I found a new (to me) toy for embedding slideshows in any web page. I was inspired by String and I to figure out how to do it. She uses Picasa's features to embed her slideshow, but I am a flickr lover. What to do?
It turns out the flickr forums are a wonderful source of shared user information. People have been embedding slideshows in their blog entries for years! I found a link to Paul Stamatiou's cool tool, flicrSLiDR, and voila!
Note: This works a whole lot better in my Firefox browser than it does in Internet Explorer :-/
