Along with the rapid growth of video APIs, the marketplace of photo-related APIs continues to expand rapidly. Since we looked at 36 Photo APIs earlier this year, we've added nearly a dozen new ones, and there are now 47 APIs tagged "photo" in our web service directory.

The best known and most used photo API continues to be the Flickr API, now with 365 Flickr mashups listed here. Second in terms of mashups listed is the Imageloop API with 24 ImageLoop mashups listed. Then third and fourth are both Google properties: the Picasa API with and Panoramio API with 9 Panoramio mashups (a mashup-centric service that Google acquired last year).

Recent additions include the Zooomer API, the MediaSock API, the MOO API and the World Bank API.

On the photo mashup front, there's the recently added entry for Pikter, a simple service that enables you to share photos on Twitter and-or Jaiku.

For reference, here's the full list of photo-related APIs in the ProgrammableWeb directory:

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your

website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to

say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people

could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for

only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?


Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading?

I'm trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog.

Any responses would be greatly appreciated.


Dit is de eerste keer dat ik 47 Photo APIs bezoek en ik ben aangenaam overrompeld door de relatie welke het artikel bezit omtrent shakes voor afvallen.
