Designed to be an alternative way to view and interact with Flickr, Fluidr helps you:

- Get through photos and videos fast with minimal page loads
- Discover new Flickr artists.
- View things shuffled or sorted by Interestingness
- Switch seamlessly to a slideshow and back again without page loads
- Allow you to browse Flickr quicker with keyboard shortcuts


Fluidr allows you to view all the usual views: Explore, user, group, tags, sets etc. but also unusual views such as the most interesting videos from today, or your contacts' recent photos in random order.

Fluidr sports a continuous pagination interface which simply means that as you scroll, more photos magically appear at the bottom of the page. This means that you'll never need to hit a 'next' link again. You can jump into a slideshow at any time: just hit the SPACEBAR key to step through photos. For more information on available shortcuts, click the 'About' link at the top right of the page.

You can add faves, comment on photos, view videos, investigate EXIF and view photos on a map on the same page without needing to load a new page.

Try the 'Surprise Me!' feature to jump to a random view on Flickr, it's a good way to discover someone new on Flickr, and see one of the 4,000,000,000+ images on Flickr you might otherwise never see.

Please have a go and post any comments, suggestions and issues on the Fluidr group right here on Flickr. And you can follow Fluidr on Twitter or become a fan on Facebook.

Fluidr is in active development, so please provide feedback! Useful ideas will be credited with a link back to your stream/blog.

Thanks for trying Fluidr! If you like Fluidr, please consider adding it to your faves with the link above this photo :)

Fluidr was in part inspired by Flickriver which provided many useful hints (such as fine-tuning the continuous pagination code) when first implementing Fluidr. If you like Fluidr, give Flickriver a spin!

I don't want to read the API docs, so I'll just ask:

Does any part of the user's credentials pass through the fluid server?

haelio says:

@Kitty: If by credentials you mean data that would allow someone with access to log in as you, then no :)

When you sign in or authorize Fluidr, you are doing so on Flickr's site. Flickr then simply passes back a key that allows Fluidr to post comments as you and so on. Although _this_ particular piece of data passes through Fluidr's servers it is not stored on them. This piece of data is stored as a cookie on your machine.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Hopefully you will find a way to implement my suggestion about showing # of comments and faves on the metadata information next to each photo :)

OK, after using this for a while I find that it is simply fantastic. Flickr should integrate this into their main site and hire the people behind this (I've been itching to use the Flickr API myself, will do on Winter break).

Good but... the view count on photos do not seems to be accumulating as fluidr loaded the photos, so even if zillions have view your photos in fluidr you will never know. =P

So now Flickr can throw away one of it marketing strategies (photos stats) to lure people into signing up for pro account.

Since it so good and If everyone uses fluidr to view your photos, then no count will be accumulated. LOL. =P

Anti-Fluidr says:

Now your photos that are larger in size can be stolen and thanks to Fluidr.

This is how the thief can do it!
1.The thief have a large monitor, say 24” or larger
2.The thief open Fluidr using any browser, made sure it is not opened in full screen and big enough to display the large photo the thief wanted!
3.The thief then clicks on the photos, wah la, Fluidr stupidly displayed the larger photo which you did not allowed.
4.The thief then navigate away from the browser, say by clicking on one of the desktop icon.
5.The thief then press the combination of ctrl + print screen.
6.The thief then open paint blush, paste the copied desktop (with your larger photo), cut the photo out without the world knowing it.

Even when the ‘All Size’ link is disabled and the direct link to the your larger photo is not publish. Thanks to Fluidr that our photos of larger size can now be easily stolen!

Some people just are not happy with anything... Anything that can be displayed on a screen can be ripped off. Period. But, it is LIMITED to the screens resolution. Period. Now, does it really matter? No. If you dont want it ripped off, then watermark it. Otherwise, live with it.

BTW, I love it :) And PLEASE!! Rip Off My Photos!! (would love it if you gave me credit... but I'd still love to see them out there! :D )

SKGA says:

Looks like a nice idea but I have concerns with #2 in the following:

By authorizing this link, you'll allow Fluidr to:

1. Access your Flickr account (including private content)
2. Upload, Edit, and Replace photos and videos in your account
3. Interact with other members' photos and videos (comment, add notes, favorite)

Fluidr will not have permission to:

* Delete photos and videos from your account
Posted 52 months ago. ( permalink )

view profile

haelio says:

@SKGA: Fluidr only uses 1 and 2 from that list. This means that it will only allow you (and no one else) to view your private photos, and will use your account to post comments and faves when you (and no one else) wants to.

After closer inspection, I definitely think the interface and usability is great.

BUT...for allowing easy access to photos belonging to users who do not allow large sizes to be easily accessed (such as myself), you should be ashamed of yourself.

I think this is great. I've no problem with my Flickr-uploaded stuff appearing here. As far as I'm concerned, if I upload downloadable versions of my photos to Flickr, they could appear anywhere on the web. Being surprised at this seems naive to me (sorry, but it does!). I really like the continuous scrolling in particular. Nice one!!

This is fabulous. Would you consider making this open source. It seems like it would appeal to people who want to skin just their photo stream. The app would need modification to only configuration of the user in question.

I absolutely love this app. I never used to check Explore in the past, now I'm checking Fluidr multiple times a day. I love the black background and the scroll/load.

I am getting the same issues others seem to be having - the past week or so only the first 1% would load, now nothing, with the message "No photos or videos to display.
Perhaps you need to log in? Why not try today's most interesting photos and videos instead?"

Will we see the photos at the new 640p resolution soon? And what about a "badge creator", like flickriver?

Anyhow, I really like fluidr. Thanks for making it.

I too would like to see Fluidr support the 640-pixel size (new "medium") that Flickr uses on its regular pages...

Otherwise, Fluidr is now showing smaller images than we see on the Flickr photostream.

In addition, if it's possible, I'd like the option of viewing the 1024 size on the main Fluidr pages. (I say "option" because I know many users are still on small monitors with low resolution, but some of us could easily view the "large" size in the regular stream.)

I discovered Fluidr just yesterday and I love it! I've been using Flickriver for a long time but you took the concept to a new level. The search feature rocks. The styling is beautiful, especially the classy font you selected.

My only complaint is that it is a bit more prone to load errors than Flickriver--but it just might be Flickr having the hiccups.

Thank you for the great work!
