tickr for flickr is a way to enjoy images from flickr as they slowly glide down the coveted space on the right-hand side of your desktop. Essentially, tickr just scrolls images, until flickr runs out of images to show you which match the tags you've specified. In many cases, this is a really, really, really long time.
What's New
Version 1.1:
  • The position of tickr's window is now configurable. You can position the window on the right, left, or bottom sides of your desktop, and by desktop, I mean all of the displays which are connected to your Mac.
  • The size of tickr's window is now configurable. Choose from Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large window sizes. tickr will scale photos appropriately for your window size. Using a smaller window size is a great way to improve performance on older Macs.
  • The window level of tickr's window is now configurable. You can choose between Always in Front, Normal, or Always Behind. tickr's window can be made Semi-transparent, Mostly Transparent or Opaque (in other words, just like a normal window).
  • Search types are available in Photos > Search in the main menu bar.
  • Using Photos > Sort you can order your search results By Date Taken, By Date Posted, By Interestingness (the default), or By Relevance.

Sorry to double pst, but the author updatd this so fast, and included so many new features that just made this thing awesome, I felt the need to actually give it a star rating this time.

My fave Flickr/tickr search tag: hydrant

Download this and enjoy.

This thing is pretty cool. A few customization options would be great, such as:

• ticker size
• the option to have multiple tags running in the stream (i.e. an OR search as well as the existing AND search)
• an "always on top" option
• perhaps a checkbox feature where you can later retrieve faves that pass by while you are too busy to double click.
• more randomness (if there is any now). Sometimes you get spammed by someone who uploads a whole memory card worth of the same tags.

I'd also like to see custom positioning support, including multi-monitor support.

Otherwise very cool and well done.
