How do I get started ordering prints, books, posters, etc. on my photos?
You can print any of your photos on Flickr using "Order prints and more" in the More menu on the photo page. If there's a batch of your photos you'd like to print, try using Organize & Create.
You can also make photo books, calendars, and other fun stuff in the Organizr's Print & Create tab. The Organizr makes it easy by letting you filter photos by set, tag, and lots more. After you've selected the ones you want to use, just choose what you’d like to make and you'll be taken to our printing partner Snapfish to customize it.
If you're having trouble deciding which photos to include, throw all the ones you are considering into the batch in the Organizr. When customizing your project over at Snapfish you can always take out any that don't make the cut.
Can anyone print my photos?
You can control who can order prints of your photos. By default only you can print your photos.
When you allow other members to print your photos, they'll be able to use the link in the More menu above your photo and on set pages to order prints. Even when this is enabled, other people can only order prints not books, calendars or other products. Only you can create products with your photos.
What happened to pickup at Target?
We still have local pickup of prints (and in more locations) but you now choose that option later in the ordering process. After choosing the images you'd like to print you will be taken to our printing partner Snapfish. When finalizing your order there you can choose "available for pickup" if that's an option in your area.
Target is no longer one of the pickup spots but Snapfish offers pickup at Walmart, Walgreens, Staples, Duane Reade, and other partners.
What does "Not recommended for printing" mean?
We try to make sure that your prints are going to look nice, so as you choose photos to print, we try to present the best options for you, based on the photo's size and resolution.
There are minimum resolutions we recommend for the products that you can buy. Here's the list:
|Wallet Prints (x4)||270x180|
Can I see a big version of the print I'm about to order?
When you see the contents of your shopping cart at Snapfish, click preview under the photo. A new window will pop up displaying a larger version.
What does it cost to print?
Print prices vary slightly depending on where you are in the world. To see exact pricing information in your area just set your location in print settings. (When it isn't set we show U.S. prices by default.)
After this is set, just open the "Actions" menu above one of your photos to order prints or check the Organizr to see the prices for your printing location.
How can I preview my book, calendar, etc. before printing it?
After choosing the photos you want to use you'll be taken to our printing partner Snapfish where you can customize and preview your creation before ordering.
Tip: If you're having trouble deciding which photos to include, throw all the ones you are considering into the batch in the Organizr. When customizing your project over at Snapfish you can always take out any that don't make the cut.
What image formats can be printed?
Currently only images uploaded as jpeg or jpg can be printed through Snapfish. GIF, png, and other image formats are not currently supported.
