Flickr Photostream


The Flickr Photostream is the most straightforward way to show your Flickr content. It's just your recently added photos, also known as your "wall". It's great to show some fresh content that changes often and shows your latest work. Show your friends' photos too, since Justified Image Grid supports multiple Flickr accounts added to it. A gallery like these just takes a few minutes to set up, and will maintain itself as you publish more content to Flickr. Put it on your homepage or sidebar - anywhere - and in essence: set it and forget it.

Greentzatziki's Flickr Photostream

This gallery shows the Flickr Photostream of Greentzatziki. It's set up with a backlink in the lightbox and an optional Filtering tag cloud.

The above example uses the following, generated shortcode (how to use):

[$justified_image_grid preset=11 lightbox=foobox mobile_lightbox=foobox filterby=on filter_style=tags filter_orderby=custom filter_custom_order="Spring, Autumn, Church, Flower, Forest, Grass, Underwater" flickr_photostream=9563763@N08]

Recent photos by Dirk Deckx - they open directly on Flickr

In this example you can see that the photos link directly to their pages on Flickr. Furthermore, there is a custom overlay icon (retina ready), indicating the photo's source. The Flickr logo is not bundled, but feel free to use any image (preferably a transparent png).

The above example uses the following, generated shortcode (how to use):

[$justified_image_grid caption=off overlay=hovered overlay_color=black overlay_icon=on overlay_icon_opacity=1 overlay_icon_url= overlay_icon_retina=[email protected] overlay_opacity=0.7 specialfx=hovered specialfx_type=desaturate limit=10 last_row=hide flickr_photostream=85468822@N05 flickr_link=direct]
