SlideFlickr, embed Flickr Slideshows in less than 10”!

Published by stelabouras in Internet, Software, Tech


At the beginning of May, Flickr launched their new flash slideshow viewer with a new interface and larger picture sizes, allowing people to view their slideshows in a whole new way comparing to the previous tool that had some limitations.

Couple of weeks after this announcement, I thought that it would be cool if anyone could have the opportunity to create a custom slideshow with the option to embed it in their own blog-site-myspace page. That’s how Slideflickr was originally created. I started playing with Flickr API for the database queries and the whole idea seemed pretty easy and sexy. After some tests I released the aplha version of Slideflickr which was generating iframe code for anyone interested. Although this version generated a lot of problems with Internet Explorer & Opera users, Slideflickr was accepted by a lot of people so I had to find a work around, asking and reading for a week or so.

I am happy to announce the beta version of Slideflickr, which is working perfectly in every browser, generating <embed> code for every site!

Slideflickr gives you the opportunity to gather all or some selected photos from flickr (via specific url / set selection and tag support) and then customize the Flickr slideshow viewer to your needs by altering it’s dimensions or the messages shown.

The whole procedure is rather easy and it could take you less than 10 seconds, feel free to comment for requests, bugs or anything else you want to concerning Slideflickr here!

Below you can see some test posts with embedable Slideflickr in Blogger, Pblogs, Myspace. for security reasons doesn’t allow <embed> tags but I hope I will find some solution there!

Really nice and fast way to get a flickr slideshow. Try cleaning up the code a bit though to make it XHTML valid (: Also why not adding ‘tags’ to the list of options? flickr’s API is quite flexible!

Thanks for the comment Marios!
SlideFlickr’s code is XHTML valid and I will probably validate the code of the embeddable player as well.
As for the tags, there are actually implemented inside “Advanced Options” choice!

Very nice work! I ll use it for sure.
Great domain too ;)

very nice and thank you

THANKS for this =D

a suggestion would be to add more options such as sorting (though it can be done by inserting manually into the embed code).

and i wonder if it’s possible
(i) to change the background colour from black to white, and
(ii) to decrease the height of the description box.

thanks again!

Thanks for your comments!

I will take your suggestions under consideration, especially the background color chooser seems a pretty nice feature!

Oh, you are here. I just wrote an email to you.

Since I posted your tool on my blog, I’ve been asked about: is it possible to have an option to stop “auto-play” slideshow at the beginning? I personally think your tool can fulfill my needs already but since somebody asked, I just pass this question to you.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about,
why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever
a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove
me from that service? Thank you!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to tell someone!

I usually do not leave a great deal of comments,
but i did some searching and wound up here SlideFlickr, embed Flickr Slideshows in less than 10!
at Wiggler. And I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
Could it be only me or does it look like a few of the comments look as if they are left by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are writing at additional online
sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Valuable info. Lucky me I found your web site by chance,
and I’m stunned why this twist of fate didn’t took place earlier!
I bookmarked it.
