Creating a TiltViewer Flickr Gallery

If you already have images on Flickr, the easiest way to create a gallery is to load your images and text from Flickr. Set your Flickr user id and optional tag names in the HTML document that contains TiltViewer.

Note: Due to Flash Player security restrictions, Flickr galleries will only work when uploaded to a web server. For more details, check the FAQ, Question 2.

To create a Flickr gallery, follow these steps:

  1. Download and unzip TiltViewer files to a new folder. This is your gallery folder.
  2. Edit 'index.html' in your gallery folder using any text editor. Set the 'useFlickr' option to true:

    fo.addVariable("useFlickr", "true");

  3. Enter your Flickr user id in the 'user_id' option. To find your Flickr user id, enter your Flickr user name on this page. For example to load all images from user '48508968@N00':

    fo.addVariable("user_id", "48508968@N00");

  4. To show a subset of your Flickr images, use tags. Add a new tag to all the images you want to show in Flickr. You can define your Flickr image tags here. Now use this tag in the 'tags' option. For example, to load all images with tag 'showcase':

    fo.addVariable("tags", "showcase");

  5. Set additional configuration options (optional).
