It is fun to use Flickr to find pictures that people post for others to use. Or use FlickR to post your own albums. Here's a site (Spell with Flickr - http://metaatem.net/words/) where you can have any word spelled with different pictures that have each letter in the word.

Erik Kastner used the letters from the One Letter group with the Flickr API and is making the Source Code available for free.

  • Just go to Spell with Flickr and type in a word.
  • You can change the tile size from Regular to Square.
  • Click on each letter and change the letter to a different picture.
  • Create a Javascript badge.
  • Or grab the html code to embed on your website.

Each letter is a separate image and you can move them around.
