I just saw a press release for a way to put quality images on your website or blog.
FeaturePics Web services provides programmatic access to the FeaturePics Image Collection.
You can enhance your web site by retrieving images from FeaturePics Image Collection by subject and showing them in layouts suitable for your site design.
FeaturePics supports the XML/HTTP Protocol. As a variant, the Response can be formed in JSON format.
