What is Flickr?
Flickr is a website where digital photos can be uploaded for sharing via the internet. Basic accounts on Flickr are free of charge.
Sharing images with taggingWhat are tags?
Tags are like keywords or labels that you add to a photo to make it easier to find later. You may also have the right to add tags to your friends' photos, if your friends set that option in the privacy settings for their photos.
Is there a limit on the number of tags I can add to a photo on Flickr?
Yes. It's 75 tags per photo.
I've added my photos and tagged them but I still don't see them on the photostream. What now?
To display on the BAM/PFA website, the photos need to be tagged correctly with our keywords. Check that your image isn't private, that you have included all of the tags we specified, and the tags are spelled correctly. Our website picks up newly tagged photos within a few hours. If you check back in a while, they should be displayed. Click here for info about new flickr accounts.
Sharing images in group poolsI've got a Flickr account. How do I find a Flickr group like the "L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA" Group?
Flickr groups can be found here by typing the name in the search field. Once you join the group (click "Join this Group?" and confirm), you can share your photos by submitting them to the group's pool.
I've joined the Flickr Group. How do I add my photos?
Go to your photo's page, click on "Send to Group," and then select a group like "L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA" from the drop-down list. That's it! If you want to add a lot of photos to our group in a batch, click on "Organize," go to the "Groups" tab, select all of your photos from the filmstrip (at the bottom) and drag them into the group.
I've joined the group, and added my photos to the Group Pool, but I still don't see them on the photostream. What now?
To display on the BAM/PFA website, the photos need to be submitted to the correct Flickr Group (such as "L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA"). Our website picks up new photos from the pool within a few hours. If you check back in a while, they should be displayed.
