Blipfoto API

Breaking changes - legacy APIs will be disabled 6th January, 2014

Please note - the v1 and v2 APIs will be permanently disabled on Monday the 6th of January, 2014. If your app uses these APIs, you should migrate to v3 before this date to ensure your app continues to function correctly.

Migrating your app to v3 will require some fundamental changes, including updating resource URLs and handling the new authentication flow. You can read more about migration at the new developer site:

For further help with the v3 API, ask a question on the API forum or get in touch.

What is the Blipfoto API?

The API allows developers to access Blipfoto information programatically over the web.

What can I do with it?

Our iPhone App is just the start; its really up to you, but here are a few ideas:

  • create widgets for your favourite blogging platform
  • integrate Blipfoto with a mobile phone
  • build interactive maps to display images by country
  • create an application to upload entries from your desktop
  • design apps to import entries from other photography sites

How does it work?

You access the API directly over the web. This means that you can use it from almost anywhere; a web server, a desktop computer, or a mobile phone.

How do I get started?

To start building with the API, you must have a Blipfoto account. From there you obtain an API Key which allows you to make calls to the API service.

If you have an account, sign in now. Otherwise, why not join?
