The About page is a great opportunity to tell the Flickr community who you are. Any time you see a pencil icon on this page, you'll be able to edit the section & make it your own.
To get to the About page on a desktop, hover over You | click About.
The description section is one of the first things fellow members will see when they visit your page. Here's where you can share a bit more about yourself (your profession, where you're from, what types of photography you enjoy) -- the sky's the limit!
In addition to the month and year you joined Flickr, you have the option to show additional details about how other Flickr members can get in touch with you including contact information & social networking links (such as your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram usernames or profiles).
Some of this information is automatically entered into the fields, such as the date you joined the Flickr Community, and your email address. You can choose if you want to add other information.
You have complete control over who can see your Current City or Email. Clicking on the People icon next to those fields will allow you to set the privacy level. Other fields can be left blank to protect your information.
You can also control who can see your Email Address, Real Name and Current City by changing the privacy settings for that information.
Note: If you choose to make your location visible, this information will also appear in your Profile Header.
This is where you can display up to 25 of your favorite photos. You can select your photos when using Flickr on a web browser on your laptop or desktop. Keep in mind that only public items can be added.
The title of this section is editable-- so you can personalize this "Showcase" to fit how you'd like this selection of photos to be represented.
