Upload & Share
While free accounts have an upload limit of 1,000 items, if you decide to go Pro, your storage space is unlimited.

Pro members also have access to our Auto-Uploadr feature which will work to automatically upload your content from your devices to your Flickr account.

Upload Photos and Videos to Flickr

When uploading, be sure to check your privacy settings. This allows you to decide who can see your photos & can be updated at any time. 
Get Organized
Now that you've uploaded photos, learn how to keep them organized. One of the most efficient ways to organize your photos is through the Organizr.

View and manage your photos with the Organizr

Cultivate a visual journey from moment to moment by arranging your photos into albums. From there, your albums can be further grouped into Collections

Make photos easier to find by tagging them with keywords, people, or even geo locations.
Stay Connected
Share and keep in touch with friends and family, or get to know new photographers. Follow others to get their latest updates, comment on each other's posts, or private messages with FlickrMail.

You can also share your photos on social websites or blogs.
Share Interests
Flickr groups bring people together with similar interests and a keen eye for the amazing. Share, view, and comment on topic-specific photos or discuss any topic that fits your fancy! Here’s how to get started with Flickr Groups.
