I just came across a new hosted photo service called Fotopedia that offers a great way to create quick, elegant photo gallery widgets that you can share on your website within minutes. You can also integrate Fotopedia with your Flickr account (thanks JOI ITO) to display your Flickr image sets inside of their slick HTML widgets.
How to Get Started
- Sign-up at Fotopedia.com
- Download the application, Windows or Mac.
- Create a gallery. On a mac this process was simple, all I had to do was drag and drop my photos from iPhoto.
- Use the Actions menu to create a new Widget. You’ll be redirected to Fotopedia.com where you can customize your options.
- Copy and paste the HTML snippet provided to your website and your done.
I’ve created a quick video walk through showing exactly how easy this process was. I’ve also included a sample of the HTML Widget to accompany the demo.
