Flickr foto info


This plugin shows a small toolbar over photos from Flickr embedded in your post. The toolbar buttons when clicked show Location, EXIF and lots more in a Thickbox

The Live Flickr Comment Importer Plugin features

  • Uses the inbuilt jQuery and Thickbox scripts.
  • Most calls to the Flickr API are done on the client side – so there is minimal additional load or delay on the server.
  • If your photo has geo-location data embedded, shows it as a marker on Google map with reverse geo-location to fetch the place name
  • Shows most interesting EXIF data first with option to show the complete raw data
  • Shows information like title, description, number of views and comments, tags on the photo, sets and pools the photo belongs to and links to various sizes if there is permission
