Flickr is a web site for pictures and images. Currently run by Yahoo, it is a great respository for photos and images a person has taken or owns that can be made available for people to find, and use. Google indexes a great majority of the images so they can be found easily in a Google search. You can retain copyright, or if you wish you can put images into Creative Commons, which means they can be used on other sites by others. There are some Creative Commons images from a few Flickr users in this wiki as a result, for example.
