Yahoo’s Image Search Now Pulls Personalized Results from Flickr



Yahoo is rolling out a revamped image search engine today that now includes photo results from its Flickr service. As long as you’re signed in, the personalized Flickr results will include your own collection of Flickr photos, photos from people you follow, and other top public photos on the service.

Additional search options such as filtering by color and size will also apply to Flickr results in addition to photos found elsewhere on the Web. Clicking a “More images” button in the Flickr results will take users directly to a page on Flickr with even more photo results.


Yahoo’s image search now shares many of the same design elements that were rolled out recently on Flickr. Here’s what Flickr’s search looks like:


This latest change will make it easier for people who need photos to find the usable images they need, as there’s also a “License” dropdown menu that can filter the Yahoo image search results by license type, from “Any License” to commercial reuse and public domain.
