Flickr API … worthless

I’ve been fooling with the Flickr API for an hour now and I’m discovering that it doesn’t have basic things I was expecting like the ability to return the url for an image! It’s great that I can call functions and get links back to Flickr’s website, but what good does that do me for integrating my Flickr images within my website?

I’ll keep looking through their documentation. Maybe I’m missing something obvious. Otherwise I guess I have to give up on my avoid-implementing-my-own-web-based-photo-management-system idea…

    flickr.photos.getSizes(appid, photoid) returns a list of available
    sizes for a given image object, including sizes and URLs for direct
    linking.
