Flickr + Ghost

How to use Ghost and Flickr together

All content from Flickr works with Ghost automatically via our OEmbed integration. All you have to do is paste a URL!

If you’re already sharing photos on Flickr then you’ll probably want a way to embed those images on your Ghost site. Using a robust external photo storage service is a great way to manage a large photo library and maintain optimum performance. Here’s a quick guide for how to make things work:

Copy the URL of the photo

Grab the URL of the photo you’d like to embed into your post or page

Paste it into the Ghost editor

When you paste it into the Ghost editor it’ll be automatically transformed into a rich embed of the photo you selected

Publish your post

That’s all there is to it! Ghost interacts with Flickr via their OEmbed API in order to retrieve all the correct settings automatically and serve your photo in the best way possible.

Here’s an example of the end result:
