Viewfinder is a Mac application that dramatically simplifies the process of finding, downloading and using images from Flickr.

--Take a Picture--
Viewfinder searches Flickr's over six billion photos in a snap to bring you the images you need. You can search tags, titles and descriptions and sort by most interesting, most relevant or most recent.

Viewfinder also helps you find images with Creative Commons licenses and generates attribution text for you.

--Presentation Maven--
If you like to present in a style beyond yellow text on a blue background, Viewfinder is the application for you. With Keynote integration, Viewfinder turns the tedious search-download-hunt-drag-trash cycle into a painless one-click process.

--Addicted to Desktop Pictures?--
Flickr has over 6,000,000,000 and many are available to freely download and use. With Viewfinder, they're yours in one click.

Customer Reviews

Disappointing - too few features with fatal bug

While this seems at first to be easier, faster, and more user-friendly way of searching and downloading from Flickr’s own website,
it’s disappointing that there are so few features - there are fewer search filter options than available on the Flickr site for instance.
I bought this to search for illustrations in particular and there is no option in this app for this, like there is on the Flickr site.

Update: just tried using it further and soon ran into a bug which makes apparently any search (e.g. for “dog” or “new york”) return no results - yes, I checked the filter settings, and I rebooted. Still the same problem.
