After reading some of Ken‘s posts about Flickr, I’ve been keeping an eye on it to see if I want to use it in the future. The only thing I’m not thrilled about with Flickr is that they use Flash to display full-sized images on their site. While looking around at plugins for WordPress, I came across Flickr Gallery, which allows you to display your Flickr photos and photosets on your site like a photo gallery using the Flickr’s API. Here’s some of it’s features:
- Flickr photosets as “albums” – complete with descriptions and meta.
- EXIF data support to display camera settings the photo was snapped with – in addition to the description and meta info from Flickr
- Valid XHTML output.
- Option to respect photos marked “private”.
- Thumbnail size choices.
An example installation can be found here. I haven’t taken any photos in a while, but I might now, so I can try this out.
