How to Display More Than 20 Photos in a Flickr RSS Feed

Are you integrating the display of photos stored in a Flickr account with your website or mobile app? Then, you’ve probably run into the limitation of native Flickr RSS feeds where you are only able to poll the 20 most recent photos.

Thankfully there is a workaround that doesn’t require you to go to the trouble of creating a Flickr API key or using some other off the shelf solution.

Alto Maltés has provided a solution that uses Yahoo Pipes to create an RSS feed containing up to 500 photos from a Flickr photo set. JSON and other alternatives are also available.
