Since my earlier post about ways to imbed flickr sets without flash, I’ve hunted around a bit more and found a couple of nice ways to imbed a number of pictures from a set rather than using a slideshow. The one I like most most is the flickriver badge creator. Here’s an example badge from my recent Washington DC trip:

 

<img title="ebatty – View my 'Washington DC Nov 2010' set on Flickriver" src="http://www.flickriver.com/badge/user/set-72157625469093106/recent/shuffle/medium-4×3/333333/ffffff/35118454@N00.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”ebatty – View my ‘Washington DC Nov 2010’ set on Flickriver” style=”display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;” />

In general, flickriver is a very cool way of viewing flickr photos – check out my “most interesting” pictures there. Dopiaza also has a similar badge maker, but I prefer the flickriver one.

Update: hmmm, the badge looks really nice in the blog editor preview but doesn’t seem to work when I publish it on posterous. I’ve now discovered that this is because Posterous is doing auto-expansion of some terms within the embedded code, and this is what is breaking it. I’m now trying to figure out if there’s a way to prevent this auto-expansion, have emailed posterous support.
