Love it, love it, LOVE IT!!

Need help finding images for use in blog posts?  Check out this great review (via Sites and Soundbytes) of Wylio, a service that searches for Creative Commons images and then helps you format them for use on a blog or webpage.

The images in my post are a couple of examples of the end result.  See the credit in gray at the bottom with links back to the source and the original image?   And the caption that appears if you hover over the image?  Wylio did the heavy lifting.  I selected the size and how I wanted the image centered and Wylio provided the appropriate html code -- fantastically easy for people like me who are HTML-challenged.

Pretty nifty!
