Getting your stuff onto Flickr
There are loads of tools to upload your photos and videos
Uploading on Flickr.com
One of the easiest ways to get your stuff onto Flickr is to upload it right here using flickr.com/upload.
Select as many items as you like from your desktop. Once they've all arrived here, you can add tags, make sets, et cetera. There's also an earlier-generation web uploader that we now call the Basic Uploader.
The Flickr desktop uploadr sits on your desktop for heftier uploading needs or offline photo management. Drag and drop single photos or videos, or select a whole folder. Even reorder how photos will be displayed in your photostream.

Third-party Upload Tool Plug-Ins
Please note: Flickr is not responsible for the distribution or performance of these 3rd party applications.
jUploadr for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows
Another Flickr member, scohen, wrote an upload application, which he describes as: "jUploadr is a cross platform Flickr uploader. Currently it runs on Windows Linux and OS X. It allows you to set all properties of a photo before you upload it to Flickr. It also supports batch editing, so you can make short work of uploading a bunch of files." It is available for download from an external website
Eye-Fi Memory Card
Eye-Fi makes wireless memory cards that automatically back up and organize your photos & video. With Eye-Fi you can send your photos & video directly to Flickr - and you can send all or just your favorites. Just turn your camera on and Eye-Fi does the work for you. It is available for sale on an external website.
If you are interested in adding to this toolset, you might want to investigate the public Flickr API.
Or if you're more of a desktop developer, the Flickr Uploadr is an open source project. Download the source and build it yourself!
The Flickr badge
Follow the step-by-step process to build a badge to show Flickr photos on an external website. You can choose which photos you'd like to display, and set colors for the badge. Then all you need to do is copy and paste the code we give you into your website.
