Compfight - A Great Flickr Search Engine

I love using Flickr, the photo posting and sharing site that is owned by Yahoo!, but I've always felt its search feature was lackluster at best. Today, I've found a great search tool that surpasses the one provided by flickr and is free and easy to use. The name of this search engine is called Compfight and it searches flickr for both commercial and Creative Commons approved images in an easy to use interface.

Some of the other great features of the site are:

  • The ability to search by tag or by all text
  • The ability to search for images that only have their original sizes
  • Compfight also provides a "Safe Images" only filtering tool that is helpful for searching for safe for work images only.
Compfight is free to use and a great way to find that perfect picture to match your blog post or research paper.
