How to create embeddable Flickr slideshows

I just read on RWW that Flickr finally released an easy way to embed slideshows to your website or blog.

Well, I didn’t wait for Flickr to create such a feature as I have been adding my own Flickr slideshows to my blogs for quite a bit.

I can’t remember where I found out about this method but here is how it works. Basically, there are 2 ways to do it:

<iframe align=center src=http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=YOURUSERIDHERE
&tags=YOURTAGHEREframeBorder=0 width=500 scrolling=no height=500>
</iframe>
There is also another method but I found it to be a little weak and not working all the time…
<object type=”text/html” data=”http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=YOURUSERIDHERE
&tags=YOURTAGHERE&” width=”500″ height=”500″> </object>

Other parameters include:

  • contacts=
  • text=
  • tag_mode=
  • favorites=
  • group_id=
  • frifam=
  • nsid=
  • single=
  • firstIndex=
  • set_id=
  • firstId=
You can see my method in action at the bottom of this post.
I haven’t tried Flickr slideshow feature yet but it seems the process would be easier with their method.
