Many silos offer RSS feeds for different kinds of content, but the details are not always easy to find. This page lists examples for some silos. Feel free to add more.

Projects on the RSS page links to other tools that off alternate means of re-enabling RSS feeds that silos may have shut down.

deviantArt

http://backend.deviantart.com/rss.xml?q=gallery%3AUSERNAME.

"gallery:" becomes "gallery%3A" due to the URL encoding; only replace the USERNAME with the deviantArt username.

Flickr

To get the feed of a single person use: https://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?lang=en-us&format=rss_200&id=USERID.

Unfortunately, the USERID is not the username, and to get the actual ID you either need to need to use the Flickr API or visit a 3rd party service, like http://idgettr.com/. At least you can specify set IDs as well to follow, the details are at https://www.flickr.com/services/feeds/.

There is also a way to get the feed of everyone you follow: https://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_friends.gne?lang=en-us&format=rss_200&id=USERID but in this case, USERID should be your own ID.

There is a documentation on this at https://www.flickr.com/services/feeds/.

Instagram

Only through 3rd party [1], but it works.
