What is Flickr? Flickr is an American online social networking service, and an internet community as well. It was established by Ludicorp in 2004 and is now a hugely popular method for professional and amateur photographers to host high resolution images on the web. It has changed ownership many times over and is now owned by SmugMug as of April 20th, 2018.
A Flickr account is a simple way to upload, share, and view photos on Flickr. One can use a Flickr photo management page to upload photos, comments and tags. One can even set keywords and search criteria so that search results are customized for one’s Flickr photo albums. It is also easy to manage one’s Flickr account from within the WordPress blog. In this article I will explain how to get started with a Flickr photo management page and upload and manage photos.
Flickr allows you to access your own gallery so that you can upload pictures that you have taken. To do this you simply log into your Flickr account using your Gmail or Yahoo account, then go to Settings > General then add your Flickr credentials, click Save. Once you have done so you can browse through your own gallery where you can choose from a wide variety of filters such as Landscape, Fashion, News, Religion, Cartoons and Teen photos. You can also search for specific keywords to narrow down your results.
There are many other sites on the web that allow photo sharing and organizing such as Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon and others, but none have the level of community behind on Flickr. Users can add and remove tags, create albums, vote on photos submitted, comment on pictures and add friends all from the comfort of their personal pages. Flickr has taken online photo sharing to a new level. One reason why I like Flickr is that unlike Facebook, there is no need to connect up your email address to your profile to be listed in their photo albums.
In addition to being easy to use, fl Flickr is also very stylish. They have an interface that is very similar to that of twitter or Facebook. When you sign up for a free account, you are given a basic template that you can customize to your liking. You can use a Flickr to share written content, photos, videos or both and you can set up groups to follow other photographers or experts in your field. As mentioned earlier, fl Flickr also offers great functionality for sharing written content.
The first time I joined fl Flickr, it was very easy to navigate around and set up my own albums. I like the photo-sharing aspect of fl Flickr, but once I was able to get organized, I realized how useful a Flickr really is as a community site. I am not a member of any groups on fl Flickr and I do not plan to be, so this feature helped me stay organized and not lose any of my followers’ interest by constantly tweeting about the newest things I was working on or uploading new images.
Another great feature of a Flickr is the ability to use a Flickr together with Twitter. Twitter uses the Flickr API to automatically post images that have been uploaded by users on Twitter. To use fl Flickr and Twitter together you simply have to add tags on your Tweets using the Flickr photos tag. You can also use the Google Maps tag which is displayed next to each Flickr photo on the map. The great thing about using a Flickr with Twitter is that you get a seamless integration of two powerful social media sites into one.
So if you’re looking for a great way to organize your online images and communicate with others, check out on Flickr. If you are not a Flickr user and don’t want to be, then it’s definitely not a tough decision to make. It’s an amazing community of people who are interested in seeing beautiful pictures around the world. I would encourage you to visit fl Flickr and take a look around, I’m sure you will find some great uses for this awesome social media site.
