Update Given your new specific question, there is no possibility from Flickr itself. I don't know the reason, but unless somebody finds a backdoor for that, you won't be able to do that. You could of course (as a workaround) program an application that uses the Flickr API to fetch an image from an URL and upload it to Flickr. Wouldn't be that hard to do. ...

If going deeper and wider is better, then that's why it's better. That's really all there is to it. A collection can contain sets and other collections, going down as five (5) deep. That is you can have the following nests/groups: Animals collection Four-legged set Domestic pets set Winged creatures collection Winged creatures ...

You can use your current Gravatar image by selecting the web URL, but this will then be uploaded to Flickr's server, and will therefore not stay up to date with your Gravatar image. Basically this is no different to if you were to upload the image from your computer. Therefore you cannot use Gravatar as your buddy icon.

One of the most important ways to organize photos within a group is using Flickr tags. They can help you in several ways: As an administrator, you may request that all photos which are added to the group pool have a specific tag. See, for example, the group rules of Our Daily Challenge: http://www.flickr.com/groups/ourdailychallenge/rules/. The group tag ...

there are couple of ways you can do that. Using browser extension For Firefox there is great extension called Save images which lets you download images from the page automatically, I think same can be found for chrome. But my Favorite is simple application called wget. It is a command line application which can download anything from a given page, you ...

It looks like you are entering the coordinates in the wrong format. These are valid formats for coordinates: 37.794721, -122.401388 37°47'41"N, 122°24'05"W 37°47'41", -122°24'05" 37°47.6833', -122°24.0833' geo:lat=37.794721 geo:lon=-122.401388 Or you can search for addresses or landmarks, the more specific the better. These are ...

No, there's no way to organize photos within a group. You could have galleries maintained by an administrator (although they won't be linked to the group; you'd need to provide links in a sticky comment thread or the group description), but these are rather limited.

It seems Flickr does not have email support for Tumblr, yet as described by a staff member 7 months ago: Although, we currently do not support posting to Tumblr blogs via upload by e-mail, you can submit your idea for improvement or feature request to Flickr ideas: www.flickr.com/groups/flickrideas/ I have browsed the topic and have not seen the ...

Pixelpipe is great for transferring your images between various photo sharing sites. The feature allows you to quickly select any photos, video or audio files that are currently hosted on Pixelpipe & export them in bulk to a selection of 20 of our most popular services.

I'm not sure how photos can be organized once added to a group, but what I found is that if the pictures are organized first (say in an album), then batch uploading this set will add them to the group in that sequence.

You can't. When you select an image for your buddy icon, Flickr will create a copy of it and allow you to play around with that. Not all buddy or profile icons have a corresponding photo page under the account as it may not even be from that Flickr user's album. But, you can at least find out who owns the profile when you hit them up. Their profile ...

You can resize any image from any domain using Sencha.io Src service. Append the URL of the image to be resized to the end of the Sencha.io Src URL while also specifying the desired dimensions in the URL: http://src.sencha.io/32/32/http://example.com/670image.jpg Update on 4/Sep/15 - The above Sencha feature appears to be unavailable now. However there is ...

If you have a Pro account, you will have access to the original version of the image, which in the case of a GIF or PNG (but not a TIFF, where the "original" is a converted JPEG, not the actual file you uploaded) will be whatever was uploaded. You could use the link to this original on the external site. The resized versions (which are all a free account ...

Flickr don't have support for it. From their support page - Flickr officially supports JPEGs, non-animated GIFs, and PNGs. You can also upload TIFFs and some other file types, but they will automatically be converted to and stored in JPEG format.

Thanks to the code.flickr.com blog, I found out that they actually maintain a fork of Leaflet. It seems like it was never updated or tweaked on any way, being simply a frozen version of Leaflet at a commit from June 2, 2012, which corresponds to version 0.4. Looks like an upgrade is in order :)

I'd also noticed the web page was down, so left a message on Michael's blog last night and he's fixed the DNS issue that was causing his SortMyPhotostream page to be unavailable. If you try it again now hopefully you'll have access again. See last few comments on his blog post. http://atastypixel.com/blog/sort-your-flickr-photostream/

There is an app that claims to do this (I haven't tested it myself): Flickr photostream update - A cool app to sort your photos by taken date instead of upload date http://flickrstream.webzardry.com/

It is possible to search for images using regular expressions on Flickr, just like on Google Image search. Instead of typing (Yahoo|Google) ("Image search"|"Web search"), you would type (Yahoo OR Google) ("Image search" OR "Web search"). (Make sure that the "full text" option is selected instead of "tags only".)

To answer my own question, this is not possible, due to the lack of permissions at the set / collection level in Flickr—if any pictures in a set are public, it appears under your sets (publicly). If the set is in a collection, the collection also appears, with its full mosaic thumbnail, even if those pictures are private. The only real workaround is to ...

I think you can create a Flickr with a google account. That's what I did and I don't remember having to fill these informations. (apparently not) EDIT: After reading the terms of service You can use Flickr for non profit, but it seems to be tolerated more than encouraged. In any case you must be register as an individual. Maybe using the company owner,...

3gp is a common shared between the 3 services you asked for. The only limit you have is on Flickr where the video must be shorter than 90 seconds, so only 1 minute and 30 seconds long for this service.

As an alternative, consider using ifttt. There are already quite a few recipes for posting flickr photos to tumblr

No, this is not possible. The only thing you can do is customize the layout of your public profile page.

You can also use Flick and Share: http://www.flickandshare.com It's a free web service that allows Flickr users to generate a short-link to automatically download all the set's pictures in high-resolution. Generated links are private so you can use it for your backup but can also be shared with friends if you need to let someone download pictures of an event ...
