How best to host a simple photoblog -- plug-in or Flickr? (2 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently running a site (Photosensitive.ca) that I am about to move over to WordPress. My site currently is a real "dog's breakfast" with photographs run off of Folderblog and text blog entries in a Wiki (seemed like a good idea at the time!)

    I would like to use WordPress to create an integrated photo/text blog -- something with the same look/feel as the photoblog I have now, but that will allow text-only posts as well. I have a Flickr Pro account and am happy to store my photos there, if it makes sense to do so.

    I've browsed through the add-ons and there seem to be a whole bunch related to Flickr integration or photoblogging, and I'm not expert enough to tell which is best. I'm also not a programmer and my technical skills are limited to "recipe-following" and basic HTML and CSS.

    With that in mind, what would you all recommend as an easy-to-install and easy-to-use photoblogging tool with WordPress?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I built a photoblog on top of flickr. It might fit your needs. It doesn't integrate in wordpress, but I didn't think it made sense to - it's just php&flickr.
