Yahoo Flickr Photos

RecDesk allows you to display individual photos slideshows in your RecDesk Community portal by allowing you to include "embed code"  from Yahoo Flickr**.
Creating Embed Code for an Individual Photo, Photostream, or Slideshow using Yahoo Flickr:
1. Go to, sign into your existing Yahoo account or create a free Yahoo acount, and upload your photos. Note: Be sure to "Organize" your Photos and change Permissions (Who can see, comment, tag?) to Anyone (Public).
2.  Get the embed code:
  1. Click on the photo
  2. Click on the Share arrow on the bottom right-hand side of the screen
  3. Click HTML embed
  4. Click on the drop down arrow and choose the size (width should be 486px or less)
  5. Click on the gray box containing the HTML code; it will turn blue
  6. Right click on the blue highlighted code and copy it to the clipboard
3.  Go back to RecDesk Director and paste the embed code in the Image Gallery Embed Code field in the Facility definition, or follow the steps under Inserting Embed Code into Content if pasting into the content of your RecDesk Community portal. See Image/Slideshow/Video Embed Guidelines for important tips.
