Are you tired of the time it takes you and your students to find high-quality free images?
Check out Behold™! Behold™ is a search engine for high-quality Flickr images. It searches images based on visual concepts in pictures. For example, when I typed in “city” I got several pages of fabulous pictures but not all of them were quite what I was expecting. Behold™ offers a way to refine your search by choosing from a menu of filters for what the image should “look like.”
So, in addition to my original search for “city” images, I also chose three different filters: building, people, and silhouette. Each time I changed the filter, my results changed.
