Yahoo Images now integrates Flickr into its gallery of images to give Yahoo Image Users more variety and options to their image search queries, informs the Official Yahoo! Search blog.

flickr.pngFlickr alone has 300 million images while Yahoo! Image search crawls billions of images. Now, the two will combine to give you a multitude of options. The official blog says:

  • First, we wanted to ensure that we respected the contributions from the Flickr community and give credit where credit is due. Results from Flickr are attributed to the photographer with a 'by membername on Flickr' attribution. As usual, clicking on the thumbnail takes you to the photo. And clicking on the photographer's name sends you to their photo stream so you can see their public photos.
  • Second, we wanted to build a scalable integration that surfaced the freshest, most relevant content from Flickr. As a result, we've built this integration via a direct feed versus an API, ensuring timely results for your image queries, including any modifications or additions that are made in Flickr.
  • This integration brings another layer of relevance, freshness and, dare we say, beauty to our Image Search.

Just a matter of happiness is a great example of the images available at flickr which they call interestingness.
