And, we store photos to share online with Flickr. You remember Flickr, right? It’s the Yahoo! online photo gallery that could have owned the world but didn’t and doesn’t.
Still, as online photo services go, it’s is a good place to visit and if you add Viewfinder app to your Mac you’ll be able to search the billions of photos on Flickr with a few clicks.
Viewfinder is really iPhoto for Flickr. It doesn’t enhance photos. Instead, it finds photos. Enter keyword search terms and Viewfinder delivers what it finds.
Viewfinder is smart enough to filter photos by Creative Commons license, Commercial Use, Derivative Works, Relevance, Interest, Date, and more.
Each photo can be viewed with details and in close up mode with Preview.
The app even generates appropriate attribution text for photos that can be republished. Otherwise, there are not many additional features to clutter your screen. Change the background color is about it.
Viewfinder is nicely done, focused only on Flickr, and simple to operate.
