WordPress Gallery

WordPress.com has a brand new feature – the ability to serve up galleries and slideshows from within the Media Library. No need to go to Slide.com or Photobucket anymore. Except, the amount of text you can include is really limited to just the title. Which is a shame. This gallery is of the 6 ‘Most Interesting’ photos I have on Flickr, according to their algorithm. Tomorrow I’ll publish a slideshow when it’s time for my monthly poll for Photo of the Month. I’ve already tried it in preview. I have to say, whilst useful, I have seen better and more customiseable slideshows. I’m not sure it is a feature I’ll use too regularly. Although it is nice having it built within the blogging platform. Hopefully the WordPress team will develop them into a more complete and aesthetic package.
