Just found the Pictobrowser from Thomas Hawk's blog and it is an amazing way to embed pictures in your blog. Pictobrowser is a simple widget that allows you to display sets of pictures from Flickr directly on your site or blog using Flash and the users never leave your site. Pictobrowser is the brainchild of Diego Bauducco. Check out a sample below from one of my sets:
That’s pretty cool. Does it only work with Flickr? Could you use it if you had a folder of pics uploaded to your website?
Hi Derek. Looks like it only works with Flickr at the moment but there are a lot of free flash widgets like this that allow you to use your own pictures. Check out what Jim’s using over at audiocannon.com. Jim’s using SimpleViewer to essentially do the same thing.
