09 Mar 7 Best Flickr Plugins For Your WordPress Blog (2021)
The perfect and simplest way to add Flickr photos or profile album on a WordPress blog is through adding its widget. But to get that widget you need to have a plugin installed that can bring in that functionality. So here is a guide on demand covering best Flickr plugins for your WordPress blog and all you need to do is to go through this compilation.
There may be any kind of reasons behind the urge to display Flickr profile or pictures and that too of either your own profile or of someone else. But still the urge is there, and that’s what matters.
Since you’re not experienced enough in finding better plugins on your own (otherwise you wouldn’t be here), so I planned of sharing the list with you guys. I’ll mention plugin list with brief individual details and their links.
Just like always I’d recommend you to get ready for all kinds of requirements you have related to adding Flickr on WordPress website and then start matching them with features offered by recommended plugins from my side.
Note – Don’t add this functionality to your website/blog unless necessary because it will increase a total number of plugins by one and also increase page load time.
Best Flickr Plugins for WordPress
Finally, here is a list of best WordPress plugins for Flickr photo sharing tool and getting them installed is just like any other WordPress plugin. I hope you have finalized the Flickr profile or gallery you wish to display. All options I’m adding are available for free, so nothing to worry about pricing.
#1 Slickr Flickr
This one is the first, most popular and widely installed plugin that is available on official WordPress plugin directory. It can be installed and setup easily and in return it will provide lots of related features. It can let you display photos as a gallery or even lots of galleries. You can run a slideshow of the same and it even got a widget ready to be added.
Other pictures related features being offered are sorting options to arrange images via date, title, and description, manual or auto play slideshows, LightBox integration, and you’re allowed to add this gallery or a single picture anywhere around the post, page or in the sidebar or may be in the footer. A simple plugin it is which is already updated to be compatible with the latest version of WordPress script.
#2 Flickr Badges Widget
Remember the photostream feature over Flickr? This particular plugin can help you display the same through a widget right on your WordPress blog. You don’t need to learn using a high-end tool for that rather this plugin offers a simple to use tool that can do the wonders. With over 10k active installs, it had always been rated 5 stars out of total 5 which clearly indicates its credibility.
It supports NSID of Flickr and also offers elegant looking design elements. Up to 10 images can be displayed of the photostream and that’s the limitation. You are even allowed to resize images right within the Dashboard area without affecting the quality of the actual one. So try it out.
#3 Flickr Justified Gallery
This one is a newly launched plugin (an upgraded version of earlier one that is outdated now) and covers features like image customization, SEO friendly pagination, picture title display according to mouse move and fast performance. You’re allowed to show pictures with tags that clearly means that filtration is really easy for you to .
You can decide if you wish to continue using LightBox or Colorbox or even Swipebox as all three are compatible with this plugin. The best feature is that displaying a photostream is possible and that too from either a photoset or gallery or a group pool. I’m sure it’s going to be more popular soon.
#4 Flickr set slideshows
This next one is rather a simpler one in comparison to above mentioned, but it brings certain design elements which are elegant enough to increase and maintain user experience. It does what it meant to and what you’re expecting i.e. adding slideshow from photo sharing platform of Yahoo!. It does supports shortcodes.
#5 WordPress Flickr Embed
It adds an optional panel inside which has clear and simple user interface and allows users to search for pictures over Flickr but right within the Dashboard, sort the search results and then select which particular ones are needed to be displayed and which not. You can insert a picture on your own right inside this tool and can even put and manage different links of them. It also comes with visual editor toolbar.
#6 Flickr – Pick a Picture
This plugin also allows the same thing as of above one, but it does provide certain image editing tools which is good for the sake of additional options but will count on performance. You can crop, rotate, flip and resize pictures you found using the search tool. Previewing images before using is possible, and you can also set adding of caption automatically which is fetched from photostream.
#7 Alpine PhotoTile for Flickr
This is the last one I’d recommend, and its developer is keen to provide help and support to each user. You can even find Quick Start Guide on its listing in the Plugin directory. It comes with a widget and even supports Shortcodes. Displaying images in the sidebar, posts or pages are all possible along with LightBox integration to make the interaction iconic and further impressive.
Over to You
I’m hoping that you found, at least, one plugin that is bringing total features you were demanding and also hope that you’ve better experience using that. Since I had only mentioned better options, so chances of finding any situation is really low but still if you find any issues whatsoever, kindly let our team know that through discussion section. Cheers.

I’m working my way through this list trying to find a Flickr/Wordpress plugin that still works. So far the first three are no longer functional using the Evolve theme.

This article was written back in March; I guess it’s due for an update. I will go through the list and remove the ones no longer working and present new ones. Thank you for visiting please bear with me.

Hello, please do you know of plug in for wordpress that can import images from Group pools rather than a personal account? I’m doing a website for my camera club, so need the club’s Flickr group to be imported.
