We love our Flickr but the presentation of the pictures has always left a little to be desired—which is why we're so stoked on the new free photo viewer Blow Up. Blow Up makes use of the recently opened-up Flickr API to show your Flickr photos in a beautiful fullscreen display. Enter your Flickr name and see all your sets immediately or download the code to embed it on your blog or website. It's ideal for showcasing professional portfolios, but works just fine if you're just showing off pics to your mom too.

Blow Up is a pet project of CH collaborators Bond Art + Science, a user experience design shop based in New York City. Senior Interface Developer Jonathan Greacen set out to learn the Flickr API and wanted to build something that offered presentation quality for users and portability for developers.
