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 ...

If you create a new photoset in Lightroom, it will be named Photoset by default. Publishing like this, it will create a new album on Flickr. Creating a new photoset and renaming it to the same name an existing album has on Flickr, LR will realize the album is already there on Flickr and publish to that album. It will not realize that there are already ...

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, ...

As from discussion with Per Olso Norway this can happen because of few reasons Setting in the export in LR (see image below) Software, used to upload image strip EXIF information. Original Flickr Uploadr do not do it Some other software in the workflow (xnview for example: Tools->Metadata->Clear)

No. Photostream is a view of all photographs in the account. Flickr offers Albums, Galleries, and Collections, where you can arrange groups of photographs together as you'd like, but the photostream (and once it comes out of beta, the Camera Roll) will, according to Flickr staff comments, always be the full view of any photographs set to be publicly ...

Is there some service that will allow us to upload all these photos and put them into a combined album? Does Flickr have shared albums? Flickr does not have shared albums, but instead has a feature called groups. If each of you get an individual Flickr account, one of you can create a group (public, invitation only public, or private, up to you), and invite ...

Yes, there is a list, maintained by flickr, in their Services section, using the tag "print". Or search the apps with "print". Photoworks SF Imagekind moo.com Tiny Prints QOOP ...etc...

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.

I downloaded and installed Windows versions of Flickrdownloadr (version 2.5.1.7) and ExifTool (version 11.08). I uploaded an image (with no specific exif data) to flickr and added it to an album. I changed the title and description to known values (in Flickr). It appears Flickr does not add these values to the image file exif data - it adds it to its own ...

The mystery is simply that the low-resolution versions of photos on Flickr are downscaled and recompressed with whatever arbitrary settings Flickr chooses. If you download the original version, it's byte-for-byte identical to the one you provide via Google Drive — if that looks different, it's a problem with your viewing software. How can you avoid this? ...

After reading the suggestions, I was able to work through some options and I found my problem: I was emailing the link to the album (the thing like http://www.flickr.com/photos/user name/sets/number/) rather than the guest pass link (something like http://www.flickr.com/gp/user name/some characters/). In any event, the corrected process for me is: 1) I have ...

Ok. I am not sure what you are asking, but I can try to guess. If a photo is already uploaded, it is rather difficult to modify, as that copy is no longer on your computer. I suggest downloading the photo, applying the watermark in photoshop/gimp (A free, open source version of photoshop), and re-uploading. I am not sure if this will preserve the metadata ...

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 ...

Flickr has its own tool to export all your account data. This article on Macworld explains the steps you need to take. I've quoted them below: 1.Log into Flickr via the web. (The Yahoo login account requirement is going away soon, too.) 2.Click the account avatar in the upper-right corner, and select Settings. 3.In the bottom panel, “Your Flickr Data,”...

Here are some of the services I could find that can print from Flickr: Photobox: Top UK printing service uploads from flickr AdoramaPix: Supports importing from flickr Zoomin.com: Photo prints page describes import from Flickr Zoomin.com took digging through to the 4th page of search results on Bing. There are a LOT of irrelevant results when trying to ...

When you configure the Flickr publish service (either Jeffrey's or the built-in one), you create one or more "publish collections" that correspond to your Flickr photostream or sets on Flickr. When you add a photo to a publish collection, it appears there under a "New photos to be published" heading. After you upload it to Flickr using the "Publish" button, ...

To quote from the (trivially findable!) Flickr Help: "It's not currently possible to merge two or more Flickr accounts under one login ID. As a workaround, you can download your photos from one account and upload them into another. [...] Last updated: April 07, 2014" Probably not want you want to hear, but pretty definitive.

How many other similar services can you name? they're really few. So, no, I don't think that flickr is dying, considering that they're relatively unique in this business. truth is there are not many online services like flickr. If you don't want to pay for it, flickr is still the best available service IMO, it lets your visitors to interact with you and ...

I will provide all who visit this page with a working answer, having in mind that this is now 2015: Of course you can have you images uploaded to a Google+ album and still have you originals on your computer. Supposing you have uploaded the images with Picasa 3 and you still have the connection in Picasa with both the local and online album. What you need ...

You are correct about the new photos section on 500px. I was very surprised when I posted my first photos on 500px and immediately started getting likes. Flickr has nothing like that. To get more views in Flickr you can post your photos into various groups. Some are better than others. You just have to search for ones that seem to have regular activity. ...

This is perfectly feasible with Flickr. What you need to do: Ensure all your photos are uploaded with a viewing privacy of "private"1. I suspect you've uploaded all your photos public. Put the photos you want to share in an album. From the album page, select "Share album" - you'll then get a link with "gp" in it. Send this link, not the regular album page ...

I'm going to agree with mattdm here. Facebook in particular is notorious for its brutal image compression. If you want it to look nicer on Facebook, or Flickr, you need to have lightroom scale down the image to whatever setting Facebook is trying to get it to. My suggestion is to use one of the export plugins, and then play with the settings to find one that ...

Have you tried folders2flickr. It's a python script that has served me very well. As an added bonus, you can automatically add a label to the picture based on the foldername it is in.

I've poked into this a bit in the past, and you won't like the answer much. Publish services, because they interact with so many parts of Lightroom and with code blocks installed as plug-ins, are complicated beasts. Adobe's chosen to store their configuration information in the preferences file, not in a preset file. The preferences file for Lightroom 5 (...

I am a daily user of user in Flickr using my Lightroom 5.5 to upload to photostream in Flickr. When you are in Library mode with the grid view of your photostream it shows you any files you have modified that were previously published in your Flickr photostream. If you click the publish button lightroom asks you if you would like to replace the existing ...

The same exact thing happened to me (I had a 90s folder too!). In order to get it to work, I had to import the photos to iPhoto, then export them to the desktop, then re-import them into iPhoto. And THEN they worked. Once you upload them to Flickr, if you change the date in iPhoto, the date won't sync, though it syncs up tags in Flickr. However, it's very ...

If I read the iPhoto instructions correctly, you can select all photos, choose Export from the Archive menu, and make sure to tick the checkboxes for inclusion of metadata.

You can try photos.163.com if you can read Chinese, or with aid from Google Translate.
