I recently found this web app while trying to figure out how to embed a Flickr photo set into a WordPress post. The main reason I was looking was I had came across something similar on a newspaper blog I was reading.
Here I am trying out one of my own Flickr Image Sets using the Flicker Slideshow application at: http://www.flickrslideshow.com/.
During the creation process you just enter in the url for your Flickr Set, then add some tags if you want and then you can control the size of the slideshow, When you are ready, it will then generate some html code that you can then copy and paste into your WordPress blog post.
This app also includes some very nice features for working with the slideshow once you have created it.
- Mouse over the top and you get controls to pause, step between photos, and adjust the speed of the slideshow.
- If you mouse over the bottom of the slideshow you get a complete thumbnail list of all the photos in the set.
- When the slideshow is complete, it notifies you it is done and asks if you would like to restart it from the beginning.
Over all, I am very pleased with this app and considering that Flickr now has a full terabyte of storage available to you, using this option for the storage and the displaying of your photos will be a great benefit for use on with your WordPress site.
