I'm trying to retrive a photo base don my username and Id, is there a function that supports this?

Sure do. Just use the Flickr.PhotosSearch, and specify the UserId on the PhotosSearchOptions parameter.

Hi Sam,

Yes that makes sense, where do I pass the photo Id though?

If you have the photo id you don't need to know the user, you can just call Flickr.PhotosGetInfo. I thought you meant the user ID.

Thanks Sam, I assumed the Photo Id was only unique to the User.

That should dop the trick though, thanks :)

Hi Sam, Ok here is my code below. I'm passing the Image Id which looks like, 3074934294 into the function but keep getting the following error. I've looked on flickr and the id seems to match ok.

Any sugestions?

                FlickrNet.Flickr flickrO = new FlickrNet.Flickr();

                FlickrNet.Photoset curPhoto = flickrO.PhotosetsGetInfo("3074934294");

                this.ltArticles.Text += "<img src='" + curPhoto.PhotosetSquareThumbnailUrl + "' />";
            catch (Exception ex)
                Response.Write(ex.Message + curMedia.MediaData);

You want PhotosGetInfo, not PhotosetsGetInfo.
