Topic: How to create an embeddable Flash slideshow.
A Flash slideshow is a great way to showcase your photos - such albums are light weight and provide fast loading speed.
Photo! Presentation Widget service lets you create flash-based slideshows online, with a few mouse clicks. You can add photos either from your computer or from the internet via an URL. Then, you can share albums any way you like: save them on Pho.to hosting, or get an embed code for easy posting on forums, blogs, etc.
Currently, the service can extract photos from Flickr™ photo service. In future, we plan to support other popular photo services.
Creating a flash slideshow with Photo! Presentation Widget is easy and fun:
Open Photo! Presentation Widget service. You will see the following:
First, in template selection window, choose Flash slideshow.
Then, there are three ways to add photos:
1) Upload photos from your computer with the 'Upload' button.
2) Select photos from Flickr™ by tags or username. Click 'Flickr' button to start.
Enter Flickr user name or a tag (or several tags), and the service will immediately find the photos you need.
3) Add photos by copy-pasting their URLs. To do so, click the URLs button.
In the opened window, copy & paste an image URL (or a text containing image URLs) into the text box. Click the "Add" button and the service will automatically extract all pictures from the text and add them into your slideshow.
A tip for advanced users: You can also use a web page source code to add images from a webpage. To extract the source code, open a web page and use the browser menu or hot keys mentioned below:
Firefox: View->Page Source or Ctrl+U
Internet Explorer 6, 7: View->Source
After you are finished with the photo selection, press the "Create widget" button to instantly view your flash photo slideshow. After an easy registration process you will be able to save it on Pho.to hosting and get an embed code for easy posting on any web page.
For your convenience, we have implemented fast access to popular blogs and bookmarking services to publish your photo widgets there.
