The majority of photos I upload online are uploaded to my Flickr account. I now have over 8,500 photos there and all of them have a commercial creative commons licence, meaning they can be used by pretty much anyone. Technically under that licence attribution is required but i really don’t care about attribution, i find it fascinating seeing how and where people use my images but of course it’s nice to get credit for them too…
Over the past few days and weeks i’ve built up a huge army of cool webmaster related links. Here’s 21 of my favourite…
1. Kuler – http://kuler.adobe.com/
Kuler is without doubt one of the best palette / colour tools you can have… i’ve yet to really use it, but you can see for yourself the colours all compliment each other.

This is an awesome application for creating those backgrounds… not only can you create them, but you can steal other people’s too
