Jimazon provides a simple and direct portal into the Flickr photo database. It begins by loading up a specific category of Flickr photos and each thumbnail becomes a link into that Owners photos. There are three ways to populate this page:
Top photos considered interesting by Flickr.
Photos uploaded within the last few minutes.
You decide what types of photos to explore.
Click the button containing the current category name, to change it.
Selecting an Owner thumbnail shows their Sets (if any) in a paged format and when you select a Set, it's Photos will be presented in a paged format. The number in the thumbnails lower left corner indicates how many Photos are within the Set.
If there are no Sets, that level will be skipped and the Photos will be displayed. You can also transition from the Sets display to the Photos display at any time by clicking the P button. Remember, there may be only a few Sets but many Photos not contained within Sets.
Paging buttons at the top of both levels provide Forward, Backward, Home and End functions. The Refresh button gives you fresh content if available.
There are three types of thumbnail images, each performing a different function when clicked.
Display the owners Sets (or Photos if there are no sets).
Display the Photos in that Set.
Display the Photo at it's position within the stream.
When you scroll any page down, small Page Control buttons will appear top left. The Up button scrolls to the top of the current page while the Left button moves back to the previous page.
The thumbnail captions open an info box when clicked, containing data about the item. External links are available depending on type:
Click the Owner ID to open the owners Flickr page.
Click the Name to open the owners personal page.
Click the Set ID to open the owners Sets page.
Click the Photo ID to open that Flickr Photo page.
The program begins with the latest Trending photos and you can change this to Recent photos under Settings. One optional URL parameter ( ?s= ) performs five different functions:
Open with Trending content.
Open with Recent content.
Open an Owners Sets page. (ex: ?s=14435594@N00)
Open with Searched content. (ex: ?s=cats)
Open with Location content. (ex: ?s=latitude,longitude)
This program gives you manageable control over the Flickr database. Some owners will put 100,000 photos up with no Sets, which makes viewing their content difficult, to say the least. Some owners will create a few Sets with a few Photos, yet they have thousands of Photos not in Sets. Some create hundreds of Sets, which are also hard to manage.
Jimazon implements a Paging system that you can customize to your liking. Under Options you can select how many Sets or Photos you want to display within a Page. You can also specify how many Owners to select in Trending, Recent and Search modes. Adjust these values to match your browsers width and height, and enjoy!
My apologies for the occasional raunchy content, I have no control over that. I love Flickr, been a Pro for many years, and this app is my contribution. Thanks for dropping by!
