Using Flickr for sharing

0

Now that there is 1TB for free per account up there, it’s time to figure out how to use it, here are some tips:

  • There is an automagic uploader, it watches files on your Mac and when it sees a change, it does an automatic upload and discards duplicates. It automatically sorts the photos by their position in the directory which is awesome if you like me have sorted your photos by time stamp into different directories
  • There is a group feature which allows people to add all their photos into a particular group. Groups have a nice URL. The base user interfaces seems to restrict yo to just six photos per click to post, but if you go into the Organize tab, then you can select any album and shove that entire thing into a group. Pretty useful.

  • It also allows 3 minute videos to be uploaded as well.

Here are some other tips:

  • In the Groups page, you can multiple select by clicking on a photo, then go to the last photo you want and CTRL-click.

  • If you want to send an entire album to a group, you don’t click on the add to group user interface. That one only allows six at a time. The way to do this is to use the Organizer interface (http://flickr.com/organize) which let’s you select an entire album and then send it to a group. I don’t know why this is asymmetric, but it is 🙂
