Using Flickr

Page history last edited by PBworks 16 years ago

                  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.

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.
