Using Flickr as image Gallery

I have uploaded all my images to Flickr using Adobe Lightroom's photostream. I have 125 images. Now that they are on Flickr I want to use the Flickr gallery widget on my Yola site to present them.

I want 21 images per page, 3 columns wide - which I have setup in the menu. This all works fine but when I come to create another gallery on another page to do the same again it send across the same 21 images. how can I make sure that the next batch of 21 images are different.

Hope you can help me with this.

Thanks

Hello Stewart,

Thank you for your e-mail. When want to create another gallery of photos, drag over another Flickr Widget. In your Flickr account, make sure you have given your new set of Flickr photos different tags than you were using for your first gallery or you will not get the desired result. In the "Search" field, enter the new tags of the photos you want to pull from Flickr. You should now be able to bring up your next set of photos.

Please let us know if you have any trouble with this.

when you mean tags do you mean keywords because most images have the same keyword or Tag? how can I define the tags?

Thanks

Hello Stewart,

When signed in to your Flickr account, please follow these steps:
1)Click organize and create
2)Click Batch Organize
3)Drag images into the editable section
4)Once you have the images you would like to add tags to, click 'Add Tags'
5)After you get the response 'Tags Added', click 'Thanks'

Once you have added the tags, you will be able to follow the guidelines I gave you previously.

Please let me know if you struggle with this.
