Unfortunately (due to some dumb actions by Apple), this is no longer a simple process to do. Until 10.8 this was a ridiculously simple undertaking, but now it's quite an annoyance.

remember this URL--> you'll need it later: https://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne

You'll need to follow these steps to download software, then you can configure it to feed the flickr url into your Mac.

This is how I do it, a time ago I found this new app that allows to make a screensaver with flickr photos, web pages and so; in a very easy way. It's called [Screensaver Ninja] (1), I recommend to try it.
