flickfindr

When I come across a link to an image on Flickr that is a direct image URL (like this, for example) I consider it a very irresponsible act of internet publishing. I liken it to hot-linking which is already considered a big no-no in respectable circles. To give credit back to the photographers, Jarred Bishop has created FlickFindr, a website that reverse engineers the Flickr image URL to point back to the original Flickr image page (if you’re curious, the image linked previously can be found here).

FlickFindr is certainly a must-have bookmark for me as I seem to come across more and more direct image links on Flickr lately…
