Flickr Photos a Social Network

How to use Flickr

There’s a lot of good reasons to use an online photo service. Online photo services make it easy to save and organize your photos for later. Have you ever tried to find a picture from your last trip and had no idea where it could be? Ever had your hard drive crash and were not able to recover anything on it? I have, and it’s not fun.

Sharing your Photos
Sharing your photos online is a lot easier and faster than emailing your photos to all your friends and family. And your friends and family can also keep up with your new pics.

Networking your photos
This maybe a little extreme: I just came back from Barbados and saw about 20 properties, and yes I have plenty more to go. Some unique features: These pictures are sized to fit on any area of a web site, each picture has a description, and are copy righted as creative commons so they can not be resold, anyone can use them, and there must be a reference that I am the photographer.

I liked Club Med so much I set up a Club Med Group on Flickr where others could share their vacation photos as well. What a great way to see other Club Med locations than through the eyes or photos of others that have been there. And if there are more questions there is a place to start a discussion or ask questions.
