I'd suggest contacting the photographer to see what their "specified manner" might be, as a matter of courtesy. But the actual legal requirements are (by design) quite reasonable for reuse. If you read the actual license terms in their full, legal-language form, the key relevant point appears to be: Such credit may be implemented in any reasonable manner; ...

I did some investigation on my own, using my own flickr account and a non-logged in browser. Here's the All Sizes page for one of my photos. Prior to me changing the "Who can access your original image files?" setting in Privacy & Permissions, a generic Internet user could see the "Original" link in addition to the other sizes. That page had an ...

If you upload a JPEG, Flickr does not modify the Original-size image in any way, apart from changing the filename. I tested it out by uploading a full-size, 100% quality JPEG to Flickr then re-downloading the Original size image and comparing it with the original (using a comparison tool called Beyond Compare). The two files are identical, byte for byte. ...

For a photobook, I'd consider the best solution would be to add a credits section on the last page, or on the book flap. Morally, that respects the spirit of the licence, and since it's a private use, I wouldn't be too concerned about the legal side of things. Something along the lines of "Thanks to So and So, who provided the original photograph on which ...

Your images are too large, which is not exclusively related to being RAW, JPEGs can be too large as well. The solution is to send a down-scaled version to Flikr. Here's how: Right-click on the Flickr 'bar' under Publishing service. From the menu that appears, select 'Edit Settings', that is the first option. The 'Lightroom Publishing Manager' will appear. ...

Jeffrey's Lightroom Exporter seems to be the most popular... http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies

Flickr does allow a collection to contain either sets, or other collections, giving you that hierarchy

Several things: The exif "Color Element" tag is not directly related to ICC profile. Your image can have an Adobe RGB profile, yet still say "sRGB." Applications should use the attached profile, not the exif tag, when determining how to render colors. Ideally the EXIF color element tag should match the attached color profile, but there is nothing that will ...

Smugmug has an optional feature called SmugVault (see also here) which allows storage of RAW and other file types. I have not used SmugVault so I can't review it for you, but I am a longtime customer and I love their other services. The files are stored on Amazon S3 servers. As I understand it your RAW files are linked to your jpg files of the same name. ...

Well, Getty isn't really microstock, they're probably the king of stock photography in general. The only thing I would be reluctant about with Getty is some recent behavior around their treatment of longtime artistic photographers under contract. So, I think Getty is counting on good amateur photographers being excited about possibly getting published, ...

I use LR3's Publish To Flickr as well. My RAW files are 21MP, therefore to avoid the problem you mention I make sure the files are down-scaled to at most 2048 pixels vertically (my preference). Note that I first export my RAW files to JPEG, then publish my JPEG files. The reason I do this is because I want to keep a copy of my JPEG files on disk to share ...

I think the point is to have the copyright and CC-licence note in such place so that a viewer a) wouldn't mistake the image as yours, and b) would find the author if they look for it. So just ask yourself: a) Are there places that might make someone think you've authored the images? b) Where would someone go look to see who created the work? Put the ...

SmugMug allows for what is essentially three levels: Categories --Subcategories ----Galleries You can completely customize the names of Categories, Subcategories, and Galleries.

I suspect most photographers will be twitching uncomfortably at your request for "free" photos: everyone seems to want to use other people's work for free these days. :-\ However, without trying to second-guess your motives it's a valid enough question. Most high-quality photos you find online will be under copyright, meaning you can't re-use them for any ...

I only shoot raw and I use LR3's Publish To Flickr service to export images as jpeg to Flickr with no problems, and with no requirement to do anything special just because they're raw. The publishing service takes care of resizing the output jpegs for me automatically. When you say "falls short", what exactly is the problem you're experiencing?

The Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial License (version 2.5) states quite clearly: Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work). So to comply to the letter of the license you must contact the author (if they have not ...

If you want to really avoid issues, be they moral or legal; your best bet is to seek advice from the rights holder (i.e. the person who took the photograph) - They may be willing to licence it to you with different terms, or advise what options they'd see as acceptable for the attribution (If it were me, and I'd released a photo under those terms, I'd accept ...

You do need to give attribution any time you create a copy of it (even if you have modified it yourself). What if you write an attribution on the back (and give attribution verbally)? That way, if your friend forgets where you said you found it, he/she can look on the back of the photo to find out. As others have suggested, your best bet is to contact the ...

I'm pretty sure that Jeffrey Friedl's updated flickr plug-in for lightroom 3 does most (or all) of what you want, but I haven't really experimented with it yet. It's something I want, also, but there's enough complexity here I'm taking my time... http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/flickr/publish

http://www.flickr.com/services/apps/72157622874451890/ I can't vouch for it personally, it's just the best-seeming result for a search for "download" on the Flickr App Garden. It seems to hit all the right points: adds tags to EXIF folders for sets respects privacy settings (which you didn't ask for, but is worth mentioning) This seems like enough to ...

From the flickr FAQ: "We resize your photos to more web-friendly dimensions. Each image has a 75x75 pixel thumbnail and 100-, 240-, 500-, 640- and 1024-pixel versions (that's the length of the longest side), as well as your original file. ... If you have a free account, no one (including you) can access your original file. ..." ...

Permissions are tied to a photo. Unless I'm misunderstanding things, you should be able to accomplish what you want simply by marking the four photos you want other people to be able to see as public. For example, this set of mine actually has 17 photos in it - but you can see only 5 of them; the other 12 are private.

The problem appears to be that you are just copying the link to your album, which won't work if everything is marked private. You have to send the email from the 'Share' icon located in the upper right when you are on your album home page - with this facility, you can either get Flickr to send the e-mail or just get the Guest Pass link yourself and copy and ...

I usually just export to a file, then upload the files to Flickr. I'm not using any of the tagging or library features of Lightroom though; I'm just using it to post-process so your mileage may vary.

As Alan pointed out, this is most likely a color management issue. Definitely try to download the image from Flickr, re-import it in LR3 and I'm pretty confident it will look just fine. There is catch though. I went back & forth for a while reporting this issue in the Firefox bug tracker last year (issue 497363 and 509710) but unfortunately it isn't as ...

Unfortunately, I don't think you can. The association between the Flickr Publish service in LR3 and the Flickr photo itself is maintained in Lightroom's Catalog. It doesn't seem to be exposed in the interface. You would need to hack in the LR3's SQLite database to change this bit of info, or create a plugin. But wait. One way to associate your Flickr photos ...

This page (linked to from the Firefox plugin that bill weaver posted) does a good job of summarising the situation, including the "random component" in the image URL that I mentioned in the question. The author notes: This means that even if you go to the trouble of getting the file name for one of the smaller sizes, you cannot guess the file name of ...

Flickr uses non-secure web protocol (HTTP) by default, so any images can be accessed after performing session hijacking from a person who can access them. For session hijacking, the attacker needs to be able to eavesdrop on victim's network traffic, e.g. by accessing same wireless access point or some intermediate network node. The risk has become quite ...

You can write bilingual captions in the exif data, but the text in both languages should be written in the same caption field. If you want to have two exif fields with one caption each you could use another exif field for that purpose since you can not just add a "caption2" field to the exif data out of nowhere. Same thing for flickr: You can add text in ...
