NOTE: This post has been superceded by a better method to create a custom badge posted here

To create a nicer looking Flickr badge, use Flickr’s badge creation tool to get the right user code and content codes for your badge.

Go to:
Create your own Flickr badge and make the selections as specified:

  1. Choose HTML badge
  2. Select the content you want to show.
    • Would you like to include your buddy icon & screen name at the bottom? Choose No
    • How many items would you like to show? Choose 3
    • Which ones? Choose a random selection
    • What size? Square
    • Which orientation would you like? Horizontal
  3. Check off No background, No border.

The code will look something like the example below.

<!-- Start of Flickr Badge -->
<style type="text/css">
#flickr_badge_source_txt {padding:0; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif; color:#666666;}
#flickr_badge_icon {display:block !important; margin:0 !important; border: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0) !important;}
#flickr_icon_td {padding:0 5px 0 0 !important;}
.flickr_badge_image {text-align:center !important;}
.flickr_badge_image img {border: 1px solid black !important;}
#flickr_www {display:block; padding:0 10px 0 10px !important; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif !important; color:#3993ff !important;}
#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:hover,
#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:link,
#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:active,
#flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:visited {text-decoration:none !important; background:inherit !important;color:#3993ff;}
#flickr_badge_wrapper {}
#flickr_badge_source {padding:0 !important; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif !important; color:#666666 !important;}
<table id="flickr_badge_uber_wrapper" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="10" border="0"><tr><td><a href="" id="flickr_www">www.<strong style="color:#3993ff">flick<span style="color:#ff1c92">r</span></strong>.com</a><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="10" border="0" id="flickr_badge_wrapper"> 
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<!-- End of Flickr Badge -->

In the red text, change count=3 to count=4 to get 4 images across. Paste only the line of code in red into the table code below, 3 times where indicated:

  #flickrtbl td { width:76px;height:76px;overflow:hidden;border:1px solid #CCC;padding:3px;}
  #flickrtbl td img{ width:60px;height:60px;}
  <table id="flickrtbl"><tr>
  [PASTE CODE HERE]&t=1 </td>
   [PASTE CODE HERE]&t=2 </td>
   [PASTE CODE HERE]&t=3 </td>

That’s it – just paste that into your HTML page. Your badge will look something like this:
