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.
