Flickr Guide

Flickr is user friendly and offers users a free account with limited monthly uploads and photo sizes. For a reasonable annual fee, users can upload an unlimited amount of photos and videos for any resolution. If you are interested in sharing your photos, Flickr makes it easy to email them, send them to specific groups of users on Flickr, edit, order prints and create any number of items like calendars, photo books and mugs.

Users can add descriptions or comments to photos and keep track of how many times they’ve been viewed by others as well. If you are worried about ownership of your photos, users can also set up creative commons licenses for their uploaded images.

One fascinating tool on Flickr is the Places Project, an initiative that allows users to upload photos of specific places anywhere around the world to a map. The map is easily searchable for anyone seeking photos of specific countries, cities or even more specific locations.
 

Ways to Use Flickr

  • Share photos with others in a program.
  • Use tags and notes so other people can find the photos.
  • Embed thumbnail previews into forums, blogs and social networking profiles such as Facebook.
  • Join groups and contribute your own photos.
