Playing With Flickr and WordPress

I use Flickr as the main location for storing and sharing my photos. Some photos end up on Posterous and the odd one might end up on Facebook, but pretty much everything is on Flickr.

One of the things that I love about Flickr! is that you can easily post a photo to your blog from it (once you've setup the integration), but by default it gets published immediately. While that might not be a problem for a lot of people I like having a bit more control over my content. So being able to go back in and edit text, add tags, categories etc., is something that I really want. Luckily Donncha wrote a small plugin that does just that - install it and your Flickr to WordPress posts will end up in your "drafts".

The other thing I was interested in doing was "bringing" my photos into this site. There are plenty of Flickr plugins for WordPress. They all operate in slightly different ways, so I'm currently playing around with them here.

    Thanks for the tip…have been using the NextGen gallery plugin for a while and have always figured there must be an easier way to manage images on our blog. Will give this a go, thanks Michele!
