Flickr Web Embeds

Here at Flickr we believe that taking, sharing and discovering photos is a daily habit, and with Flickr’s new web embedding feature, it’s even easier to add full-bleed Flickr photos and videos onto your personal websites, blogs and articles.

So what does this all mean? Glad you asked!

First, when embedded, your photos and videos are displayed with their full title and your Flickr name. Attribution has always been important to us, so embeds automatically add those details. Also, we keep track of views of embedded photos and videos from external sites in Flickr stats so you get a sense for how popular your photos really are.

Second, since we respect your copyrights and privacy, the embed feature is only available for publicly shared photos. Private photos will continue to remain private to the select group of people you shared on the photo.

Third, Flickr Web Embeds are contextual and interactive! If you’ve embedded a photo from a set, photostream or group, people will be able to browse through the whole collection. Because Flickr is dedicated to high-quality, full-resolution images, we are also offering a magnificent full-screen viewing experience for the photos on your site. We’ll never compress or resize your images.

So how does this work you may ask? It’s easy.

On the new Flickr photo page, just click on the share button, browse to < />, choose your embed size, and copy the code. Embedded photos will look like this:

Happy embedding! Let us know what you think, and come to Flickr Ideas to give us your ideas and feedback.
