The photo uploading site Flickr, currently on an spree of self-improvement, has recently revamped its web embeds for its users. Attribution comes right up front with all embeds displaying the title of the image or video file, along with the Flickr username of the person who owns the material.

If you have a website, one of the best ways to showcase your activity on other sites is through the use of widgets and embedding. It’s a win-win for everybody involved. The owner of the material – you the user – gets material to showcase on your site, and the website owner gets linkbacks to the site and free publicity.

With Flickr embeds, you can look forward to high quality, uncompressed full resolution images, by viewing images full-screen. Flickr also monitors the views of each embedded image and video on other sites, so you can see how popular that embedded image or video was.

To show you what such an embedded image looks like, here is one of my images from Flickr.

Finally, in case you’re wondering, only public photos will benefit from the embedding feature. So if you have marked any photos private, then they will stay private.


Let us know in the comments what you think of the new and improved web embeds. Are you using them on your website?

    Hello! Everyone.

    Haven't you people heard of ICHARITY where you register with only #6,000 and you will be paid #30,000 next day or after your registration.

    You dont need to be worried of people to be merged under you because the ADMIN of the SITE will take care of that and automatically the SITE will merged five persons under you to pay you #6,000 each to tally your money to #30,000 immediately after you have registered and been confirmed by your UPLINER.

    This is the fastest way to make money now and recover from the money MMM has gone with because MMM has gone and it has gone forever and dont you ever have it mind that MMM will come back, but ICHARITY is standard, fast and reliable and payment is made into your ACCOUNT instantly after your registration and confirmation by your UPLINER.


    If you are interested and for more info, kindly call the SITE ADMIN for direction on how to register and get paid instantly, or you can as well add him up on Whatsapp with this number:+2349031886632

    Looks good - also works on mobile devices as it's not reliant on Flash

    I admit it does look good and I do like the way it displays full details attribution etc but it does have major issues for blogging etc. My main use is to embed specific photos in specific places within my articles. I dont really want users to be able to scroll through other photos. This new system is just not as flexible as the previous embedding options. Its a shame they cannot have both systems available as currently I have to cobble html embedding in my html editor.

    The entire flickr website has been blocked in Foley Alabama for some reason.
