Flickr Hacks

Drag to set position!


Group Description

Flickr Hacks is a group for geeks to discuss:

Flickr Secrets & Arcana.

Non-API ways to get the most out of Flickr (API stuff goes here).

Greasemonkey scripts & other cool third-party tools.

You know, the good stuff...


This is not a group about exploiting bugs in Flickr, violating the TOS or otherwise abusing it. We use the word "Hacks" and "Hacker" in it's original, nobler sense. If you seek to inflict pain & misery, go elsewhere!

There's a directory of Flickr Greasemonkey Hacks at
See also the Flickr! Pipes group for all the details on the application of Yahoo! Pipes to Flickr.

N.B If you have a problem with a particular "hack" or have a question, please use the group's search function before starting a new thread, as your question has quite probably been asked, and answered before.

Group Rules

Discussions Please search the existing group discussions for answers to any questions you have, before posting a question, as its quite possible its been discussed before.

Group Pool The Flickr Hacks group pool is a moderated queue, that means any images you send to the pool, will not automatically go in, it will first be checked by a group admin/moderator to see if it is relevant to the group. So please only post relevant images to the pool, otherwise you are wasting your own time and also that of the admins/mods
