Last week’s photo highlights are dark, gritty and atmospheric photos only to be “lit up” by a caricature by Magdiel Rivero. Help me find this week’s most interesting, beautiful, funny or artistic photos on Expono. Send your tips to Magnus and don’t forget to favorite, rate, or comment the photos you enjoy as I believe feedback is truly appreciated.

How does “views” work?
I’ve gotten quite a few questions about how views are calculated. The short answer: Views are unique. Bound to session id or user id. It’s not like Youtube where a “view” equals a page refresh and can be gamed. A “view” is also only counted for images viewed in medium size or larger. Views of thumbnails and small size of images are not counted.

A couple of months ago I wrote a post about how you can use Google’s Ajax Feed API to create a slide show showing photos from Expono. Creative coder Martin Jonsson took that idea further and created a WordPress Plugin for it, making it extremely simple to post photos from Expono or any other Media RSS enabled site.

Here is an example displaying my favorites on Expono

Loading...

After you have installed the plugin you only have to type the following shortcode to include a slideshow in your blog. The plugin offers a lot of parameters and options. I suggest you head over to martinj.net for the most recent documentation about how to use the plugin.

Example: How to display the latest public photos uploaded to Expono.

[mj-google-slideshow feed_url="http://www.expono.com/rss" width="500" height="332" link_target="google.feeds.LINK_TARGET_SELF" /]

Example: How to display your recent photos
[mj-google-slideshow feed_url="http://www.expono.com/magnus/rss" width="500" height="332" link_target="google.feeds.LINK_TARGET_SELF" /]
Replace my username with your username

Example: How to display your favorite photos
[mj-google-slideshow feed_url="http://www.expono.com/magnus/rss/1/in/favorites?indirect_stream_owner_id=100001&sort_by=favorited&sort_order=DESC" width="500" height="332" link_target="google.feeds.LINK_TARGET_SELF" /]
I suggest you copy the link behind your RSS icon on your favorites page to get the correct URL. If you want to do it manually you have to replace my username and user_id with your own.

Ok.. that’s it.. have a great weekend!

Photo Highlights Every Week
We thought it would be fun to highlight a couple of photos every week. The idea is that you favorite photos you would like to see “highlighted” on the blog every week. From the global pool of public photo favorites we pick a couple and post them. Beautiful photos, interesting photos, photos that tell a story, funny photos, etc.. we really don’t have to set a limit here and now. If you got some ideas about this or photos that we need to highlight, send me a message on Expono.

Starting next week, we’ll post a couple of favorites from this week (April 5th – April 11th).

Photo Highlights – Recap
In the meanwhile enjoy these favorites!
