How to Embed a Flickr Slideshow
Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
The nice thing about the embedded Flickr slideshow above, is that when someone mouses over the top of the slideshow they get a set of controls. These controls can pause or speed up or slow down the Slideshow.
If someone mouses over the bottom of the slide show, they get a set of thumbnails and can go to any photo in the slideshow directly. However this will usually pause the slide show. But no real problem, since the slideshow can be easily resumed by using the top of slideshow controller.
The "bizzarre" Sand Castle photos are some that my students made as a Photoshop layers exercise. The original sandcastle photos were taken at the Frankston foreshore sand sculpture exhibit in Australia in 2008. The students then had to use these photos I supplied to them, to cut out and place the sand castles into new environments, using pictures obtained from Google Images on the web.
There is a link to a PDF document that has full step by step instructions on how to use Flickr and Flickr Slider from signing up to embedding in a Blog. This PDF may take a while to load in because it is nearly 3Meg in size.

Having had your interest aroused by the Flickr Slideshow of "Photoshopped" pictures, perhaps you (or your students) might enjoy doing a similar activity in an image editor, such as Adobe Photoshop or Fireworks. It is certainly good fun relocating sand sculpture castles to new and interesting photographic locations.
