47 Photo APIs

John Musser, September 2nd, 2008

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:

John, I think you can add the Pho.to API in this list. Pho.to platform provides smart online photo editing services. Some of algorithms are unique, for example http://makeup.pho.to for automatic portrait photo enhancement.

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.

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?

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.
