Pictobrowser is Very Slick Indeed


Kevin Dugan tipped me off to this super cool new Flickr toy called Pictobrowser. Pictobrowser allows you for the first time to blog not just photos from Flickr, but sets of photos from Flickr. What you see above is my Super Favs set from Flickr, shots of mine that have been favorited 25 times or more on the site.

If you want to go through these photos one at a time you can just click on the photo you are viewing and it will jump to the next photo.

Diego Bauducco developed the tool. It is flash based and represents a way for the first time that I’ve seen yet that an individual can browse an entire set on your site without every having to leave your site.

In the past, while Flickr would generate html code for you to blog individual photos, there was no visual way to blog sets or albums of photos. And yet sometimes an album is something that you are more interested in sharing than a single photo.

Nice work Diego. This is a cool and fun toy to have indeed.

    I love that bridge photo. It is the background image for my 30 Boxes Webtop 🙂

    Very cool! I only wish clicking on the image itself would take you to the flickr page of that image. Would make it easier for me to fav… But very cool!

  3. Very cool..I recently went on a trip where I struggled to pick a picture to post to the blog to represent the set. This takes care of it! Unfortunately it’s having issues resolving my flickr username, but maybe it’s a PEBKAC.

    Hey, thanks so much for the post!
    The real and hard work was done by the Flickr Team that is publishing an API for others to build little things like pictoBrowser. I sure don’t deserve all the credit.

    (Kurt, sorry man… Flickr only lets pictoBrowser see photos from public sets, that’s why your userName doesn’t work)



  5. Diego, it was definately PEBKAC (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair). I wasn’t using the correct user name. I was able to put it to work on brockett.net without a problem.

    I love the way that you can use the thingy itself to create your own, or at least get the HTML to.
