An image search feature that’s often used by bloggers and other content producers has found its way back to Yahoo Image Search.
The company announced yesterday that its Creative Commons/Flickr search filter is available again, and that it’s been expanded to image searches on mobile devices, too.
The filter is available at the bottom of the left-hand options menu; clicking “Labeled for Reuse” limits the search results to Flickr images that aren’t protected as “All Rights Reserved.”
But a Yahoo spokesperson tells us that the filter was retired when Yahoo began having its search results powered by Bing.
While it was gone — and still today — Yahoo continued to offer Creative Commons filtering in searches right on Flickr’s website.
