Images Resources Becomes Unbalanced

But it’s a good thing!

Earlier this summer, I shared a Symbaloo mix that I had created of the Images Resources that I’d gathered from here and there.  It is my go-to spot when I need an image for a particular reason.  I worked very hard to make sure that it was balanced so that it just looked nice when displayed in Symbaloo.

But, life goes on…

Recently, I discovered another incredible collection of images.  This time, the collection consists of 12 million-ish copyright free historic images.  Read the article above to find more about the collection plus the use of OCR to tag the images.  We know how important tagging is to find anything.  It’s also so humbling to think that there are really smart people using their skills to help the rest of us.

The problem is – where do I put it in my Symbaloo collection?

I decided to bite the bullet and extend my beautifully balanced collection by another row.

That bottom row does look a little lame at this point. 

But, I look at it this way.

This resource was just too good not to add.

I know that there will be more to come.

The actual URL hasn’t changed so if you’ve added this to your own Symbaloo collection, you don’t need to change a thing.  If not, create your own account and add it from there.

In the meantime, and most importantly, I now have quick and easy access to this collection of historical images.
