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 ...
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.
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:
Update on 4/Sep/15 - The above Sencha feature appears to be unavailable now. However there is ...
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.
From Yahoo! Help:
You'll lose access to all of your data and content like your emails, email folders, Flickr photos, calendars, Yahoo Fantasy teams and Yahoo Finance portfolios.
Means once you delete your Yahoo! id, you will not be having access for the Flickr.
This question has been asked on the Flickr Help Forum. You can check the forum for more ...
The date can be changed using the "Organizer". Do the following steps.
Access the Organizer from the "More" menu select "Organize"
Then add the photos which dates need to be changed by dragging them from the bottom to the area which says "Drag items here to edit them as a batch"
Then click the "Edit Date" button and set the date.
Photopin.com, which indexes photos from flickr.com, supports partially this feature. It is still not entirely compliant with the CC attribution requirements mentioned in the question.
On Photopin, once you find an image, you hover over it and click "get photo" which brings up a dialog as such:
The last part "Grab HTML for Attribution" is a step in the ...
Flickr seems to run on the Yahoo! profile system.
Once you get yourself logged in, in Flickr's title bar on the far right is a button to open a user presence menu.
Open Settings, and on the bottom of the Personal Information tab you'll see Yahoo account options, one of which will be the ability to associate your Flickr account with a different Yahoo ...
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.
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 ...
You can do it from Organizr
Click on "More options" next to the Search button. Select "Only show private content" from the dropdown.
Select all photos, drag them to the centre & then click on "Add Tags" & add the relevant tags
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)
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,...
