Flickr Slideshow and Photo Sharing

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Zillow - Nat'l Outreach Mgr & Dir. of Zillow Academy
On our recent journey along the Northern California West Coast, we shot numerous photos of our visits and travels. Using Flickr.com allows us to share that experience with or friends and family across the web.

Flickr photoshare allows you to embed a short bit of code which creates a cool slideshow player on your website or blog post. Flickr also provides a variety of tools including online photo editing with Aviary, the ability to create collections and sets, and the SEO from Flickr images is amazing.

Take a journey with us as we traveled and camped in the great redwoods of Big Basin and Henry Cowell State Park. Ride along as we visit the shores of Santa Cruz, Capitola, Monterey Bay, and the Davenport coastline.

To create a Flickr slideshow:

1. Sign up and Create a Flickr account
2. Create a set and upload/add desired photos
3. Select the Set and Click Slideshow
4. Choose the "share" option and copy embed code
5. Place the embed code on website or blog post

While I do hope you'll take a moment to view and enjoy some of our journey in these photos above, I really hope you'll take a few moments to investigate Flickr's other cool tools and features.

Hey Rene - glad you enjoyed the slideshow. I have had a pro flickr account for years but had no idea you could embed a slideshow of specific sets or photos into a blog post or on a website. Very cool!

You may not know it but you captured one of California's beloved surf spots in Santa Cruz "Steamer Lane".  Was flat the day of your photo but what a wave in the winter.

Love the shot of the pelicians or seagulls sitting on the rail of the pier---- how Neil Diamondish? Hope you enjoyed your trip.

Beautiful slide show! I used Flickr a while ago but then got away from it. I'll have to go back and check it out.

I have fallen in love with Flickr. I was a huge fan and user of Google's Picasa, but since they changed it and made it so you can't share the photos anywhere but on Google Plus, I've dropped my pro account and switched to Flickr.

I'm not gonna lie, I love flickr and I've been on there for many years with a pro account. One of the best online purchasing decisions I've made. :)

Hey Michele - I've use many photo sharing sites including Picasa but Flickr gets my vote for many reasons.  Too many to list here in the comments but maybe I'll do a top 10 reasons post next...   :-)

Hi Michele - I'm not sure if flickr will import from Picasa and check duplication, let me go check?  OK, here's the answer I found on a Forum provided at Flickr.com: http://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157627222382252/ Hope that helps.
