Flickr is probably the most popular image pool on web. No doubt that Awesome Gallery supports it. You can build your galleries based on user’s streams, image sets, or group image sets. As an example, let’s try to build a gallery based on an awesome watch macro work by Ming Thein.
Step 1: Sign in to Flickr
First things first – you need to be signed in to Flickr. Assuming you already created a gallery, all you need is to go to Flickr tab and click “Sign in to Flickr”. You’ll see a new tab with Yahoo login page. If you still do not have a Flickr / Yahoo account, it is a good time to do that.
Step 2: Create a Flickr application
Next, you need to create a Flickr application. It is not easy to find where to create it if you are not an Awesome Gallery user. But, fortunately, you probably are 🙂 So, you can just click a “Create an Application” button at the Gallery editor:
After filling up the form you’ll see after choosing the app type, you’ll receive two application keys generated by Flickr.
Step 3: Copy keys from Flickr to Awesome Gallery
You’ll see two application keys generated by Flickr for you:
Now, you need to copy them to the Awesome Gallery editor page:
Step 4: Check if keys are valid
Step 5: Select Flickr username
Just enter it into the following box and check by clicking “Check user” to make sure it is spelled correctly.
Step 6: Choose what user’s data to show
And after choosing the user you want to work with, there is just one more step – which photos to show. You can select user’s stream, one of user’s photosets, his favorites, or group pool for one of the groups user belongs to.
Step 7: What goes where
Step 8: Visual polish
And at last, you can adjust visual settings. Don’t forget to save your gallery 🙂
That’s all, folks!
