Update for Project Weather members:

You’ve probably heard that Flickr has been acquired by SmugMug. As part of the changes that are happening, the licenses to the photos in this group are remaining with Oath Inc. (which owns Yahoo). You can remove your photos from this group at any time, but keep in mind that if Oath is already using your photos, it can continue to do so. See Group Rules below for more details.

How to geotag your images

3. When you've found the location, drag the photo(s) from Findr and drop it on the map. Make sure to zoom in on the map enough to make the geotag specific. Keep in mind for your image to be seen in the app, it must be tagged in a city or town.

Group Rules

Images in this group may be featured within Oath Services (including Yahoo Weather on desktop and mobile) with your Flickr screen name. If you ever decide you no longer want to participate, just remove your photos from this group pool and your photos will no longer be shown on Oath Services, except that any photos Oath or a third party was already using before your withdrawal from the group may continue to be used. For example, if your photo has previously been used for purposes such as marketing, promotions, or by third parties, Oath or the third party can continue to use those photos.

Please read and agree to these Group Rules before submitting content to Oath’s Project Weather group (“Group”).

1. This Group is run by Oath Inc. and its affiliates ("Oath") and by joining this Group you agree to these terms and conditions which are binding between you and Oath.

2. You retain ownership to any photos you submit to the Group, however, you grant to Oath a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license (but not the obligation), with the right to sublicense, use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, publicly perform, and publicly display such photos (in whole or in part) in connection with (i) Oath Services, as defined below; and/or (ii) advertising and promotional materials (in all mediums and any media) for the Oath Services both by Oath and by third parties. Oath Services is defined as the collection of resources offered by Oath, including without limitation various brands, such as Yahoo, AOL, HuffPost, and TechCrunch, communications tools, forums, shopping services, search services, personalized content, and branded programming through Oath’s network of properties which may be accessed through any various medium or device now known or hereafter developed.

3. By adding your photo(s) to the Group, you represent and warrant to Oath, that (a) you are at least 18 years old; (b) your photos are an original work taken by you; (c) your photos are free from any third party rights; and (d) you have the full right and authority to grant the rights herein granted in all media throughout the universe, and that no one else's permission is required. You also hereby waive the benefits of any provision of law known as Moral Rights or Droit Moral or any similar law.

4. If an editor deems your submission unacceptable, your photos will be removed from the Group. All use of photos is subject to editorial oversight and review, which is a process that takes time, and there are no guarantees that photos will be used at any time. Oath is therefore under no obligation to use photos that are submitted. Moreover, please refer to our Group description page to understand the tags we are seeking with each submission.

5. When your photos are displayed on Oath Services, to the extent feasible, Oath will include an attribution crediting you with a link to your photo on Flickr. The attribution will refer to your Flickr screen name.

6. If you ever decide you no longer want to participate, just remove your photos from this Group and your photos will no longer be shown on Oath Services, provided, however, Oath may continue to use any photos it is already using pursuant to the license granted under Section 2. If you wish to remove a photo and Oath is making use of such an image, Oath will make an effort to comply with your request to remove the image on a case-by-case basis. Should you have any questions about how to remove your photos from the Group, please contact one of the Group administrators.

7. You consent to allow Oath to contact you through Flickr Mail regarding any inquiry Oath might have related to your submission to the Group.

8. Oath reserves the right to cancel the Group if deemed necessary at any stage.

9. This agreement shall, for all purposes, be governed by and interpreted and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You agree to and will hereby submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the county of New York, New York or the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. You agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts.

This is a great opportunity to share your photos with the Oath audience and promote your photographic talent. We hope you join our Group today.

Your contribution is much appreciated!

The Oath Team.
