Flickr is a photo-sharing website where only registered users can post and tag photographs, explore other people’s photos, and leave comments and annotations after completing the new Flickr Account Registration process. Users can manage material by creating photo sets and collections, as well as participating in thematic groups to foster a sense of community. Flickr is a prime example of what is now known as Web 2.0 technology.
The site supplies the tools, but the value comes from the user community’s contributions—photos, comments, ratings, and organization—as well as the interactions that the site creates between people. Flickr also has a number of privacy settings that give users a lot of control over how their photographs are used.
How To Create A Flickr Account
Flickr offers both free and paid accounts, with limitations on bandwidth and the number of groups in which each photo can be added. Registered users can submit images to the site, give tags, specify whether each photo is public or private, and pick additional settings, such as copyright, which can be standard “all rights reserved,” using one of several tools or an online form.
A Flickr account is similar to a Google account. What I mean is that if you already have a Yahoo account, you must sign up for free Flickr using your Yahoo user ID. However, for individuals who do not have any or wish to alter their user details, the procedure is as follows:
- Visit Flickr Sign up website
- Click “Sign Up”
- Fill in the box with your correct details
- Submit the form
Now your Flickr account has been created. You can now start working on it by creating sets of photos and videos, etc.
When you’ve opened the page using the above link, click sign in. Then enter your user ID information.
Note that you can sign in or create a Flickr account using your Yahoo ID.
