My Solution to Flickr Album Slideshow

Flickr no longer seems to support RSS feeds for Albums. And I couldn't get the Photo Album Gadget to display images at full screen. So I used instead the RSS Gadget with Flickr's RSS feed and tags to get my selected photos to display at full screen.

I created a full-screen (1920x1080) placeholder containing an RSS gadget. I assigned a unique tag to all my Flickr photos that I wanted to display in my presentation. Using Flickr's provided RSS feed options, I created an RSS feed URL that selects both my user ID and my unique tag (https:api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=XXXXXXXX@XXX&tags=MyTag&lang=en-us&format=rss_200) I set Queue to a number high enough to include all my photos and Items Count to 1 (to display only 1 image at a time). I chose the format option that displays only the image and saved.

It works! I have a full-screen photo slideshow that displays a select group of images from my Flickr feed.
