Awesome Flickr Gallery
By Ronak Gandhi
With the Awesome Flickr Gallery plugin, you can connect your WordPress photo blog with your Flickr account. That means you can add image galleries to your posts and pages with photos stored on Flickr. The plugin definitely comes in handy if you already have a lot of photos on Flickr and don’t want to spend more time uploading them separately to your WordPress site.
After installing the plugin, you need to go to the settings page and enter your Flickr information. Along with your Flickr ID, you also need a Flickr API Key. If you don’t currently have one, it’s easy enough to get. Just click the link on the right of the settings box and follow the instructions.
Once you enter and save your Flickr API Key and ID, you’ll be able to preview your photostream from Flickr.
The settings page also lets you customize the look of your gallery.
To add an image gallery to your WordPress post or page, just insert the appropriate shortcode.
Your post or page will now display an image gallery with thumbnails from your photos on Flickr.
Clicking on the thumbnail image will pop out a larger size image. You can also choose to view the photo on Flickr.
