Our Flickr images all have "junk" titles that were created by our camera (ie: "IMG_O123"). Is there a way to hide the title when people view your photos?

rename them to something meaningful... – neo Jul 9 '10 at 16:09
I'm not interested in the titles.. and there are just too many to make the effort to rename them all meaningfully.. – Marcus Leon Jul 9 '10 at 16:33

No - But, there is a way to batch rename your flickr files quickly.

  • Go to flickr
  • Click on Organize
  • In the bar at the bottom of the screen, click on Select All,
  • Drag the pictures into the main screen.
  • Click Edit photos and choose "Titles, tag and descriptions"
  • Change the title on all photos to Blank or something meaningful.
  • Click Save on each page.

It's not ideal, but it's pretty quick.

Thanks.. it's quick only depending on the number of photos.. for me it would be 67 pages worth of edits! – Marcus Leon Jul 9 '10 at 16:35
