What is Flickr?Flickr is a website that allows users to store, sort, search and share photos online. When it launched, it was the first of its kind to provide a public platform for photo sharing. Now the options include Facebook, Instagram and countless others. Ron Mader and Planeta.com are still fans of Flickr and are happy to share tips for making the most of the service.

Screensaver functionality is not available at this time. Flickr will be updated with screensaver support as soon as possible.

TipsShare photos in relevant groups.

TipsFave a photo! (For details, read on.)

Can I keep photos private – Yes. You can select this option as you upload pictures.

How do I share a photo with a group? – If you belong to a specific group, just add your photo to the group pool (if not, join the group first, because only members of a group can contribute to the group pool).

The easiest way add a photo to a group is to go to the photo’s page, and click on the ‘Send to Group’ button that you should see between the photo title and the photo itself. Click that, then choose the group you want to send it to, and you’re done!

Planeta groups include Accessible Travel, City Parks, World Museums, World Parks and Mexico Baseball. We also contribute to Mexican Palette and the Mezcal Pool.

How do I fave a photo? – When you are looking at a photo’s individual page, you can tell the photographer (and the world) that it’s one of your favorites. If you have a Flickr account and you are logged in, you will see a button on the left hand side of the photo which reads ‘Add to favorites’. Click!

Can I put my Flickr photos on my website? – Yes! You can configure a dynamic badge of Flickr photos to add to your website.

Can other people see my faves? – Yes. When another person looks at your favorites, they see all the public photos in your collection.

HOW DO I PROTECT MY PHOTOS FROM BEING DOWNLOADED BY SOMEONE ELSE? – You can set a global preference that controls who can download your photos. Just select a setting — from “Only Me” to “Anyone.” This setting applies to all your photos and is combined with your privacy settings.
