This Action allows you to create an interactive, automatic slideshow from a Flickr end-point. You may use a User ID, a Group number, a Set number, a Gallery ID, or the ID of a person who is shown in a photo. The Flickrshow JavaScript application is written and maintained by Ben Sekulowicz-Barclay. This Action is a thin wrapper around that application, and I encourage you to explore its many other options.

Apply the Action to a layered or inline HTML box, and set the configuration options in the Actions palette. There are no JavaScript library conflicts (or dependencies).

Important Instructions

To show photos by or of a person, you will need to find the Flickr NSID of the photographer or the subject. You can find that in the Flickr API Explorer.

To show photos from a gallery, group, or set, simply navigate to that page in Flickr, then note the long number in the URL following the word gallery/ or group/ or set/. Copy and paste just the number portion into the Action interface and choose the appropriate option in the Show picker.


Flickr uses the following numerical IDs for image licenses:

  1. Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License
  2. Attribution-NonCommercial License
  3. Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License
  4. Attribution License
  5. Attribution-ShareAlike License
  6. Attribution-NoDerivs License
  7. No known copyright restrictions

The default (no licenses selected) will show all images, no matter how they are licensed. Adding one or more of these licenses (by checking its ID in the Actions palette) performs an “OR” search for images that match any of the selected licenses.

As of Feb. 1, 2013 when visiting Ben Sekulowicz-Barclay's website (link provided above), it presents a page saying that the script will not longer be developed due to the "emergence of better HTML5 & canvas-based solutions to image carousels and slideshows."
