If, like me, you have images that you want to be shared and reused by the rest of the world – you can now choose to license your Instagram images under Creative Commons license. Sure you could have probably stated this in your profile, but with i-am-cc.org, your images can now be added to a central database so that they can be found more easily by other users or people looking for images to use.
Do keep in mind that by joining i-am-cc.org, your images will be in the system for a minimum of 3 months, even if you change your mind. Sharing your images must be something that you want to be doing. So maybe rethink if you’re the instacanv.as or wanting to monetise your images in any way.
All creative commons options are available, I’ve personally chosen to license my stream (username: mixy) as Creative Commons – Non-Commercial.
Here are some of the images shared freely by Instagram users:
