Companies looking for eye-catching images to use on their websites and in their internet marketing campaigns can now find them using a new filter from Yahoo!.

The search engine has launched a Creative Commons license filter within its Image Search that allows users to identify pictures from Flickr that can be used commercially or modified.

In a post on the Yahoo! Search blog, Polly Ng and Anuj Sahai from Yahoo! Image Search said the search engine is proud to be the first to offer this capability.

"By launching the Creative Commons license search with Flickr and making it available to all our Yahoo! Image Search users, we aim to promote reusable work and to be transparent about the guidelines issued by the creator of a particular image," they remarked.

The new search filter is one of a number of new features being rolled out by Yahoo! for internet users and companies advertising on the web.

It has also recently expanded its Smart Ads programme, allowing companies to customise their display ads to suit the needs of different audiences.
