Flickr offers an incredible platform to connect with friends and family, discover captivating images from photographers worldwide, and share your unique perspective of the world.
Once you've created your Flickr account, the sky's the limit! Here's a brief guide to get you started on your Flickr adventure.
Personalize Your Account
The About page is where you display your best and brightest.
Introduce yourself, exhibit your exceptional photography, and personalize your personal details on your About page. It's an opportunity to let others get to know you and admire your remarkable talent behind the lens.
Additionally you might want to customize your profile header:
Upload & Share
While free accounts have an upload limit of 1,000 safe items, if you decide to go Pro, your storage space is unlimited, and you are able to upload moderate or restricted content.
Pro members also have access to our Auto-Uploadr feature which will work to automatically upload your content from your devices to your Flickr account.
When uploading, be sure to check your privacy settings. This allows you to decide who can see your photos & can be updated at any time.
Note: Free accounts are limited to 50 non-public items.
Now that you've uploaded photos, learn how to keep them organized. One of the most efficient ways to organize your photos is through the Organizr.
You can also make photos easier to find by tagging them with keywords, people, or even geo locations.
Share and keep in touch with friends and family, or get to know new photographers. Follow others to get their latest updates, comment on each other's posts, or private messages with FlickrMail.
You can also share your photos on social websites or blogs.
Flickr groups bring people together with similar interests and a keen eye for the amazing. Share, view, and comment on topic-specific photos or discuss any topic that fits your fancy!
