Hi, I saw this in another group and think its a good way to see other peoples photos and show off your own.
Look through the photostream of the person above you and then post your favourite shot and add a comment of the photo that is your favourite.
Admin note: Please use small image sizes.
Post image URLs between square brackets.

Hello, I don't want to discuss here about the algorithm behind the Explore, because it has been deepened enough all over the Web.
My question is: what's its sense? I mean, OK it's a matter of personal tastes, but frankly .. 70% of the photos on Explore everyday are terrible. Or at least VERY normal photos (I don't want to post here any link to not offend anybody). I gue...
Hi all I use to get so many views everyday like when I put a new foto on my views would be like 400 to 1,200 by the next day :)
But with the new flickr update my views have drop :( as I put on a new foto and it only had 48 views in 20 hours :( ?
when do you cross the line with attention seeking
. is it when your skills in networking outclass your skills in photography ?
there is interesting article here on how NOT to get followers
that should set the cat among the pigeons and provide an interesting debate.
what's your favorite camera+ lens, which you have used or would like to use? and why?
my favorite which i have used:
Camera body = Contax G1...because it's beautiful and powerful.
Lens = Carl Zeiss Planar T* 45mm F2...because it's one of the the sharpest lenses ever made.
The iPad was released in 2010 -- over three years ago! Why haven't you created an iPad app? With the power of Yahoo! behind you I would have thought you would have been first to the punch... but no. Instead you left 500px beat you with their iPad app. But I don't want 500px, I want Flickr dang it!
Please, please, please create an iPad so I can enjoy br...
Cuando una foto es publicada ahí la gente felicita a su autor. Porque? Es sólo un algoritmo automático, según dicen, por el cual flickr coloca en un sitio especial 500 fotos elegidas al azar durante 24 Hs. Algunas fotos destacables y la mayoría no. Y peor aún, hay fotógrafos que de alguna manera lograron hackear el algoritmo y su fotografía es vista en ese sitio si...
New to Flickr? New to FlickrCentral? Want to say "hello", tell us what interests you?
This is the official thread for introducing yourself to the group!
Please keep it short and sweet, and feel free to include one representative photo (small size, please!).
If you'd like to tell a lot more about yourself, make sure to join a group such as FlickrSocial . See its welc...
Does anyone know how to find the photos that have not been grouped into a set/group/tag? I organize my photos in set then browse them, but obviously I missed some photos and can't pick them out. Thanks!
I installed Win 8 on my PC and with the new software I also installed my usual photography related programs, Photoshop CS6 and Topaz Add-ons, fortunately everything seems to be working very well. Also the new Metro interface has a cool that allows you to see the pictures from your pc, facebook and flickr, it looks great and feels great... I was kind of sceptic regarding th...
Flickr has removed the menu from More Actions where it was possible to edit Title, Comment and Tags.
The tags can now only be removed from the site where your photo is shown.
On YouTube you can edit by double clicking the tag however it's not possible here.
You will have to open a new window in Organize and drag your photo to the batch area and select Edit photos.
"You may know that Flickr is one of the largest repositories of freely usable public domain and Creative Commons photos in the world, hosting collections contributed by libraries, national archives, foundations, museums, galleries, and individual users (I've uploaded more than 10,000 CC-BY-SA images of my own). However, with its latest redesign, Flickr has made is very dif...
When I first tried Beta, it had critical deficiencies. Avoided it for a long time. Tried today, and found it pretty good, with several improvements & few quibbles.
One thing is still broken! Admin Invites don't appear except in the "Add to Group" dialog, and they don't work. Can't accept or reject them. Clicking on one just returns and error "there was a problem de...
Notice I said photo sharing and not photography. What is the future of photo sharing? It's all the devices that allow anybody to take a photo and in a instance upload it to the web. I understand many photographers will either get with the program or die a slow death or even just play along.
The emergence of high quality cell phones cams has turned this question upside d...
If you want to see your new Flickr page in the classic style then you just need to press the edit button on your page.
To see other people's pages the same way you need to add ?details=1
at the end of their url.
You can then easily see your view counts and descriptions etc.
Hi to all,
Since they changed flickr, I can't see my pictures properly anymore.
The files, on my screen, look good, with properly saturated and bright colors. Then I upload them on flickr, and what I see is grey and dull pictures, with desaturated skies, bluish red tones, and so on. And a result, the views, the faves and the comments have drastically dropped.
Do you h...
We should have a place where we can reminisce about threads gone by ... you know, the ones that you could have sworn were here yesterday, but which the all-seeing eye has vanished into the æther.
Remember that guy who joined FC (indeed, Flickr) apparently for the sole purpose of soliciting folks to give him free photos for a book? The "guy walks into a bar" thread bubbl...
