Welcome to the Extraordinary Cultures Around the World Flickr page! We are excited to provide you with an online community to share your photo memories with your fellow travelers.

Pick your favorite pics to post to this group. Don’t forget to give each a title and in the comment box below the image please include your name along with any other information you’d like to share in the comment box below the image. The date of the photo already appears as part of the images as “Additional Information.” Below are some tips on how to enhance the photo gallery experience even further with tagging and mapping.

Tagging
Adding tags will allow those other users searching on Flickr to find your images if they pertain to their fit their search parameters. We ask that you tag the photos you load into this gallery with “Smithsonian Journeys” along with any other pertinent tags that apply to the image in terms of location and subject. Tagging is simple:

1. Open the photo you’d like to tag.
2. Under the “Tag” section on the right-hand column of the screen click “Add a tag.”
3. In the text bar type a description of the photo and click “Add” when finished.*
4. Repeat until all the tags you’d like have been added.
Note: Flickr will separate tags longer than one word into multiple tags.
*For mulit-word tags put quotations around the words, otherwise the phrase will separate into individual tags per word.

Mapping
If you’re really feeling ambitious, anchor your photo to the map so everyone can see exactly where it was taken and track the path to the sites you visited. To do this, follow the instructions below or visit www.flickr.com/help/map/:

1. After opening the photo you’d like to map, click on the option “Add to my map” found in the section “Additional Information” on the right- hand column of the screen.
2. A map will appear with a bright pink viewfinder in the center.
3. Move the map around until you find the location where the image was taken in. You can also search for a location in the top right-hand corner of the map.
4. When you have settled on a location click “Save to Map.”
5. A prompt will appear saying whawith thet location was selected and the selected what privacy settings. the photo mapping is on
a.If you chose the wrong location click “edit” and move viewfinder to correct location and save.
b.Leaving the photo mapping privacy as is allows all Flickr users to see where your photo was taken. If you’d like more privacy, a variety of options are available.
6. When you are satisfied with your choice of location click “Done” and your photo will be mapped!
