Using Flickr to upload photos

If you have taken photos during a Clarion ride and wish to share them with your fellows, here’s what to do.

Option 1
1 Join Flickr https://www.flickr.com/. If you already have a Yahoo account you can use that to log on.
2 Join the Clarion group https://www.flickr.com/groups/532678@N24/pool/
3 Click the button top right, that looks like a cloud with an upward arrow, next to the bell. This will take you to https://www.flickr.com/photos/upload/#
4 Here you’ll be prompted to either drag and drop your photos or search them out. Once they are in the browser window, you can Select All and add them to the Clarion Group and any of your own Albums. You can also add titles, captions and tags (to aid searching), either individually or by selecting all. You can change them later if you wish.
5 When you are ready, click the Upload button top right and Bob’s your uncle. We’ll do the rest, selecting a few for the website.

Click ‘New Here?’ (Top right on https://www.flickr.com/photos/upload/# ) for a step-by-step tutorial.

Option 2
If you don’t want to join Flickr, you can use the Clarion account bh.clarion@yahoo.com to log in (email me or Jim for the password). Then follow steps 3-5 above. Please remember to add your name in the caption so we can see who is uploading.

If you have a smartphone, you can upload straight from there. Download the free Flickr app, click the camera icon and follow steps 3-5 above.

If you really can’t do any of this, email your photos to me or Jim and we’ll upload them for you.

Why Flickr?
All the photos are in a place that is searchable. Flickr gives everyone 1 terabyte of memory and pictures are viewable by anyone in the world. Photos posted on Facebook, however , are difficult to locate even a few days after posting, and you have to be a member of Facebook to see them. Images can also be uploaded to WordPress, where our blog is hosted, but they are only accessible by the web team.
