We're Daniel & Anna, Pimpampum team.
Since 2005, we've developed several tools using Flickr API. We don't create them with commercial purposes and we offer free to you all. So, go, play, and enjoy! :)
You can play with:
And a draft:
We build this tools, as we say in spanish, por amor al arte (for love to art?). So, they are like they are. We'd love to be rich and spend all our time developing new functionalities, in fact we're very happy when we receive a mail suggesting new ones.
So, if you like them and want us to spend more time to our tools, consider donating. We have a fantastic Paypal account to do that:
Some people find that their images are being used in our tools. But... why?
You might know that Flickr provides developers the tools and methods to create new programs using their images via their Flickr API. As they say:
Flickr has an open Application Programming Interface (API for short).
This means that anyone can write their own program to present public Flickr data (like photos, video, tags, profiles or groups) in new and different ways. There's a long list of API methods available to you to work with, and we love it when this happens, so... go forth and play!
We love this too and we contribute with our tools. It's nice to create new links to images, a more connected WWW, sharing contents, building new ones... what is called (and called, and called, and called... web 2.0). And we love when teachers use our tools in their classroom to teach (we never exepected this).
So, we're not bad people stealing images, we just search using TAG or USER and Flickr gives us a list of images matching this search. Then, we just link them, we never store them on our servers. And when we show them we link back to your Flickr page, we credit you.
So, if you don't want to see your images in our (lovely) tools we recommend to restrict your privacy settings on your Flickr account, not allowing to be searchable by Flickr API. (or make them private or delete them: do you really want to use a sharing service like Flickr? perhaps they might be in your computer password-protected...).
We don't want to be responsible of your nightmares, so if you're still very angry and you can't sleep at nights because one of your (public and searchable) images has been used in our tools, write us, and tell the URL is annoying you. We'll delete it :)
