Got to Love Flickr
« on: March 31, 2008, 11:15:00 AM »
This isn't for everyone:

http://www.flickr.co...atmarsh25/387368999/

But it's a good example of the fantastic work available on Flickr. A lot of people have put in some serious work to make pictures available. Flickr may someday supplant istockphoto and others like it.

This is adult-themed, moderately NSFW (near nudity).
Nothing wrong with it, but please remember to say so when posting links for those who care.

Interesting photos, there is quite some talent in Flickr, and the fact that the photos are CC-licensed (and don't have those giant watermarks like some other photography site) is a huge advantage. The only drawback is that, being so humongous, it's quite difficult to find the best works.

It's the kind of thing you'd see in a magazine ad for cosmetics or something, so I didn't figure it was too harsh (hence the "not for everyone"). I'll turn up the sensitivity meters in the future though.

The CC license is really becoming quite popular. I can see how it can work to help attract attention to the creators kind of how the FOSS/consulting business model works, or the recorded music / concert model works.

But quite right about Flickr being difficult to use --- it's just SOOOO big. With the stock photo sites, you pretty much get A-grade stuff right off the bat without any digging.
