Hello guys,



So, I've recently been a bit ****ed at how difficult it is to (properly) post a photo from Flickr to Dyxum and decided to make a Web-App to take care of that, you just enter your username (the one in you URL). For example, my flickr page is http://flickr.com/photos/argote/ so I'd enter argote into the box and click on the button. The codes to post any (or all) of your last 20 images will come up along with a thumbnail of the photo and you just copy it and paste it into Dyxum (or any other IPB forum).



So here's a couple of screenshots:

















And here's the link:



Argote's Flickr poster for IPB forums BETA



http://flickr.argote.mx/



Secondary:

http://luisargote.com/flickr.php



Feel free to make any suggestions, keep in mind that this is still in BETA so things might go awry.



I have tested this on Opera 11.01 and Firefox 3.6.6 where it works perfectly, I've also tested it on Internet Explorer 8 where the font color for the legend is wrong and in Chrome 5.0.375.99 where the text makes one of the elements overflow its area (it still works though, I'll look into this soon).



I have several future improvements in mind in no particular order (that I'll go about making sometime in the future)



- Put the codes in a TextArea and have it be autoselected (and maybe copied) on click (this currently doesn't work because I'd need to get rid of the HTML on the description)

- Make the page NOT break if some kinds of HTML are included in the description or title

- Make the page more aesthetically pleasing - Halfway done...

- Enable selection of what data to include - DONE!

- Enable selection of what photo size to post - DONE!

- Enable you to select photos other than your 20 latest on the photostream - DONE!

- Integrate with location information (possibly with google maps) to add a small image of the photo location to the post - Halfway done... does not currently work with Dyxum













Feel free to share any thoughts.

If you accidentally pressed the button before inputing your name and are having problems with the loading, then refresh the page.

Also, if you want to load another user, refresh before doing so (I'll work on this too).

Basically, try using refresh if you run into any problems.

@ Luis

Speaking purely from an Administrator POV, could you reduce the heading size to our standard type size? (size=2)

TIA

I also find the title a bit 'shouty'... I like the automatic adding in of exif data, although I think I'd drop the Camera make, mode and 35mm equvalent bits as well and possibly add in ISO speed.

Wow, nice work! I wonder if this same thing can also be done with Picasa web albums?
