Flickr hacks

By Steve Outing

I love Flickr. If you’ve used the photo service (now owned by Yahoo!), I’ll be surprised if you don’t too. A great thing about Flickr is its API, which allows programmers to gather and parse data from Flickr and incorporate it into their own applications. (An example of that is on this very blog; click the Photos tab at the top of the page to see my Flickr photos within this blog.)

Michael Carole of WebMonkey has compiled his “Ten Best Flickr Mashups.” Some fun stuff here, including Captioner, which lets you put a cartoon text balloon inside a photo on Flickr. Enjoy!
