Splashr - A Wonderful Flickr Slideshow Maker

image Readers might really enjoy trying out Splashr, a multifaceted slideshow builder that draws on the Flickr photo service. I’m assisting a faculty member here at our University who is teaching an honors course involving Art, Community and Social Change. Students will be doing service learning with the Heidelberg Project, a rather well known urban art installation here in Detroit. We wanted to help bring some of the visual interest of the project into her course site, and Splashr fit the bill quite nicely. As an example, here is a Splashr slide show of images tagged “Heidelbergproject” using the Reflector Slide Show format.  Another nice example is one for photos tagged “harmony” displayed in the Wild Daisy format. You can hide or show photo information by clicking on the “i” button, and have it play in a timed slideshow by clicking the play button, or you can advance the pictures on your own using the forward and back buttons or by clicking on a thumbnail of the photo. Splashr makes it easy to present the results in a variety of ways. The possibilities are endless…if you can think of the right tags to search on, or you can post photos to your own account on Flickr and display them.
