This week I'm sharing a brand new WordPress plug-in that create slide shows for your blog posts from the photos in your Flickr account. Here's a quick example of the plugin in action, from my trip to the Atlanta Motor Speedway last weekend:
Please specify a Flickr ID for this gallery
Details: Slickr Flickr Plugin
Download plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/slickr-flickr/
Note: you'll need to go to http://idgettr.com to get your Flickr ID to use in the settings of the plugin.
It's very easy to install and use. I had the example above set up in less than 8 minutes on the first try.
This is a great way to repurpose your Flickr photos.
Up until now I have used Animoto to create YouTube videos out of still photos. Obviously Animoto is still the best option for repurposing your photos into a video marketing campaign, but this opens up a whole new set of options.
You can display photos of course, or you could get creative. Consider using product images, cover graphics, explanatory text images and screenshots in a slide show within your blog posts. Especially on product reviews or demos!
You can use the Slickr Flickr plugin within blog posts, or in a sidebar widget. There are several options, and it's super easy to use.
p.s. That was my first Nascar experience, and it was awesome!
