Bloggable Flickr Slideshow

Here’s a neat way of embedding Flickr’s slideshow feature in your own blog. flickrSLiDR asks you for a set in your Flickr stream and then gives you some html code to paste into your blog post.

He’s cheating a small bit though. He’s using Flickr’s own slideshow application and simply passing the right parameters to it. Take a look at the code at the end of this post to see for yourself!

Here’s a slideshow of my WordCamp 2006 photos. I’m looking forward to the next one in SF in July!

Oops. And just after publishing this post I realise that it’s a bad thing to post a Flash application that loads lots of photos so you have to click into this post to see the slideshows. They won’t show when in archive mode. Phew.

Using the same iframe format here’s a slideshow of my street photos. I simply copy/pasted the url into the iframe tag to get it to work!

It’s by no means a perfect way of embedding a slideshow in your blog post but it could be a good addition to a post about an event where there are lots of photos. Flickr’s powerful tagging system means you can even view a slideshow of all street photos on the site, not just mine! (via lifehacker)

Edit – the Flickrvision 3d map of the world is very impressive. The globe scrolls about and displays newly uploaded images to Flickr. Requires Flash 9 however.
