Fliker image search is more than just a search engine. It is designed as an inspirational tool, dynamically reacting to search terms as you type.
Images are shown in a central position, sequentially as you enter keywords. The flowing stream of images can be paused at any moment or scrolled back and forth using the timeline. Freezing a ‘frame’ automatically copies the picture to your clip board. There is only ever 1 image displayed at a time. A combination of mouse and keyboard can be used for fast navigation of image results. Read the short description on the about link at the bottom of the page for simple instructions.
The number of pictures found, location (URL) and image size are displayed at the same time. Concept, design, development and programming Jussi Ängeslevä & Ross Cooper.
