Creates a search link for photos on Flickr having a given set of keywords in their descriptions, and either a CC-BY (attribution) or CC-BY-SA (attribution and ShareAlike) license making them suitable to upload to Commons using Flinfo. Syntax:

{{Flickr free|keywords}}

This template allows Wikimedia Commons editors to document their searches for free photos on Flickr, by saving calls to the template on user pages, talk pages, and other project pages. This provides several benefits, including:

  • One can repeat a search at some time in the future, when Flickr will possibly have accumulated more photos.
  • One can keep track of searches one has already tried, to avoid accidental repetition.
  • One can communicate what one has done to other users.
