Compfight is a free online alternative for Flickr to browse and download Flickr photos. You can use this alternative for Flickr to search any type of photos available on Flickr. You can use any term as a keyword for searching the photos. You will get the results instantly along with some filters to narrow down your search range.
You can filter photos as Tags Only, All Text, License Type, show/hide originals, enable/disable safe search etc… For each photo, you can check the different image qualities available for download and even download it. The website also gives you the option for choosing whether you want to view enlarged photo on Compfight or you want to get redirected to Flickr.
Using this Online Alternative for Flickr to Browse, Download Photos:
You don’t have to login with Flickr account to use the Compfight. When you will open it on your browser, you will see its homepage with a simple search bar labeled as Search for Photos. You have to enter the term to search images related to what you are looking for. Enter the term and hit enter key on your keyboard.
It will take you to search results page where you will see all the photos matching your selection criteria. The website displays all the photos in a grid view. Hovering the mouse on any image displays its standard resolution.
Do remember that there is a dashed line between the two row of photos at top. This dashed line shows that all the images above it are paid one via Shutterstock while the ones below it are from Flickr. Do check for this line before going for any image.
To view any image in enlarged view and check its details, you only have to click on it. The pop-up will show you the image in bigger view, a link to the agreement page, available image sizes with download link, and a HTML code for adding a credit for image if you are going to use it on your website, blog or anywhere online.
The available image sizes and download link are displayed only for those websites which are available for download publicly. If any of the images is restricted for downloading by its owner, then you will see the interface shown below.
Apart from these standard results, you can also use different filters to get more precise search results. All the filters are available on the left sidebar. The left sidebar displays the search term used by you along with the number of results that it found. You can also edit and modify your search query from here.
