I need a pool of photos (if possible with description) for my project. I mainly have to perform term extraction for semantic searching. Is there something available out there that is made available for such kinds of thing?

I'm going to mine the description of these photos, maybe build ontologies and then perform search on them. The result of the mining might give useful terms about the pictures.

I know i can get image from google, I'm asking whether there is something for this, like giving pictures with their description for student to perform their project, – Noor Feb 1 '13 at 19:46
also, image on google are sometimes only images, i need something already with their description – Noor Feb 1 '13 at 19:50
What do you mean by "term extraction"? You should make your question more precise, as it stands it is hard to understand/answer. – vonbrand Feb 1 '13 at 19:51
@vonbrand, ok, edited – Noor Feb 1 '13 at 19:53
Are you processing the descriptions (i.e., the text) or the images? – vonbrand Feb 1 '13 at 20:02

One good way is to use Flickr. For your project you could use available API for downloading photos with related information.

If you are using Java you could use the classes on Google Codes.
