Introducing Flickr Find

Flickr Find

Flickr Find in action

Did you ever need that perfect image for a presentation you were doing? Flickr Find makes it easy. Creative Commons images are returned by default, but you can make an easy change to search all images.



Flickr Find is available at the Jetpack Gallery.

Basic Usage

  • Select a word or a phrase on a web page
  • Cloose ‘Search Flickr…’ from the context menu
  • If the slidebar is closed, you will see the icon move. Click on it to see your results. If already open the results will just load there
  • 20 items per page is the default, and you can change that in Settings. At the buttom choose ‘More…’ to fetch more images
  • Selecting a new word or phrease will start a new set of image results. Selecting the same will just fetch more images and add them to the list
  • Clicking on one of the images in the slidebar will open the Flickr photo page in a new tab.

I’m keeping it very simple, but if you have any features requests, I would certainly consider them.

    I installed this addon but it didn’t seem to correctly modify my context menu in a nightly minefield.

    I didn’t even test on Minefield yet. Do you mean that the item does not appear at all in the menu?

    Right, I select a word, right-click on it, and the list I get includes: “Copy, Select All, Search Google, View Selection Source, Inspect Element, NoScript, Screengrab, (another jetpack item)” and that’s it

    @crowder Do other jetpacks work? Might it just be this bug?

    Yeah, other jetpacks seem to work alright; though I have definitely run into that bug, as well.
