Yesterday, a Slickr Flickr Pro user had problems trying to display a single photo. The photo was in a photoset and he was trying to display it using the start parameter which starts a slideshow at a specific position in a list of photos, however it was not picking the right photo. Finally, after some support, he was able to display the photo by applying a unique tag to it. So he was able to do what he wanted but it required a bit of extra effort.
In Slickr Flickr 2.4 I have implemented a much simpler solution which does not depend on the position of the photo or on extra tags: all you need is the photo_id which is available on the URL when the photo is viewed in Flickr.
Example of Single Photo
slickr-flickr search="single" photo_id="5377885922" type="slideshow" size="m640"
tree with snow
You can display the photo as a slideshow (with a single slide, as a gallery with popover lightbox or using the galleria), include titles and descriptions, links back to Flickr; all the same features as are available when display several photos.
How To Find The Photo_Id Of A Photo On Flickr
The photo_id is a unique 10 or 11 digit number that unique identifies the photo. It is found on the browser address bar in the URL of the photo page. Just click on the photo in Flickr to navigate to the photo page
The URL is of the format is:
For the photo above the URL is https://www.flickr.com/photos/russelljamieson/5377885922/ which means the photo_id is 5377885922
Please note that if you navigate to the photo via a photoset or a tag then extra information with appear at the end of the URL. For example, if I go via a photoset then the URL will be https://www.flickr.com/photos/russelljamieson/5377885922/in/set-72157625754542173. All you need for Slickr Flickr is the photo_id which appears immediately after my Flickr name.
Example of Single Photo In A Galleria
Here is the same photo again this time using the galleria.
slickr-flickr search="single" photo_id="5377885922" type="galleria" size="m640" galleria_options="carousel:false"
