Thanks Martin - I appreciate the example as I was having a hard time trying
to determine what it would look like.  That small Flickr link isn't bad.
We'd probably be more interested in a thumbnail gallery if possible though.

I looked a little bit at their API, but since I haven't done a ton with
integrating stuff via an API, I'm a little lost.  I better study up some

Will certainly make life easy for you

Flickr has a very strong API - not used the others.

Depends - you can have them on your site as a screenshow - look at how they
integrate into Posterous for example:
and there are plenty of RSS feeds/APIs to just grab the pics by set, by tag
or whatever, but Flickr ToS require you to put *a* link back to Flickr, so
you can't totally debrand it.
