Flickr is an online photo management and sharing application that aims to help people make their photos available to the people who matter to them, and to enable new ways of organizing and searching photos. For the SNOUT website we created a Flickr group called SnoutLondon where images of the construction of the carnival costumes as well as pictures taken during the walk could be posted. Ning's PHP API means just a few lines of code needed to be added to the SNOUT website to create a connection to Flickr. On loading, the SNOUT site searches Flickr for images tagged with the word 'snoutLondon' and displays the ten most recent photos with this tag. Customisation of layout and search terms (username, tag and so on) is done by modification of the PHP code.

Figure 5.4 shows the images from flickr.
