Haiku Deck searches the Internet for high-quality images that photographers have licensed under Creative Commons, and automatically pulls in the proper attribution. Some Creative Commons images carry a "not for commercial use" restriction. If you're making a Haiku Deck for commercial use, be sure to turn on the "commercial use only" filter from the main screen.
