Rolled My Own “onblack” Flickr Photo Page.

Decided to make my own Flickr “on black” page. I’m fed up with waiting for Flickr to allow users to display their photos on plain black background, so I took Flickr’s PHP APIs and wrote a simple script to display my own Flickr photos on plain back background. Out of laziness, I’ve been using http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/onblack.php until now. I saw neon green on their top bar, and that prompted me to roll my own version. I added some minor touches such as total comments/favs on mouse over, and next|prev links to navigate through my photostream.

For comparison, here are the two onblack versions.

For now, the script only works on my own photos. I might remove that check in the future.
