Geek Tip: Browse Flickr Photos With Style

Trolling through photo archives on Flickr is always entertaining, whether the photographer is your aunt Betty or a stranger who lives in Kazakhstan, but it can start to feel a little linear and boring after any good online photography cruise. If you are interested in spicing up your digital photo browsing, check out Masable's 11 Craziest Ways To Browse Flickr Photos list. My favorites on the list include:

  • retrievr: Allows you to try and find a photo on Flickr by drawing it. It's a combination of Pictonary and third grade sketches - and it's always entertaining.
  • Spell With Flicker: A favorite on TeamSugar and geek, this app allows you to spell out your name or favorite word in Flickr letters.
  • Depictr: If it's music that you love, you can type in your favorite song lyrics and get nine Flickr images that somehow correspond to the lyrics. (The picture above came from the search of "Lucy in the sky with diamonds.")

I spend FAR too much time on flickr as it is, please stop feeding my addiction! =) I have just run out of free photo space right now and am looking into alternative solutions. None are as good as flickr though! =( I may have to pony up for a full subscription. Ho hum. I think it is totally worth it though. =)
