Flickr Addicts Unite!

Flickr Leech

Flickr.com is widely know as one of the web’s best photo sharing comunities. And people like myself, can lose hours upon hours in there just using the search or “interestingness” feature to look at countless photos people from all over the globe have taken and posted in their accounts.

I’d like to call attention to a “hack” that Andrew Houser has developed by tweaking the Flickr API so that instead of only viewing 50-100 pictures at a time on the Flickr website, you can use his interface at Flicker Leech to view up 200 thumbnails of photos from users public accounts at a time. All you have to do is type in a search word(s) and the thumbnails will display. Click on the thumb, and it will take you to the full size photo in the users public account.

This is an excellent utility in my opinion, and I am thankful to Andrew for creating it. It sure beats crawling through the Flickr website all night, where you can grab thumbs in half the time with Flickr Leech!
