Who would have thought there would be so many Flickr tools and 3rd party programs? It kind of looks to me like there are people out there with programming skills who don't have enough to do. LOL I played around with a few of them but didn't find anything I thought would be useful in the library, though that's not to say there aren't any, I just didn't have a lot of time to spend on looking. I did play a little bit with one called Gickr--allows you create animated GIFs (GIF animations) from your flickr photos. It's homepage is: http://gickr.com/
I thought it might be used to display photos on a web page or blog.
I can't say that I like the effect at all. The animation shows up on a separate window from the blog.
