Embed a Flickr slideshow into your blog or website

Photodoto reader Ed Fladung writes in with this tutorial for embedding Flickr slideshows directly into your blog or website. He uses WordPress in his tutorial but the technique can be adapted to any platform.

I stumbled upon a Lightbox implementation called Lightwindow. It’s author is wicked smaht, it supports every kind of media (images, flash, webpages, external webpages, etc..), it uses scriptaculous and protoype (2 standard js script libraries), it’s skinnable, it works in most browsers and platforms, yada yada… For my uses, I needed to be able to load external web pages from Flickr and make the whole thing look good without being intrusive. Lightwindow did the trick, perfectly.

Read the rest of the tutorial here. Thanks, Ed.
