Display Modes

There are three ways to display a Flickr Slideshow; using a Lightbox viewer, as an embedded Flash player or as a gallery with social media links and image descriptions.  In Lightbox mode, a "view slideshow" button appears on the page, and users will click that to access the slideshow.

You can display images from a set, or select images based on tags. In the example below, we're selecting images tagged "library" from SCU's Flickr collection, and have set the slideshow to display in Lightbox mode.


In the following example, we're supplying the ID for a Flickr set, and have set the slideshow to be displayed as an embedded Flash player.


The Gallery option displays the images with a companion group of sharing links, and includes the image description from Flickr.
