Using Flickr

                  Using Flickr

 

Flickr is a photo-sharing website with "social networking" features.

 

It allows you to use photos through a function called "Creative Commons" which gives permission for use of photos uploaded there.

 It also allows you to upload photos of your own, or  to comment on other user's photos.

 

It allows you to automatically feed photos of your own or another user into your blog.

 

Examples:

WHSCareerTech blog  photos of China visit on blog

Not So Distant Future  photos on my library blog of our activities

Teach and Learn lesson with annotated image that teacher posted to Flickr

 

Many photos on flickr can also be manipulated, if the owner of the photo gives permission.

Tools like fd's Flickr Toys give many options to you for photo manipulation of Flickr photos or your own photos, like the "stamp" below.

 

Other handy tools:

 

Splashr allows you to create postcards, slideshows, mosaics, etc, by either entering in a subject (tag) you want photos about, or by using the feed of someone‚Äôs Flickr account.
