I have FlickrNet wired into a commercial application to retrieve photos based on text search and tags. I notice that the search results I get back are different when using the same search terms on Flickr.com. I'm using, for example, the method PhotosSearch(searchTags, TagMode.AllTags, searchTerms, PhotoSearchExtras.All); with tags "Spring Break" and text search "Holiday". Can someone please tell me how to get the same search results that I would get if I was doing the search on Flickr.com? Thanks.

Unauthenticated calls to the Flickr API only perform safe searches (and I'm only guessing but some photos tagged as 'spring break' might not be 'safe'). If you want the same search results then authenticate your search requests.

Thank you! I'll look into that.
