If you have a Flickr account and you wish access your private photos you need to click on Authenticate and follow the authentication procedure. In any case you can download any public photo from users photostreams, groups and sets.

4) Add one or more queries. For example you can enter your Flickr username or a group name, here you can see a query on the "Natural Landscapes" group.

Since most groups and photostreams contains thousands photos you must set the maximum number of photos to download. To limit the number of photos a good idea is to enter some tags, they must be comma limited and will help to download only photos you like.

Click on the "Check" button to test the query, Wallpaper Slideshow will try to connect to Flick server and will display the number of photos selected by your query or whether there is an error.

After you added one or more queries you can close all windows by clicking on OK buttons. Wait some minutes to allow the plugin to download some photos then try to change wallpaper, you will see your Flickr photos displayed on your desktop.
