Photo Soup

Friday, February 22nd, 2008 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Photo Soup

A long time ago, I wrote an article on the photo Web site of Flickr and now, I’m bringing you Photo Soup, which uses the pictures you have on Flickr to make word puzzles! You don’t have to have a Flickr account to play, but if you do, you can use your gallery to generate your own puzzle.

How does it work? Well, I found the best way to get a puzzle is to use the tag option. To do that, just type in a tag name. I used their example of “Zoo,” as well as, “Portrait.” Each of those tags generated great puzzles, so they are definitely a good starting point.

From the tag, it generates a word puzzle and the puzzle is surrounded by up to 17 images. Those images are your clues. You can also turn on hints, which will show you the photo tag you’re looking for.

For example, the Zoo puzzle had Lion, Monkey, White, Canon and Water.

Now, that’s not really what you might expect from the Zoo tag, so if I get stuck, turning on the hints is really helpful.

Each puzzle is timed as well. For every word you find, you get 10 seconds added back to your clock. I’ve gotten addicted to trying to finish one, but so far, my best score is 14 out of 17.

If you want to share this site with your friends, just go to the Embed option. Then type in the tag or username you want to use to generate the puzzle and it will then make the code you need to embed it. Now, all you have to do is copy and paste it on your Web page, blog, journal, etc. Have fun!
