Photobucket Images

Since flickr is going to secured API or something I was thinking about switching to Photobucket for my photos. I was wondering say I let users upload images to my photobucket and I put them in proper galleries what plugin would you guys suggest in order to showcase those photos?

The best plugin I've found to use as a photo gallery is Mosaic Menu. I've used two of the other gallery plugins, and find Mosaic to look the nicest with having the most features. It's a little bit on the advanced side, compared to some of the others, but once you get the hang of it it's a piece of cake. It can also be used for a ton of other things, not just a gallery. Granted, my experience with it was before the time of Chris1's ultimate Screen Creator and niraj's Cubbyholes plugins, so there may be even more flexibility with using something like those, but I haven't tried them yet.

The flickr api will continue to work so why switch?

I guess the real issue is finding the right plugin in order to work with Flickr's "Albums".... Tried using the plugin "Flickr Images" but can't get anything to feed into it.

The thumb viewer works and Mac images works with sets . But either way you should manually add https:// to the URL If you take a look at the api there are probably only a few changes needed for album support. I'm not next to the computer but I can try later perhaps if I have time
