ALL: Flash Flickr Widget by Roytanck

The form below will let you generate a Flash Flickr widget for your website or blog using your Flickr RSS feed. It will create a short bit of HTML code that you can copy-paste code into any HTML page, blog post or a WordPress text widget. You’ll need the following values to get you started.

  • Your Flickr or Picasa RSS feed. To get feed URL one for your Flickr photostream, simply go to your photostream’s page and right-click the little orange RSS icon at the bottom. Select ‘Copy link location’ or ‘Copy shortcut’ and paste it into the form below. For Picasa, there’s a link called ‘RSS’ at the bottom right of the ‘My Photos’ page, and a small icon on the sidebar on other pages.
  • The dimensions for the widget. This depends almost entirely om the layout of your website. Square aspect rations work best (equal width and height). At very large sizes (400px and up) the thumbnails might look ‘pixely’.
  • The background color for the widget. You can use to get the right value for your website. The selected color serves only as a backup if ‘Use background transparency’ is selected.

Roy Tanck's Flickr Widget requires Flash Player 9 or better.

WP-Cumulus allows you to display your site's tags, categories or both using a Flash movie that rotates them in 3D. It works just like a regular tags cloud, but is more visually exciting. Clicking the tags can be a little hard (depending on your speed setting) but does take you to the appropriate page :).

The sources code for the Flash movie are available from
