I have been testing the new Wordpress 2.9 oEmbed feature for the last few days. The issue I have is that I think oEmbed service at Flickr doesn't provide the large (1024) size of the requested photo (I'm assuming a bigger original photo, so that automaticly generated big size file exists).
I just updated the flickr oembed code to support the medium 640 size and the large(1024) size when maxwidth or maxheight is specified. The default size returned when neither are specified is still the medium 500px size.
It looks like a while ago, Flickr only served, via oembed, images no larger than 500px. From playing around with some oembed requests, it appears that Flickr now serves images of 320, 640, and 1024 px.
I'd like to use images that are 500px wide (496px would be ideal, but I'll take what I can get at this point). Is it possible to get those 500px images via oembed?
