I am trying to get around to posting some of the better websites I come across along with a short review. This one caught my eye while sifting through profiles on Flickr.com
. I had seen a few widgets, gadgets, tools, or whatever you would like to call them posted in some profiles and on some comments and wondered where they came from. Big Huge Labs
was the place... for most of them at least.
I have to admit... its kinda cool some of the things they have developed. They have a tool to create a mosaic
collage of photos in from your Flickr.com account. This is much like the mosaic Flickr creates of your sets. There is also a neat tool for designers and artists called Palette Generator
, that will select and display harmonious color palettes from a photo. This is handy if you are trying to match colors in print or on the web according to a photo you plan to use. Another popular tool they offer is the Profile Widget
which I see posted on many profiles. It displays ten photos from a Flickr account and some interesting stats.
There are many other little tools to play with photos as well. Too many to list here really. Some are neat and useful and some may only be of use to certain people. You will have to check it out yourself and look at the offerings. Its worth a vist for any Flickr.com user which the tools were designer for.
