Flickr.rb - Limiting photo results!

I’m returning my photos to my site, but I’m want to limit the result to
like 5 photos or something. Right now, it’s returning all of my public
photos.

What I’m attempting is to do some sort of counter loop in the view to
limit this, but it seems like the API would have a count or a limit
option.

Does anyone know how to limit the photos returned by
“user.tag(‘red’)”???

If not, do you know of a good way to loop through and limit the results
to only showing 5 photos?

Thanks a bunch!

Without looking at the flickr API, the source for flickr.rb does not
appear to support such an option.

user.tags(‘red’)[0…4] should get the first five in the collection.

Good Luck,

Awesome. Thanks!

The Rails/flickr screencast at
http://media.rubyonrails.org/video/flickr-rails-ajax.mov shows a way to
limit the number returned. They’re getting the pics a different way,
but
perhaps you can adapt what they are doing to your purposes.
