HOW TO ADD FLICKR CREATIVE COMMONS ATTRIBUTION IN CANVAS PART 1: SETUP • Open your Google Chrome browser. If you don’t already have it, download it from https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/ • Add the OpenAttribute extension to Chrome. Search for it at the Chrome Web store at https://chrome.google.com/webstore . Click on the OpenAttribute title and then click on the blue Free button to add it to Chrome. PART 2: FIND AND INSERT IMAGE FROM FLICKR • Open and login to your Canvas account. Go to the specific Canvas page where you want to insert a Flickr image. • If you are a faculty member and are editing the page and inserting an image, click on the page’s Edit button. If you are a student and want to include an image in your Discussion, click in the Reply box. • Click at the place on the page where you want to insert a Flickr image. • Click on the Embed Image icon (the tree) on the Canvas editing bar. • When the Insert/Edit Image – Image Source window opens, click on the Flickr tab. • Enter your search term(s) in the Find Creative Commons images on Flickr search box and then click on the Search icon button (magnifying glass). • Click on the desired image and then click on the blue Update button. This should insert the selected image into your Canvas page. PART 3: ADD BASIC CREATIVE COMMONS ATTRIBUTION • Right-click on the image on your Canvas page and then left-click on the Open link in new tab option. This will open a new tab in the Chrome browser showing your selected image as it appears on the Flickr website. Click on the new tab. • Click on the black Get Attribution Info icon (a person between two sets of parentheses) that is located before the white star at the right end of the address bar in the Chrome browser. Be patient - it may take a few seconds for the attribution icon to appear. • When the window opens that has info about the image, click on the grey More Information button. • The window will now show additional information including a box with Basic Attribution. Copy (highlight, right-click, Copy) the text from the Basic Attribution box and paste it (click insertion point, right-click, Paste) under the Flickr image you just inserted in your Canvas page in the other Chrome tab. • Correct any formatting errors. For example, add a blank space before the word Author and a blank space at the end of the text you pasted. This will create two blue web links in the attribution text. • Click on the blue Save button at the bottom of the Canvas page. You now have a Flickr image with proper basic attribution on your Canvas page. NOTES • This process may not work with all Flickr images. • For more info, go to http://openattribute.com/first-run-chrome/
