Want to put a flash photo gallery on your site for visitors to see everything going on in your club? We did at www.dunedintoastmasters.com with Google Picasa. It is as simple as copy and paste!

Here's how:
1. Sign in or sign up for a Google Account.
2. go to picasaweb.google.com
3. Click on MY PHOTOS
4. Upload some photos into an album.
5. Click on the Album
6. Over on right, click on LINK TO THIS ALBUM
7. Click on EMBED SLIDESHOW
8, Adjust the settings as desired and copy the HTML code.
9, Go to your site.
10. Launch the Admin Console
11. Paste the code where you want it!

Feel free to check it out on home page! I had to play with the styling to make it come out right but I think it is pretty slick!

Love it. I have sent your example to my club's officers to see if they have interest.

I am curious... People also have said they do something like this with Flickr. I have not tried either.

Have you also tried Flickr, and can you contrast some of the pros and cons of using one or the other?

I tried to do the same and Flickr but could never figure it out. This morning I thought about Picasa while I was in my Google account. I searched for the answer and boom it was there.

I googled and did find these:

flickrslidr.com/
www.flickr.com/help/blogging/#2937
www.flickrslideshow.com/
www.slideflickr.com/
lifehacker.com/210683/how-to-embed-flickr-slideshows

The last one seems pretty comprehensive with the iframe embed code that you would insert in Source view.

Not trying to take away from your great contribution, but I know that a lot of FTH users use Flickr, and that is why I brought it up.

Of course, not offended at all.

Perhaps Flickr would have a better transition setting. Google has none, you get what you get.

I am having trouble accessing flickr at the moment. (Support Request submitted).

Are both of these flash based? I'm wondering if they show on Apple devices.

Will someone plz test on their phone/pad/laptop. This may help decide the winner of the slideshow showdown at the FTH corral.

Good catch! I checked in Safari thinking it was all good...

Of course the flash doesn't work on apple, if Flickr has a iframe, they are the winner! Picasa does not provide an iframe.

Looks like I am switching.

Greetings,
Where do you post the link for flickr or google photos in the admin console in order for the slideshow to show on the website cover page? Is this feature only available with a domain site?

To edit the Home Page open the Admin Console and it is in the Club Website Settings (the first window that opens). Scroll down to Main Content

Thanks for responding, but that didn't correct my problem. Maybe I did not explain what I was trying to say.

I visited another club's webpage and on their cover page there was a slideshow of pictures playing. That's what I would like to do to our club website cover page. I've created an album on Flickr and Google Plus......hopefully you can help with making this happen.

Thanks much.

Can you post a link to the site so I can see what you are looking at? That would be helpful.

shylikaglickman:

You need to use an HTML element called an iframe to embed your Flicker slide show in your home page.

The following shows you how to create the appropriate iframe code that will reference your slide show:
lifehacker.com/210683/how-to-embed-flickr-slideshows

The following shows you how to embed iframes using the WYSIWYG editor such as is used for the home page:
docs.cksource.com/CKEditor_3.x/Users_Guide/Rich_Text/IFrame

This editor for the home page is as Rob Tuttle described in the first screen of the Admin Console.

I'm not seeing an option at the picasaweb.google.com link to embed HTML code. I checked out flickr too and couldn't find an option to embed the code here either. I did see an option for a link, but that's about it.

I did. I tried pasting the code with my flickr user ID (my google ID) and the page is saying no photos found. What am I doing wrong?

I suggest that you post your iframe code here using the code button above (with the <> on it) so that it does not get reformatted. Then we can take a look at it and make suggestions. You may need to specify a tag for a photo grouping if you have that, or you may need to create that so that your photos can be found. I am not an expert on this... just was experimenting before.

Also, you might try the following, since it looks like it will help create the iframe code for you: flickrslidr.com/index.php
Then you could just paste it into the appropriate spot in source view.

Ok, I modified your post very slightly to properly show the HTML code as code. We cannot see all of what you originally posted, because sometimes when you post HTML (without the code & /code tags in your post), the HTML gets mis-handled by browsers.

There is a couple of things I see in your post:
group_id ("group_id=&") does not look like it has a value ... maybe try omitting it and the corresponding & if you do not have an appropriate value

set_id ("set_id=&") does not look like it has a value... maybe try omitting it and the corresponding & if you do not have an appropriate value

If that does not help, then I would suggesting private messaging RobTuttle to see if he has any ideas, since I know he has done this successfully. He is not on here often these days, but if you PM him it, it will go to his email.

I wish I could assist you further, but I just don't know what to tell you to try next. As I noted, you may want to try to PM RobTuttle, or maybe Flickr support to get the proper iframe code.

I know it is possible to get it working... see here for example: dunedintoastmasters.com/

Here's another option to consider. I set up an Instagram account for my club. I post all our photo's there. It gives us the social aspect of Instagram, so members and other can subscribe to see all new photo's. It also makes it easy to snap and share a photo from your smartphone. Often at an event I'll snap and share a few photo during the event.

To add them to your site, you can use these free widgets http://snapwidget.com/#getstarted

You can see a sample on our web site here http://pinnaclespeakers.toastmastersclubs.org/ . Just scroll down. There's also a twitter widget on the page and the video at the top was made with an iPhone app called Qwiki.

Cheryl,

I experimented a bit with this, and the following works for me when I paste into Source view:
<iframe frameborder="0" height="400" scrolling="no" src="http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=73297293@N05" width="400"></iframe>

I am now recommending using Flickrit ( flickrit.com/ ) for producing Flickr photo slideshows.

Flickr has been moving towards Adobe Flash for slideshows. Flickrit is the only tool I have found for doing Flickr slideshows with iframes, which I tend to prefer.
