Guest Pass Question

porsche_supercup says:

If I send someone a guest pass to a private album, does the recipient acquire the ability to only review and perhaps download photos in that album, or do they have the power to also delete and edit photos?

Recipients of a GP can ONLY view and download pictures. But they can NOT do anything else on your account.

(Bear in mind that you need to set your download permissions as "anyone" since there are no separate permissions for GP recipients.)

How do you set up a Guest Pass? Can't you just forward the address for the album from the browser?

Sure, if the content is public. If it's private, you need to use a guest pass, or else no one will be able to see it.

Just entered "guest pass" in the Flickr search box and found the links.

I'd only want to send public files, so I guess either link will work?

You don't need a guest pass to share public content.

A guest pass is for sharing content with someone who wouldn't normally have permission to see it.
