Displaying a photo on your website with this plugin is relatively simple. All you need is the ID number of the photo or set you want to be displayed. The photo or set ID can be obtained from the URL of the photo resp. set. For instance in:

Copy the ID from a photo you want to publish on your website. Photo's can be displayed in an article on your website by entering a simple expression like [flickr photo=xxx] (where xxx is replaced by the Flickr photo ID).
Example: Displaying a photo from flickr on the website using plugin expression code
The plugin will replace the expression with the photo automatically upon accessing the article on the website. Note that the expression will not be replaced with the photo in the adminstration interface.
Next to the id of the photo, the plugin allows several attributes to be added to the expression in order to control size, alignment and spacing of the photo .
The plugin allows the following photo sizes, supported by Flickr, to be selected:

The plugin features a download function for the original format of the photo. This option (disabled by default for copyright reasons) can be enabled or disabled in the plugin settins or on a per expression basis using the download attribute. Please visit this page for an example.
