DevShed:
Implementing Yahoo Image Search Web Service with PHP 5
Jan 29, 2008 @ 13:05:08

DevShed has posted the third part of their series looking at accessing the Yahoo! web services via PHP5 scripts. This time it's a focus on using the image search capabilities.

In this third chapter of the series, I'm going to continue exploring in detail other helpful web services offered by Yahoo!, such as those focusing on searching images and videos. Also, I will demonstrate how they can be queried directly from a basic PHP 5 application and process the corresponding search results by utilizing the same group of array handling functions that you saw in the previous article of the series.

Just like in previous articles of the series, they make a simple class that connect to the Yahoo! web services and request search details back about their queries (like "Madonna").
