Wil C. Fry's Flickr Help Notes

Updated 2014.04.15

Back by popular demand, this page lists copy/paste responses for Flickr's Help Forum. I no longer guarantee that this page is up-to-date or accurate in any way. Also, many of my screenshots might depict old versions of Flickr's photopage or FAQ. Use at your own risk. However, I have attempted to update it to account for the 2014.03.25 changes.

How do I download all my photos at once?

With Flickr, you can only download one image at a time, using the "All Sizes" option on each image's ••• ("three-dot") menu.

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/8793006733/"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7322/8793006733_d5ce2b266e_o.png"></a>

There is a third-party app called <a href="http://flickandshare.com/">FlickandShare.com</a> that offers free bulk downloads of your Flickr images on a per-set basis. I have tested it successfully with several sets as late as 2012.

Note: As of March 25, 2014, you can download various sizes of your image without leaving the photopage.

How do I upload photos to Flickr?

1) Click the "upload" link at the top of every page (except the photopage, as of 2014.03.25)
2) Go directly to http://www.flickr.com/photos/upload/
(either by typing or pasting it into your browser's address bar, or using a browser bookmark)
3) Use a third-party uploader from the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/services/">App Garden</a>
4) Upload via email (<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/account/#47">relevant FAQ</a>)
5) Upload straight from several image-editing apps like iPhoto, Lightroom, Picasa, etc.

How do I delete a photo?

There are at least three ways to delete items from your photostream:

1. On the photopage: open the ••• ("three-dot") menu, then "delete photo".

2. In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: double-click a thumbnail and click the red "delete photo" button

3. In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: drag photo(s) to the batch operations area, click "edit photos", then "delete"

(Not to mention that the most complete way to delete all your items from Flickr is of course to delete your account. <b><a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/account/#48">Flickr FAQ: How Do I Delete My Account?</a></b>)

Be warned, there is no "recycle bin" on Flickr; deletion is permanent; make sure you have copies on your computer. Also note that Flickr photos exist only in your photostream, deleting them will also make them disappear from sets, groups, galleries, or other websites where they are displayed.

How do I sort my photostream?

The images in your photostream will always appear in the order they were uploaded (with the newest one on top), because of Flickr's format as a "photo blog." So the easiest way is to upload them in the order you want them to appear.

If you didn't upload them in the order you wanted, then the order can be changed manually by editing the "date posted", either from the photopage (in the "three-dot" menu) or in <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>, but it's tedious.

Many of us find it simpler (and staff recommends) to organize photos in sets and collections. Those can easily be auto-sorted in any order you want.

(Note: There are third-party apps, like <a href="http://www.h4ppy.com/h4ppier-photos-widget.php">h4ppier</a> and <a href="http://www.flickr.com/services/apps/72157603740215703/">Sorter</a>, that allow batch re-ordering of the photostream.)

200 Image Visibility Limit

This limit was lifted on May 20, 2013.

One of the <i>former</i> limits of a free Flickr account was that your photostream would only display your most recent 200 uploads. Sets, archives, or direct tag links from your photostream are all parts of your photostream, so the images wouldn't show there either.

How do I add tags to my images?

There are a bunch of ways to tag images:

<b>1) Before uploading (file metadata)</b>

—There are several freeware apps with which you can edit an image file's metadata. Some offer batch-tagging. This way, the tags are saved with the file, so they're on Flickr *and* on your computer.

<b>2) Before uploading (upload apps)</b>

—Flickr's <a href="http://www.flickr.com/tools/">Uploadr</a> and other uploading apps allow tags to be added just before you click the upload button.

<b>3) During upload</b>

—If you use Flickr's <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/upload/">web interface</a> to upload, you can add tags to each image as they upload in the background, or bulk-add them to several images at once.

<b>4) On the photopage</b>

—Use the tag icon at lower right to make the tags tab visible, then click "add a tag", type tag, then press "enter" to save.

<b>5) In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a></b>

— double-click any image to edit the text fields
— batch-add tags using batch processes in Organizr's main page
— use the "add a tag" menu option when a set is open (adds to every image in the set)

<b>6) Using third-party apps</b>

—In Flickr's <a href="http://www.flickr.com/services/">App Garden</a>, there are several free apps that let you add and edit tags for existing images on your Flickr account.

How do I remove tags from my images?

There are several ways to remove tags on Flickr

<b>1) On the Photopage</b>
Click the 'X' that appears next to a tag when you hover over it.
(This is the easiest way, if you only want to remove one tag from one image.)

<b>2) In Organizr</b>
You can double-click any thumbnail, then edit out any tag, then click 'save'.
(This might be faster than loading the photopage, if you're already in Organizr.)

<b>3) On the Tags page</b>
If you need to remove all instances of a particular tag, go to your Tags page (<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/tags/">here</a>). Click the 'delete' link in the right column of any tag.

How do I disable / re-enable the tag-suggestion feature?

There is no such thing, as of 2014.03.25

How do I change the order of a slideshow?

It depends on which slideshow you're running. Flickr has many ways to run a slideshow.

If you're running a <b>tag-based</b> slideshow, I don't know of any way to change the order. Tag-based slideshows appear to pull images in some random order that I can't fathom.

If you're running a <b>set-based slideshow</b>, it's much easier. Sets can be auto-sorted in any way you want, and the slideshow from that set will run in exactly the order that the images appear in the set.

If you're running <b>a slideshow from your photostream</b>, it will play in the order that the images were uploaded to the photostream, newest first. (Edit the "date posted" to change order of images in the photostream).

If you're running <b>a slideshow from a group page</b>, it will play in the order that images were added to the group, recent submissions first. This order can't be changed, without removing images from the group and re-adding them in the order you want.

(Note: There's a "play backwards" option in the slideshow, but that's a <i>viewer-based option</i> — they get to choose that if they want, while viewing it.)

How do I add my images to a group?

There are at least five ways to add images to a group's pool:

1) On the photopage: open the ••• ("three-dot") menu, then "Add to group", click the group's rectangle.

2) On the photopage: type "g", then click the group's rectangle

3) On the group's page: click "Add photos" near the top of the page

4) In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: click the groups tab, then drag images from the bottom Findr bar up onto the appropriate group.

5) Via admin invitation: If someone has invited your image, you can click "ok add it" from your Recent Activity page.

How do I remove my image from a group?

There are at least five ways to remove images from a group's pool:

1) On the photopage: open the ••• ("three-dot") menu, then "Add to / Remove from group", then click the group's blue-lined rectangle.

2) On the photopage: type "g", then click the group's blue-lined rectangle.

3) On the group pool page: click the X that appears when you hover over your image.

4) In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: click the groups tab, click the group's name, then click the X on the thumbnail you want to remove.

5) In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: click the groups tab, click the group's name, select and drag images out of the group area.

How do I add my image to a set?

There are at least seven ways to add images to sets.

1) <b>In your uploading app:</b> Flickr's desktop Uploadr and several third-party uploading apps give you the option to select sets for each image before you click the upload button.

2) <b>During Upload:</b> If you use the web interface for uploading, you can add images to sets, either in batches or individually, by selecting an image (or images) and then clicking 'Add to Set' in the left column.

3) <b>On the photopage:</b> open the ••• ("three-dot") menu, then "Add to / Remove from set", then click the set's rectangle.

4) <b>On the photopage:</b> type "e", then click the set's rectangle.

5) <b>In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>:</b> click the sets tab, double-click the set's name, then drag images up from the lower filmstrip into the set.

6) <b>In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>:</b> click the sets tab, then drag images up from the lower filmstrip onto the set's icon.

7) <b>In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>:</b> drag images into the batch operations area, then click "add to set".

Note: Images are not actually *in* sets; they exist only in your photostream. Sets are just pictorial links back to the photo's own page. Removing an image from a set does not affect the image's existence in your photostream. Also, any image can be in multiple sets simultaneously.

How do I remove my image from a set?

There are at least five ways to remove images from a set:

1) On the photopage: open the ••• ("three-dot") menu, then "Add to / Remove from set", then click the set's blue-lined rectangle.

2) On the photopage: type "e", then click the set's blue-lined rectangle.

3) In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: click the sets tab, double-click the set's name, then CTRL+click on the thumbnail you want to remove.

4) In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>: click the sets tab, double-click the set's name, click and drag images out of the set area.

5) On the set page: in "detail" view, click "remove" underneath the image.

Note: Images are not actually *in* sets; they exist only in your photostream. Sets are just pictorial links back to the photo's own page. Removing an image from a set does not affect the image's existence in your photostream.

How do I create a new set?

There are at least six ways to create new sets:

1) <b>On the photopage:</b> open the ••• ("three-dots") menu, then "add to set". You should see a dialog box listing your existing sets (if any) and an option to create a new set. Click 'create a new set'.

2) <b>On the photopage:</b> click "e" on your keyboard. You should see a dialog box listing your existing sets (if any) and an option to create a new set. Click 'create a new set'.

3) <b>In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>:</b> select images you want to add to sets, and drag them into the batch operations area. Use the 'add to set' menu and select 'new set'.

4) <b>In <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/">Organizr</a>:</b> go to the Sets tab, then click (near upper left) "create a new set". You can then name the set, and drag images up into it from the filmstrip at bottom.

5) <b>Uploading Apps:</b> Some uploading applications allow you to create a new set from the Upload interface.

6) <b>During Upload:</b> In Flickr's new web upload interface, you can select an image (or images), click 'add to set' in the left column, and then 'create new set'.

How do I add an image to my faves?

There are a variety of ways to add images to your faves list:

1) click the fave star in the right column of the photopage
2) click "f" on your keyboard while on the photopage
3) click the fave star while viewing the slideshow
4) click the fave star on an image while viewing someone else's faves list
5) click the fave star under an image while viewing someone else's archives pages
6) click the fave star on an image while viewing your Contacts page
7) click the fave star under an image while viewing a group's pool

How do I remove an image from my faves?

There are several ways to remove images from your faves list:

1) Visit <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/favorites/">your faves page</a> and click the pink star that appears when you hover.
2) Visit the photopage and click the fave star (it's an on/off toggle)
3) Visit the photopage and click 'f' on your keyboard to toggle on/off
4) Run the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/favorites/show/">slideshow of your faves</a> and click the "a fave" button
5) When viewing a group's pool, click the pink star under a photo (it's an on/off toggle)

Can I Hide My Favorites List?

Short Answer: <b>No.</b>

Long Answer:

The images belong to other people. Those people (whoever owns the images) get to decide who sees them.

* If the photo-owner has set his/her image to be public/safe, then anyone can see it.

* If the photo-owner has set his/her image to be public/moderate or public/restricted, then only Flickr members with appropriate Safe Search filters will see them. (Others will see grayed-out boxes.)

* If the photo-owner has set his/her image to be friends/family-only, then only Flickr members with the appropriate contact level can see it.

* If the photo-owner has set his/her image to be private, then only the photo-owner can see it (with the exception of those viewing through group pools or Guest Passes)

Buddy Icon Menu (Send Flickrmail)

Note: As of May 20, 2013, the buddy icon menu on several pages (Photostream, Contacts, Faves, Sets, Collections, Archives, etc.) is now non-functional.

Note: As of March 25, 2014, even less buddy icons function as menus. I'm not sure if there's a place left on the site where you can use the buddy icon menu.

Flickr Identifiers

Flickr uses various Identifiers on the site:

1. Your <b>screen name</b>
-- This is displayed next to your posts in Group Discussions and at the top of your photostream
-- It can be changed at any time <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account/prefs/screenname/?from=personal">here</a>

2. Your <b>'real name'</b>
-- This is displayed on your profile and on photopages (and as of 2014.03.25, with any comments you make)
-- It can be changed at any time <a href="http://www.flickr.com/profile_edit.gne">here</a>
-- Many Flickr users don't fill in this info and are listed as 'no real name given'

3. Your <b>URL</b>
-- You can change this <i>once</i>, <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account">here</a> (next to "your Flickr web address")

4. Your <b>Flickr ID</b> (NSID)
-- This is used initially as part of your URL (until you personalize it)
-- It is also used for some third-party apps to link to your account
-- It can never be changed

5. Your <b>sign in ID</b>
-- This is a Yahoo! ID
-- You should never share this information with anyone
-- I don't know of a way to <i>change</i> it, but you can switch Yahoo! IDs <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account/transfer/>here</a>

Find the NSID (Flickr ID#)

<i>(Copy-and-paste answer to this oft-asked question)</i>

There are several non-obvious ways to find a user's NSID ("Flickr ID"), none of which are mentioned in Flickr's FAQs.

1) Use a third-party tool:
* <a href="http://idgettr.com/">idgettr.com/</a>
* <a href="http://www.xflickr.com/fusr/">xflickr.com/fusr/</a>

2) Right-click on a user's buddy icon, then click "View Image Info" (wording will differ depending on browser). The NSID is part of the buddy icon's URL.
* (#2 does not work on all pages of Flickr.)

3) In the Flickr Help Forum, right-click on a user's buddy icon and click "copy link location" (wording will differ depending on browser). Then paste the URL. The NSID is part of the URL. (In Help Forum threads, users' buddy icons show the original account URLs instead of the personalized URLs.)

4) On a user's Flickr profile page, or on their photostream page, click the ••• ("three-dot") menu and choose "send Flickrmail". The NSID is part of the resulting URL.
* (This only works for other users, not for your own NSID.)

5) Using the buddy icon menu, click 'Send Flickrmail'. The resulting URL includes the user's NSID.
* (This only works for other users, not for your own NSID.)

6) Using the buddy icon menu, click "block". The resulting URL includes in the user's NSID — you don't actually have to complete the block process.
* (This only works for other users, not for your own NSID).

7) For new users, the NSID is part of the photostream URL, at least until they personalize their URL.

8) Click any of the RSS links at the bottom of a photostream or set page. The owner's NSID will be part of the resulting URL.

If someone knows another way, please say so and I'll add it to this list.

(Also, there is an <a href="http://www.flickr.com/groups/flickrideas/discuss/72157628416306147/">ongoing feature request</a> in Flickr Ideas, asking for Flickr to list our NSIDs on our account pages.)

Owner Settings (screenshot)

This entry is now irrelevant, after two full redesigns of the photopage.

How do I find an image by its ID number?

flickr.com/photo.gne?id=xxxxxxxxxx
(Replace the Xs with the numberic ID of the photo, and enter that in your browser's address bar.)

So this:
flickr.com/photo.gne?id=3550527378

Will become this:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/3550527378/

Why Are My Images Not Appearing in Searches (on Flickr)?

<i>(Copy-and-paste answer to this oft-asked question)</i>

There are several possible reasons why your images* aren't found in searches, listed in order of likelihood:

<b>1) Your account hasn't been reviewed yet</b>
You can check <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account>here</a>, next to 'Your Safety Level' to see whether your account has been reviewed. Your account enters the queue for review after you've uploaded your fifth public image. Images aren't searchable until your account passes review.

<b>2) Your images are set to be unsearchable</b>
Do you have any boxes checked on <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account/prefs/optout/?from=privacy">this page</a>?

<b>3) There's nothing to search for.</b>
Search works with <i>text</i>. Do your images have descriptive titles, tags, and descriptions that would help them be found in searches?

<b>4) Your account was reviewed unfavorably.</b>
You can check <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account>here</a>, next to 'Your Safety Level' to see the current review status of your account. If the account was not reviewed favorably, you'll want to check <a href="http://www.flickr.com/guidelines.gne"><b>Flickr's Community Guidelines</b></a> to see how to bring your account back into line before requesting a re-review. Common culprits are uploading images you didn't create, uploading unfiltered adult content, and using your Flickr account commercially.

<b>5) There's a Search bug</b>
There's a persistent and recurring bug that causes new uploads to be not added to search even when they're supposed to be added. If that's the case, staff would have to nudge your account. (Check #1, #2, and #3 before assuming this possibility.)

(* All of this also applies to videos, artwork, screenshots, etc.)

Why Is Someone Blocking Me?

Did you check the FAQs? I found this:

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/contacts/#95"><b>Flickr FAQ: Someone is blocking me. What's up with that?</b></a>

This FAQ says: <i>"Blocking is a simple way to make sure that everyone is comfortable. If you've been blocked by somebody, it is most likely your interaction with them is outside their comfort zone."</i>

How do I post my images on other sites/forums?

Whether your site uses standard html or "bb code," click the "box-with-an-arrow" menu (on the photopage) then select your type of code (pushpin icon for BB code and the weird middle icon for HTML). From there, you can choose your size. Copy-and-paste the code into your other site.

How do I post my images on my blog?

A. Open your blog editor in one browser tab; select the "edit html" option.
B. In another browser tab(s), find the photo(s) you want to use.
C. Get the code:
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 1. Click "box-with-an-arrow" menu
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 2. Choose the code type (html or bb)
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 3. Choose size.
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 4. Copy the code
D. Then paste the code into your blog's editor.
E. Repeat 1-4 for each image you want to use

How do I put images in my comments or discussion threads?

Click the "box-with-an-arrow" menu beside the photo. Select the HTML option. Choose your size and copy the code that appears and paste it into your reply (Works for your images and images of members with sharing enabled)

Where Is The Share Menu

Flickr's Share Menu is now just a wordless icon:
<img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7339/8803472424_d94fbb97d5_o.png">

How do I change my personal URL / Flickr web address?

Users can change their personal URL on <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account">this page</a>

The first and only time that someone changes his/her personal URL, there is a large warning box saying you can only do it once...

It looked something like this:
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/saintseminole/4555674205/"><img src="http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3189/4555674205_4e6569e3e5.jpg" /></a>

How do I keep others from downloading my images?

<b>If someone can see something on the internet, they can save / copy / download it.</b> There is nothing that anyone can do about that.

As for the Flickr specifics; users can turn off access to their original sizes/files <a href="http://www.flickr.com/account/prefs/downloads/">here</a>.

If you'd like, you can mark your images private, or friends/family only, to limit who can see (and therefore download) the images.

Very Large JPEG Files.

NOTE: This information is now outdated. On May 20, 2013, Flickr raised the limits for individual photos.

Explanations of Flickr's Image Containers

Flickr has several types of containers for images, each with a different purpose.

<b>Photostream</b>: All images on Flickr exist only in photostreams. Anywhere else is just a pictorial link back to the photostream. Your photostream is only for images <i>you</i> have created.
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me">Your Photostream</a>
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/#29">FAQ about Photostreams</a>

<b>Sets</b>: Sets are also only for <i>your</i> images. Sets can help you organize your photostream into categories. (In reality, sets only contain pictorial links back to your photostream; however, it will appear the images are "in" the sets.) You can organize your sets <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/?start_tab=sets">here</a>.
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/sets">Your Sets</a>
<:a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/#59">Sets FAQ</a>

<b>Collections</b>: Collections can be used to organize sets and/or other collections. A collection can contain sets *or* collections, but not both in the same collection.
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/collections/">Your Collections</a>
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/faq/search/?q=collections">FAQs about Collections</a>

<b>Galleries</b>: Galleries are for <i>other people's</i> images and cannot contain any of your own images. They are currently limited to 18 images per gallery, but you can create as many galleries as you want. Other users can choose whether their images can be added to galleries.
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/galleries/">Your Galleries</a>
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/faq/search/?q=galleries">FAQs about Galleries</a>

<b>Favorites</b>: Favorites ("faves") are also for <i>other people's</i> images and cannot include any of your own. You can have an unlimited number of faves. You can fave any image you see unless you've been blocked by that image's owner.
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/me/favorites/">Your Favorites</a>
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/favorites/">FAQ about Favorites</a>

<b>Groups</b>: Groups can contain your own images <i>and</i> other people's images. Group administrators can set limits on how many images members can add, can set up a moderation queue for the group, and can issue invitations for images to be added to the group (invites will bypass limits and queues).
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/groups/">Groups to Which You Belong</a>
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/faq/search/?q=groups">FAQs about Groups</a>

<b>Albums</b>: Flickr doesn't have a container called "albums" in the English version of the site, though <a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/#59">one part of the FAQ</a> uses the word "album" to refer to "sets", and other language versions of the site use "albums" to refer to "sets".

Note: This copy/paste advice was developed for the English version of Flickr only. In other languages, the containers are known to have different names.

How Do I Delete My Account?

Here is Flickr's FAQ entry:
<b><a href="http://www.flickr.com/help/account/#48">Flickr FAQ: How Do I Delete My Account?</a></b>

<b>Further Information:</b>

What Will Be Deleted (Permanently):
* All your Flickr images
(they won't appear in groups, sets, galleries, or elsewhere on the web)
* All your profile information
* All your faves and galleries
* Your buddy icon

What Will NOT Be Deleted:
* Any comments/notes you have left on other people's images
* Any comments you've made in group discussions
* Your original Flickr URL as well as your personalized URL (if you had one)
(Anyone visiting those URLs will see this message:
"This member is no longer active on Flickr.")
* Your screen name
(Because it will always be listed next to the comments that are left behind.)
* Groups that you started or currently administer
(If you were the only member of a group, that group will be deleted; if there are other members, the next-oldest member will be auto-promoted to admin.)

How to Get My Images Out There? (Increase viewership)

- use descriptive and accurage tags; some people also tag in different languages
- use titles and descriptions
- check your account settings and individual image settings to make sure they're not hidden from search
- join groups where your images will fit and add your photos to the group pools
- if you're looking for critique and advice, search groups for "critique"
- participate in group discussions
- add as contacts people whose work you like
- leave thoughtful comments on other people's images
- if you have a blog or website, provide links to your Flickr images
- be patient; it takes time to build a network

(Most of my views come from Google searches, but most of my comments and faves come from people who list me as a contact.)

How Do I Correct the Place Name (Location Name) for My Photopage?

Since Flickr removed the "edit location" feature from the photopage (2014.03.25), there is now only one known way to corect the location name.

1) Find the correct WOE number for your location
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;a. go <a href="http://www.flickr.com/places/info/1">here</a> and use the links in the right column to narrow down your location, OR
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;b. go <a href="http://www.flickr.com/places">here</a> and search for the place name.
2) Get the image ID number (it's part of the URL of the photopage)
3) Go <a href="http://www.flickr.com/services/api/explore/?method=flickr.photos.geo.correctLocation">here</a> and enter those two numbers in the correct boxes.
4) Click the "call method" button

This will work for only one image at a time, but the correct place name will be displayed with your image. I have used this successfully for hundreds of my images where Flickr's interface doesn't provide the correct location name.
