Free image search engine is coming to WordPress.org. Now you can integrate CC Search, a CC0 (Creative Commons Zero) with your WordPress.org website to use with over 500 million openly licensed and public domain images discoverable from over 50 sources, audios and videos.
From Matt Mullenweg’s blog,
“I am a long-time supporter of Creative Commons and their influential work on open content licenses, and when we heard they were considering shutting down their CC Search engine we immediately starting exploring ways we could keep it going. I am eager to give a new home to their open search product on WordPress.org in continued commitment to open source freedoms, and providing this community resource for decades to come. This is an important first step to provide a long-term, sustainable challenger to proprietary libraries like Unsplash.
Automattic has hired key members of the CC Search team and will sponsor their contributions as part of our Five for the Future commitment. I look forward to seeing the project grow and welcome them to the WordPress community! Will share in a few weeks when everything is live and running on the site”
