Beautiful plugin
By , for WP 3.9.2

EDIT: I just realized the new thumbnails get squished if they exceed the max width. I've researched how to change it and only found options to show square thumbnails that cut off parts of the images. I'm sure I'll find a workaround somehow, but I'm taking a star off for that.

Uploading photos to my site on WordPress and making a gallery is so inconvenient. I have to upload each file, crop the thumbnail I want, add details, metadata, and fix the settings for every single photo. If my site crashes and the unreliable backups fail, I have to do it all over again. Then there's adding, removing, changing. It's all such a pain in the wrists.

So I wanted a way to upload my photos to a reliable external source where I do all the customizing off site, then load a simple gallery to my site. I naturally thought of Flickr and decided to finally dive into that social media world.

I needed a Flickr plugin for my site and Slick Flickr works perfectly! I had to research how to make the thumbnails bigger, but when I did, then came out beautifully. The new thumbnails show the entire image without cropping anything (SEE ABOVE EDIT). They're all the same height, so this leads to a dynamic looking gallery with images of different widths. It looks great.

Not to mention the default built-in lightbox is the best one I have ever seen and the only one I've used that works flawlessly on desktop and mobile.

Amazing plugin. I'm buying the pro version when I can afford it.

Works great
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works as it should and has a large amount of customisation options.
The only thing that is keeping me from giving 5 stars is the price for a pro version of the plugin which is way to expensive (197 pounds or yearly 37 !!!!)
Very strange in the world of wordpress plugins.

worth every penny

The slicker-flickr plugin works perfectly as galleria or slideshow loading even a flickr set.
I embedded it in my template, even as short code is perfect and the assistance is just great, fast and precise.
Thanks...!

Disappoined by another promising plugin due to price of pro version
By , for WP 3.5.1

All I want is a slider that works with a gallery for wordpress, that lets me upload multiple images and displays them in beautiful way. I wouldn't mind paying for a plugin of $20 tops but £197 one off payment for this pro version! Everyone knows the free versions have loads of stuff removed or lite and I just want something reliable that works and that I can use as someone who can't get my head around shortcode, unless copying and pasting, php, coding etc!

I am starting to realise as a photographer that I may just have to give up on wordpress, I have a decent static site but I want moving slideshows. Every plugin I try has some issue. I am rambling here but if I had $197 I would have paid someone to design my site or bought a ready made one! I can't afford this as I have no money coming in yet. I don't want to pay per year either. I want to know I own something and can use it when I want. I thought linking to Flickr's gallery would be a good way to access multiple images easily rather than using the wordpress media library but there's either payment barriers to such plugin's, or the resulting slideshow display just looks rubbish and too basic. Rant Rant Rant. Sorry for ranting.

Oh also, I don't want to go through al my flickr pics and mark them with shortcode so they include in the wordpress site, Awesome Flickr Gallery was better for that but that has rubbish slideshow.

Working and Operating
By , for WP 3.5.1

In my case I setted a maximum of 49 pictures to display and I inserted a code [slickr-flickr group_id="2145102@N20"] on my post, this way i get my flickr pcitures of my group and not by tag.

You can take a look at http://noamazonaseassim.com.br/fotos-do-amazonas/

see you guys, and thank you for the plug in

After a few hours I had an error
"Error: Fatal error: Theme CSS could not load after 20 sec. Please download the latest theme at http://galleria.io/customer/"

to fix it you have to follow these steps:

Settings --> Galleria Options --> Version (enter in drop-down menu): "Galleria not required so do not load the script"

This solved the issue (for me using WordPress) and has no impact on the gallery itself.
