For years, I've been using the Flickr Classic Plugin, and it's always worked beautifully, but unfortunately it will not be updated to work with Joomla 4. So I need a replacement.

Finding an extension that can pull images from Flickr, and show them either as a gallery or as a slideshow is not as easy as I thought.

SmartSlider can do it, in fact I am already using it on a site that uses SmartSlider anyway, but I don't think it does galleries. And anyway, it's way overkill if all you want to do is show a simple gallery.

Then I tried SigPlus. Sigplus can pull the images from Flickr, no problem, but I don't like the way the layout looks at all. It can all be overridden with CSS, but that would signify an awful lot of work, and the result might still be a bit wonky.

Next up: Event Gallery. Overkill as well, because Event Gallery has a complete system in place for selling images - but it does in fact display a gallery very nicely. I also managed to create a sort of autoplay slideshow, but the images jump across the screen at an alarming rate :). Work in progress.
