Galleries are virtual showcases you create of photos & videos posted by other Flickr members. Kind of like a physical photo gallery in a city, but on Flickr.
They are a great way to engage with other members of the Flickr community and to show them you appreciate their work.
What is the difference between a gallery and group?
Galleries allow you to curate content shared by other Flickr members. You can add content to them (assuming the members have selected the setting that allows their work to be added to galleries), edit the order of those items, and remove them as you like. You can create a gallery by going to your Galleries list page.
Note: Galleries can only contain content marked as safe. Learn more about Safety Levels here.
Groups, on the other hand, allow you to add your own content based on a theme or concept. Content has to be invited to a group, or added by the content owner. For more information on how groups work, please see here.
What is the difference between a gallery and an album?
Are galleries accessible via mobile apps?
At this time, galleries can only be created & curated on your desktop or mobile web browser, not the Flickr app.
What is the size limit of a gallery?
We’ve increased the size limit of a gallery from 50 to 500 items.
How do I prevent a Flickr member from adding one of my photos to a gallery?
You can set your gallery preferences in your settings. They are a great way to gain exposure for your work and to engage with other Flickr members.
If you don’t want Flickr members to add your content to their galleries, you can also turn the setting off.
