Back in 2005 I wrote an article detailing how to embed flickr slideshows within your blog or website. Since then, that post has received over 200 comments, a crazy amount of links and numerous mentions on popular blogs. I finally got the message that embeddable flickr slideshows were a hot item.
For the past week or so I have been developing and designing flickrSLiDR. Sorry for the overly Web 2.0 name and design but that was kind of the whole point. Similar to my friend Dave Kellam's idGettr, I wanted flickrSLiDR to be a simple, one-page tool.
How It Works
The next time you want to post a flickr slideshow on your website, just head over to flickrSLiDR and provide it with the URL of the flickr photostream, photoset or group that contains the pictures to put in a slideshow. For photostreams and groups, you can specify tags or a full text query to fine tune the type of pictures to be displayed in the slideshow. You can also specify the dimensions of the slideshow.
Also, in the future I would love to have the ability to do the same thing with flickr's new slideshows. I have a good bit of the code already written so it might be added soon.
I only did a limited amount of user testing so please let me know if you have any feedback or see any errors. Thanks!
Update: flickrSLiDR has been sold.
