Can I embed photo slideshows on other sites?

Updated: 03/27/2014

Love to flaunt your photos on the internet? How about a slideshow to tempt curious viewers to your site? As a SmugMugger you can configure your own slideshow snag the code to post on websites, blogs, or forums.

In New SmugMug

Click the Share Icon under the photo in SmugMug style or Lightbox view.  Then click Show Off.

In Legacy SmugMug 

Show off

Look for that Share button (or Owner Share) at the top of your gallery pages. Click that and you'll see the Show Off option under the Owner Only section.

Gotcha: For your slideshow to work, the site to which you're posting should allow HTML. Additionally, viewers must have Flash to see the goods.

Wait, can anyone share my photos like this?

No. Don't worry about visitors being able to use these features to post your images without your consent. These features are only visible to you as the logged-in account holder. Even if you have Easy Sharing turned on in your gallery settings, visitors can only see the top four options.

Create Slideshows

By default the flash slideshow will be fairly small and the images in it will display in random order. Look at the preview and if you like it, you can skip to Copy Embed Code and paste it into your website right away.

If you feel like tweaking, click the Configure Options button to see what else you can do. This will bring up a window with lots of customizable parameters.

When you're ready to preview your changes, click the Update Slideshow button and watch your new presentation appear. Copy Embed Code will grab it to your clipboard so you can post it into the site of your choice.
