Photoblog theme?

I have a new URL (http://paulsphotos.org/) that currently redirects to my Flickr photos but I'd like to set up a "best of" blog (kind of a photo a day blog like the excellent Daily Dose of Imagery site, although I expect mine will be weekly).

I'd like to use WordPress just because I'm used to configuring and adminstering it, so I'm looking for a photoblog theme; I really like this Polaroid theme but I want one that links to photos on Flickr - I don't want to upload pics twice.

Any recommendations?


Update: The site (http://paulsphotos.org/) is now up; thanks for the help!

You should be able to do what you want with the Flickr API Key and some php hacking.

That sounds like hard work :)
A good techie always tries to find the easiest route, especially if someone has done it before ... and I've got to believe this has been done before.

Pffft! What's a little php copy & pasting!? :P

I am pretty sure that there are php plug-ins that will also work... if/when I locate 'em, I will paste 'em to this post. :)

P.S. Once you get the API key, it appears to be plug and play from there on out. :D

or you could just add a WP blog into your flickr acc't ... (it's already there .. just checked)

D'oh! I have that set up so I can post to LJ - I wonder if it'll let me post the Large photos and not just Small/Thumbnail size pics?

The largest it will post is 500x on one line

http://www.flickr.com/blogs_layout.gne

(not sure if that link will work)


Nope, doesn't. Just go to Blogs and click "layout" instead of settings. That's were you can configure size posted
