Yahoo Image Search
The Yahoo Image Search API is part of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service) which provides API access to Yahoo!'s web, news, and image search technology. Unlike other search APIs, developers can use BOSS technology with very few restrictions. The Image Search API provides access to Yahoo!'s image search technology and allows users to search the Internet for images. It uses a RESTful protocol and responses are formatted in either XML, JSON or PHP.
