If you’re a big Flickr user, you’ll want to check out kuanhoong’s 8 alternate ways to embed flickr photos onto your webpages.
The list includes reviews and screenshots of the following Flickr add-ons and utilities:
5. Flickr Slideshow Generator
7. Yourminis Flickr widget
I’ll add # 9 to the list: BigHugeLabs fd’s Flickr Toy.
fd’s Flickr Toy includes the following Flickr blog tools and utilities:
Blog Header Generator lets you automatically turn one of your photos into a WordPress blog header.
Flickr DNA allows you to show off your Flickr profile with a link button.
Mosaic Maker creates a mosaic from a photoset, favourites, tags, or individual images.
Profile Widget lets you enter your Flickr username, email, or user ID to create a customized image that will automagically update itself throughout the day. It shows a selection of ten of your photos and some statistics about your Flickr usage.

The folks at CommonCraft have created a short “in plain english” video explaining online photo sharing.
Online photo sharing is not only fun, but it also provides a great way to backup your digital memories. This video reviews the benefits of using the online photo sharing site, Flickr.
This is a great way to get started on Project 365 which I blogged about earlier.

Looking to do something different with your photos in 2008?
Project 365 lets you see your life in a whole new way. The premise of the project is that you take a photo every day starting in January. The photo can be anything that you feel represents the day for you.
I’m participating in the Project 365 Tumblr channel.

A few weeks ago I wrote about photosharing on Flickr.
The Blogging Section of SLA-IT has a post on five uses of Flickr (or any photosharing website) for libraries. Some great ideas for extending the use of photosharing sites.
Flickr also has photo groups you can join.
Take a look at some of these “library” groups for ideas on how you can use a photosharing site in your library:

I love organizing stuff, especially on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
Flickr is a photosharing site owned by Yahoo.
What can you do on Flickr?
- Upload photos via the web, iPhone, camera phone, or email.
- Share photos with the world or keep them private and share them only with friends and family using guest passes.
- Join groups where you can share photos with those who have similar interests. (I spent hours browsing the depression glass group.)
- Drag-and-drop your photos onto a map to show where you took them, or browse a world map to see where other people have been and what they saw.
- Flickr also has a great search feature. You can search for photos using full text or tags, search for people, groups, or by camera model.
- RSS users can also subscribe to be notified when photos are added to tags, users, or groups.
With 2000+ photos uploaded each minute, it’s easy to see why Flickr is one of the best online photo management and sharing applications.
I love you too Flickr.
