flickr logoYou can start uploading your photos (like jpeg, jpg, gif, png etc.) on Flickr easily via the web or use uploading tools for Mac and Windows to make it easy to upload a batch of hi res photos all at once. You can send your photos into Flickr with a special upload by email address. When you upload photos by email, use the subject line to give your photo a title, and the body of the email to give it a description. If you use a recent Nokia mobile phone, you can post your photos to Flickr via Lifeblog after getting your password.

If your are a Flickr newbie, read How to get the most out of Flickr. Did you know the most popular camera on Flickr was the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. You can now choose to license the photos you upload to Flickr under a Creative Commons license.

Developers interested in adding to this toolset might want to visit the FlickrIdeas forum or investigate the public Flickr API. The Flickr API is now available for non-commercial use by outside developers. Flickr forums are available to every Flickr member as a place to ask questions, suggest features or report a bug.

    Hi! Great posting here! In my stats I see that quite a few people really use your article and I think that something like this is good to give people an impression of how powerful flickr in fact is. Your article is great and I hope, my contribution (“Basic Guidelines for Tagging”) will make it even better ;-)


  2. tom says:

    don’t forget FlickFolio… a somewhat-complete script to create an offsite gallery / portfolio via the Flickr API.

  3. Bryan says:

    You should update your post to reflect the new price changes and additions. Nice comprehensive post!

  4. Anonymous says:

    Anyone know of a good way to export Adobe Photoshop tags into Flickr directly, without have to retag everything?

  5. Jake says:

    Don’t forget It allows you to geo-tag your photos and see them marked on a map. It can easily import all your Flickr photos and you dont even need a GPS to do the tagging. Just enter an address or click on a map.

  6. Charles says:


    I just launched a new tool, Delivr:

    Love to know what folks think.

    Hi. Great post.

    For those of you that blog & are Flickr members —There is a ring devoted to just that.

    As of today there are 95 members of Blogs That Flickr. I joined and it’s been great.

    You place a small code snippet on your site & visitors can surf other sites within the ring.

    You can check out the Blogs That Flickr homepage for more info. The owner has also posted a great list of flickr related links. Cheers!

  8. Allen Smith says:

    You can upload pictures directly from Motorola i860 to flickr with the location of the photo stamped in tags as well as a link to a map in the comments. here is one of my pictures:

    The phone adds tags of the city, state, and zip code of where the picture was taken as well as adding a link to a MapQuest map of the location. To enter your flickr email press # *your pin* 8 7 5 0 # from the first start-up screen. So if your pin is 1234 you would press the keys # 1 2 3 4 8 7 5 0 # and a screen will pop-up that lets you enter your flickr email and password

  9. Alx says:


    There’s a Flickr WordPress plugin on to mashup Flickr photos with reBlog.

    This site contains streetArt, retro and typo reblogging.



  10. J. J. says: has a frequently updated list of Greasemonkey scripts. It might be good to add that to your official list above. There are currently 20 scripts listed for Flickr.

  11. Al Simonds says:

    I want to create a slide show with Flickr…but be able to show captions for each photo. I know Flickr’s slide show mode does not support captions. So I’m wondering if there is any work-around. How do you “tell a story” with a group of Flickr photos? Thanks!

  12. Anonymous says:

    loads of useful flickr related scripts

  13. lets you view which of your photos do not belong to any sets sorts the photos in a set by date taken, a feature sorely lacking from Organizr lets you browse a big-screen slideshow of a set

  14. Dug says:

    Keep an eye out for a sharing tool from Cognima which allows users of certain cameraphones to have there pictures tagged and shared to Flickr with no intervention.

    I’m using a beta and it’s amazing. You take a picture somewhere with no network coverage (like on the tube), put your phone back in your pocket and finish commuting to work.

    Log on on to your desktop at work, check your Flickr home and the picture you took is there already.

    All the best

  17. Jeremy says:

    This is a great list; I’m glad to see someone has compiled all of these resources together. I found this page looking for a Flickr rating system and was disappointed to find that the one on here didn’t seem to work (I registered, but never received by password nor any responses from the support alias). I would love to see a rating system built into Flickr and until then would like to see a third party tool built to assist in this.

    To this end, I built my own using the .NET API. This was originally intended for my own personal use but then I opened it up to my friends and it’s been relatively popular. It’s definitely in beta but seems to function better than any other rating tools out there so I’m submitting it for inclusion here.

    Feedback welcome, of course. Hopefully Flickr builds this in sooner than later.

  18. Ben Shepherd says:

    Flickr AutoDownloadr is a free tool to view Flickr photos from one user in a fullscreen slideshow (Windows). Handy for showing off photos to a group of friends with a laptop and TV. It can also display random Interesting pictures from Flickr.

  19. Nice Collection.
    Worth visiting.

    Congratulations for such an excellent effort.

  20. Anne says:

    A new simple desktop wallpaper changer is available: FlickrWallpaper based on .Net 1.1 (no FlickrNet API required).

    This handy tool just downloads a random interesting photo based on a set of tags you provide.

    I’m happy to announce the launch of is a web service that allows you to put a flash based world map on your own website or blog. Flickrmap will then automatically search your photos at Flickr for location information and plot the photos on your own Flickrmap, on your own website.

    It’s as simple as tagging your photos with a city and country name!

    Flickrmap also supports photos that have been geotagged or photos that have location data encoded in their EXIF properties. There’s currently 94389 geotagged photos at Flickr.

    Check out the website and let me know what you think. Please suggest any ideas you might have for new features.

  26. Chris says:

    Well after a few weeks of hard work and learning PHP I am ready to release a full working version of the FlickrSavr for Mac OS X.

  34. Markus says:

    Great list!

    I have just checked some of he tools and right now Flickr Importr is very useful for me. Flickr Importr handles the title, description and the tagging in a wonderful way. It uses some of the IPTC tags (well known as Photoshop file information).

    I have posted a little review on my blog: Review of Flickr Importr by Markus Merz … I am sure the review will be updated in the near future.

    If you plan to use Flickr Importr you should also have a look at PixVue … that is a great free image management software which integrates into Wndows explorer … best of all it comes with an awesome free IPTC editor … the link is in my review.


  35. SePP says:


    We just released our first stable version of our external flickr image viewer in flash. What a word ! :)

    It’s open-source so everyone can customize it to its needs. Users who don’t know flash can customize it trough a config xml file. Very easy.

    It would be cool if you could add us to the list.. –> website download –> development blog

    Help for adding content to our support wiki or development of the flapi viewer is always welcome.

    Hello there,

    I just wanted to let you know about a Flickr application a friend and I wrote. It is called Groupr. It allows you to view the five most recent photos from all of a user’s groups. We would appreciate a link from your site.

    Thanks much!

  50. Bill Adams says:

    Hi there…

    Under the Official Flickr Tools area, the “Send To Flickr” Bookmarklet no longer exists, and hasn’t for many months.

    Just an FYI…

    Great site, by the way!

  51. Richard says:

    Hi. Would you please consider adding Flickr TagMan to your comprehensive Flickr list? It’s a hangman game for Flickr tags. When you guess a tag, you’ll see some photos from the tag as the “reward” for winning a game.

  52. Eric says:

    I have created a site called Groupr (it’s different than the Groupr listed above and I have contacted Jeremy about this). The purpose of the site is to provide a quick interface for adding photos to many groups at a time. The interface also allows people to quickly see the text of the group information pages so they will know the rules for posting in the groups.

  53. Joe Lencioni says:

    Good list. I recently finished a greasemonkey/creammonkey script that adds lightbox functionality to websites that link to images. While it is not specifically for Flickr, it does work quite nicely on the site. I call it Greased Lightbox. If you think it fits in this list, I would be happy for you to add it.

  54. Hi,

    Just wanted to let you know about matchr, the flickr puzzle game. given 8 flickr tags and 16 randomly selected pictures, users have to find each set of two pictures that have a tag in common.

    Hi! Great list. Might I suggest adding Slideroll, which just recently added Flickr integration. thanks!

  56. Christian says:

    Hi, could I humbly suggest a link to my new flickr app, called h4ppier photos? It helps people find photos that are not already in sets and/or filter by date. Once they find a group of photos they can then add them to a new or existing set or tag them.

    I’ve made a new site that finds the coolest photos on flickr using the power of the collective conciousness. It’s much simpler than meticulously rating them, you are presented with two photos, and you click the one that’s better. From the results of a bunch of people all doing that, we can figure out which photos are the best of the day. It’s still pretty beta at this stage, there are a bunch of features I’d like to add. But go check it out, I’d love to hear what people think. I find it totally addictive.

    Want to use Flickr photos of letters, numbers and punctuation to generate a FlicrkFont? Need to create zany fun headings? Feel like annoying your readers with pointless eye candy? Got just a few minutes to knock together a ransom note?

    Check out:


    This gaudy hack uses Flickr’s JSON feed to create a dynamic font based on pooled images. If you’re game, you can turn any HTML elements into a refreshing and unique pictorial representation of text using CSS. Eg

    <p class="FlickrFont">This text will get flickrised</p>

    I’d like to recommend the new Bubbles Flickr Uploader, really cool, you open up flickr and simply drag-n-drop your photos into it.

    I currently use Gallery to host my photos. In an effort to keep it sync’d with flickr, I’m looking for a script that will take the RSS feed from the Gallery (which there is a hack for so it is formatted like a flickr RSS feed) and on a daily basis email new photos to the flickr upload address.

  84. susan says:

    I looked for a flickr tip, but maybe I’m searching the wrong words… I have a few photos though not ‘interesting worthy’, but yet they are steadly climbing up in hits. Is there a flickr gadget that I can use to see if my photos are linked somewhere else on the web??

  87. While you already mention one Flickr favorites downloader on this page, I’d still like to add a link to my own: FlickrFaves For one, it is a cross-platform Java tool (the other is Windows-only). Secondly, it also allows you to download those of you favorites that you only have access to when you are logged in (the program gets read permission for your photos). Try it out, it’s easy, useful and free!

    A user can create (“frame”) an ecard using our (free) web tool using photos from her own computer, from a remote site using a web address or from her Flickr account and then send it via email as an ecard or save it to her Flickr account :-).

    Since i’ve spent around two weeks trying to make this thing work, i would like to hear any comments you may have :-P.

  107. iTagger says:

    Don’t forget iTag.

    iTag is all about adding captions and keywords to your photos *before* you upload your photos.

    So all your original jpegs on your local hard drive have the same keywords as the uploaded copies.

    (Flickr recogises the data in the IPTC section of the JPEG file and automatically adds the data during upload – so you only tag once)


  108. //Rutger says:

    I just released UploadrXL.

    It’s a full featured upload application that uploads your photos, adds them to your sets and/or groups. It adds tags and a description based upon the EXIF/IPTC tags or your own values.

    Check it out….. :)

  116. Michael says:


    It occurred to me that older photos very rarely get seen as no one ever really browses past the first page or two of a photo stream. So, I wrote a little application which randomly selects photos from a group of your choice. It’s available on the web here:

    Hopefully some people will find it useful!


  117. Hi QOT – Would you add the Flickr Notifier to your list?

    It pops up a thumbnail of new images, from any Flickr feed, in the lower-right corner of your desktop. (For Windows.)

  118. Jason says:

    I have noticed on flickr that some have larger thumbnail pictures on their pages. As most pictures look better larger, I was wondering how you do it?



  119. I would like to be able to know how many times my Flickr photo display was viewed – Individual photo tracking is fine, but what about the tracking those peple who view the entire collection and maybe open only a few or comment on only one. I’d like to know there was that type of activity. is there a tool for that?

    This is a nice page. I’ve been wondering how long Flickr has been around. I’m usually behind on the technology; one of my professors in grad school used to talk about the risk- and technology-averse people. I’ve considered myself to be one of them, but now that I know it’s a challenge I go for it. Today I’m giving a workshop on photo-sharing applications, and this page might prove useful, although it might have been more useful to have found it earlier. Great information and wonderful links to the many, many tools available.

  191. Brett Jones says:

    Here’s a site I built to “Map A Set” from flickr and embed in your website or blog:

    It will allow you to put a map on your website based on a set. I use it for trips, I create a new blog post with an iframe in it of mapaset and then as I upload pictures to the set on flickr, everyone can see where I’ve been for the day.

  192. aberrant80 says:

    It would be even better if that list is divided into “Official”, “Windows-only”, “Linux-only”, “Multi-platform”, and “Web-based”. At present, there are very few Linux tools for Flickr; making it rather tedious to have to read through the entire list only to find that there’s no tool listed here that supports Linux and does what I want…

    I have written a tool that generates images of a user-defined size using randomly selected flickr photos. I have called it frigtool – flickr random image generating tool – and it can be found at

    Hope it proves useful for those looking for random images to fill space somewhere!

    Flickr Tools – Flickr is good, but we want more. We want to convert images to flash galleries, make puzzles from our photos, search for Creative Commons content and see what we can use, we want to integrate, optimize and pimp our Flickr profile, and the huge collection of tools offered here should keep you busy for a few days days.

    Flickr Explorer with EXIF data

    Flickr Explore is an amazing source for finding good photographs. Unfortunately Flickr does not provide a direct way to view the EXIF information of the photos in Explore. This information is very useful for photographers to fully understand the techniques used in capturing the image. This application will capture the EXIF information of the Explored photos for any day.

  221. Thanks for posting this. Still helpful in 2009!

  222. arun says:

    Hi, I want to inproduce my application “Flickr Explorer with EXIF” that lets you view Flickr Explored photos for any day you choose (or go random) with the photo EXIF data.


    You can also search by Tags, Photo description or by flickr user id to view the person’s most interesting photos again with EXIF.

    This is intended as a learnign tool for photographers who can understand photographs better by looking the technical information contained in EXIF.
