Do you remember my post titled, “Why every musician should have a flickr pro account.“? If not, go read it and get back over here. Today’s post is about two things. First, flickr now has a great new way to embed slideshows like the one you see above. Second, a reminder that flickr groups are a great place to go to get your gearlust on!
You could always embed slideshows from flickr using flickrslidr. But the new embeddable slideshows direct from flickr itself are very nice. You can customize the embed size without going into the code, decide if the titles and descriptions are displayed and videos now play inside slideshows!
One of the main improvements we’ve made is that you can watch videos as they appear in a slideshow. When we come to a video in a slideshow, we’ll play it before we move on to the next item. You can also embed a slideshow on another website in bite-sized form. Just click the “Share” link from any slideshow, then copy and paste the embed code wherever you want. – blog.flickr.net
The above slideshow is from The Audio Recording Studio group. Here are a few other music related groups I like to check out from time to time:
Flickr is a fun place and it’s also a highly usefull promotional tool. Using flickr stats I can see my own photos have been viewed 102,234 times. The most viewed photo? The Horrorist – Studio… easy, free promotion!
Have you spent anytime checking out Groups on flickr? Got any favorites?
