Building Flickr Applications With PHPeBook - 2006
Open-source software is often of very high quality, but sometimes users must search in vain for a strong reference to guide them to and through the more advanced features. This handbook fills that gap between anticipation and production by giving those who wish to make the best use of Flickr's enormous photo cache (and of course their own favorite snaps). Practitioners and photography enthusiasts Kunkle and Morton keep the fact that readers may have had limited experience with open-source software, graphic design, photography and collaborative technology in mind as they describe the software and its attendants, discuss features, show how to install the works, including Apache, PHP and Phlickr, work with PHP and photos, organize photo sets, use semantic tags, get through Real Simple Syndication feeds and other syndication, and add collaborative features to websites with Flickr Groups.

The first book showing how to take advantage of your photos and Flickr's enormous cache, to create new and compelling extensions to the Flickr platform, using open source tools (PHP and MySQL) with Flickr to manage, retrieve, and format photos in imaginative ways.
This is the first book that shows how to take advantage of both your photos and Flickr's enormous cache, to create new and compelling extensions to the Flickr platform. You’ll discover how to take advantage of open source tools (like PHP, Apache, and MySQL) and the Flickr architecture to manage, retrieve, and format photos in imaginative ways. You’ll also learn how to build upon Flickr's photo collaboration features to create interfaces for working with others on photo album projects. And you will learn how to take advantage of RSS to distribute photo updates with ease.
