How to Use Flickr For Cushing Materials
- To search these images, make sure you select the icon of a magnifying glass halfway down the page and to the right.
This will ensure that you are only searching within Cushing’s Flickr, rather than all of Flickr. This will bring up a blue block within the larger search box at the top of the page that reads “Cushing Memorial… | Photos.” Make sure this blue box shows up before you do any searching for images; otherwise, you will be searching all of Flickr.
You may also browse images by viewing albums on various subjects.
- Click on the item you want to view.
The image you selected will appear on the page with metadata below.
- Save the image.
If you would like to have a copy of the digital file, you may select the download button (just under the image on the right).
