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?
