Fun with Flickr

Tips & Tools

I’m addicted to image searching; Google used to be my drug of choice, but Flickr is fast replacing it. I’m a very visual person, so when I want to see kitchen sinks I refuse to wade through paragraphs of marketing-speak to get to the product shot.

Flickr and FlickrStorm

Lately, I’ve taken to searching Flickr using keywords like “victorian interior” and “picket fence”. You get some junk, but you also get some real gems. The results are almost always worth sorting through, and if you have a Flickr account you can “tag” your favorites so you’ll always be able to find them.

Today, I came across another fun way to search Flickr, via a cool little third party tool called FlickrStorm. It has a really nice (and quick loading) live search, and you can start your own “tray” (or lightbox). The tray allows you to grab your favorites, then download them all at once when you’re done browsing.

This is a great way to start your inspiration scrapbook -try something like “kitchen renovation” for fun results!

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
