Recently moved SmartSetr to a new host. That means the site should be stable from now on! Thanks for sticking with SmartSetr!

Group Description

SmartSetr is a site that allows you to create SmartSets for your flickr photos. SmartSets are fully managed by the SmartSetr site.



SmartSets are sets on Flickr that are updated for you in an automated way. For example, if you have a SmartSet based on the tag "flower", anytime you add photos to flickr tagged with "flower" they will automatically be added to your flower set for you (after you click refresh on SmartSetr).


To update the photos contained in your SmartSets you must come to the SmartSetr site and click "Refresh All SmartSets". By clicking refresh, SmartSetr will query Flickr for the photos that match the set criteria and add them to the set. I am currently working on a way to automatically update everyone's SmartSets throughout the day, as well as a bookmarklet to let you manually update SmartSets.


There are several types of criteria that you may use to create SmartSets including tags, text, date taken, and date uploaded. You may also filter the SmartSets by privacy level, and you may sort the SmartSets by a variety of criteria including interestingness, etc.


For text based SmartSets there are several search operators that may be used including AND, OR, and NOT. For example, to create a SmartSet that contains all of your photos of red flowers you would create a SmartSet based on the text "flower AND red".


Your Flickr sets that are SmartSets should be fully managed by the SmartSetr site, except that you may change the primary photo for the set on Flickr.


To give feedback see the topics in this group or send a message to me on Flickr.
