keeps things simple, all blogs are responsive (meaning you can view blog posts on your smartphone, for example, and it adjusts to the reader’s device), and couldn’t be easier to use.
With Google unveiling a completely revamped Maps, now available to all, creating your own maps has become easier than ever.

The new Google Maps features makes map creation easier than ever, and with Google’s solid sharing settings, you have complete control over who sees the maps.
There are more than a few apps that make it easy to add text to images using nothing more than your iPhone. The convenience of taking a picture, adding personal touches using an app on your device and then share it in a matter of seconds from the palm of your hand cannot be denied. Whether you want to create a creative watermark, your own greeting cards, or just fancy more interesting graphics for your blog or site, you can get all of that done using the following three apps.
Neither Vine nor Instagram offer a good way to search and find videos., but there are a few ways to search for Instagram and Vine videos from the comfort of your computer. We’ve already introduced you to 5 unofficial ways to watch Vine videos, and now we’re adding to that list, and throwing in a few extra options for Instagram only. With all the creative ways people are using Vine and Instagram, these services make it a little bit easier to uncover the best videos created on each app.
Another major update seen in Instagram since it was acquired by Facebook is the addition of Video updates in June. Are you using Instagram video? Do you know how to shoot a good one? Everything you need to know about how Instagram videos work — how to shoot them, how to get creative with them, how to make sure your videos get more attention, can be found in this post.
Ever find yourself with a ton of tabs and Word documents open, but then have to reboot your computer? Whether it’s an update or a new app that requires a reboot, rather than put it off, or bookmark a bunch of tabs you only need for the time-being, Cupcloud will actually temporarily save your tabs, documents and more, and restore them with a simple click of the button. Cupcloud goes beyond saving just website tabs in your browser and extends to the desktop itself.
Flickr is best known as one of the easiest ways to share and store your photos online. We’ve come up with a few unique ways you can get more out of Flickr that go beyond photo sharing. Whether it’s preparing for your travels, furnishing a new home, learning a little bit about history, or more, Flickr has you covered.
There is certainly no shortage of blogging platforms available to users for free. WordPress and Tumblr alone are a great way to keep a blog, but there are a few creative alternatives out there. A new blogging service Postach.io can now be added to the mix. The easy-to-use blogging platform allows users to create a blog in minutes, powered by the versatile note-taking app, Evernote.
Foursquare is one of those apps that you either love or hate, and many feel it is just another part of the oversharing culture of our online Instagram, Facebook and Twitter lives, where everything we do finds a home on the Internet. While there is something to be said for cautious (or private) Foursquare sharing, there is also something to be said for harnessing all that data that you’re saving. Here are six ideas that will help you put all those check-ins to good use.
When the Lytro camera was announced it sounded like it was either the best thing since sliced bread, or too good to be true. If you can afford it, why wouldn’t you want to own a camera that allows you refocus the image long after you’ve taken it? At $399 for the 8GB model, it’s not necessarily something that all of us can afford. That’s why we were pretty excited to find out about FocusTwist, the $1.99 iPhone app claims to be able to do what a $400 camera can do.
As Google Reader has shut down its RSS reader, there has been a lot of talk about where to go next. Many alternatives have been suggested, and Feedly seems to be one of the most popular options to have benefited from Google’s decision. That said, there is another service which recently launched its public beta and might be worth giving a spin. Noowit is not a traditional RSS reader by any means.
Online shopping makes it easier than ever to get a good deal. We’ve put together a short guide on how to get the best price on just about anything you might be looking for online. And remember, to be a conscious consumer, you also should do a little bit of research to make sure that your good deal really is a good deal.

A variety of show-and-tell websites encourage users to share photos that give a glimpse into their lives, without giving away too much.
