Exhibition – A new way of looking at Flickr

Whilst I was away in the Hawkes Bay, I had a vision to use a Flickr Feed and some jQuery magic to create a realistic “Gallery Wall”.

The design is to look like a photography exhibition, as it would be on the wall of a museum or art gallery.

The great thing is, I’m releasing it to the world for people to use on their personal sites. It has very minimal requirements, and simply needs a few set up lines of code to be edited.

How to Use:

  • Edit the setup.php file: Add your Flickr User ID.
  • Add a default tag: Can be left blank. Add ?tag=photography on the end of the url to make a gallery page that shows all photos tagged with “photography”.
  • Change the Gallery Name: The title of the page, plus the logo in the top right hand corner.

And you’re ready to go! Upload to your server (must have PHP) and enjoy!
