I’m feeling pretty much like a dork for not showing ya’ll how to upload to Flickr. I’ll be honest tho, until this weekend, I had absolutely no idea myself on how to do it. You’d think with EQ Seasons last year that I would have known, but I must have just lucked out with the blocks I did upload. So without further ado, here is a quick how to do it.
First, you must have a yahoo id and login. You can’t login to Flickr without one.
Once you are logged in, it will take you to your “feed” wall, which is usually people who are following. If your not following anyone else, it will show you miscellaneous feeds until you start following some people. It will also show you your activity.
This is the first, from your own profile.
You can only upload (to my knowledge) photos from your profile, even tho you can choose to add photos from groups, the only time the option seems to appear like this in a group is if your not logged in, and it will ask you to login prior to uploading, and probably take you to your profile anyway.
Once they are uploaded
On the left side menu, near the bottom is a Add To Groups line in the menu.
If you have joined the group, it will show up on this list. (if you haven’t (click the done button without clicking a group) but don’t click out of this page yet, scroll 2 images down to see what’s left to do)
Once your all done editing, and adding them to a group, click the “Upload # Photos” (I used # because it’s dependant on how many image(s) you are uploading) button in the top right area of your browser.
If you don’t click this button, your images will not upload, and they will just disappear into the void.. 🙂 You’ll have to do the process all over again.
If you couldn’t upload to the group you wanted, read the how to below:
How to Directly Add To a Group
You need to be logged into Flickr.
Go to the group you want to upload to, in this case, this tutorial was created for uploading to the Sunbonnet Sue and Sam Travel The World botm, so I’ll give you that link to try, but this tutorial is good for any group on Flickr.
You’ll need to join the group if you haven’t already.
Click on the Add Photo button.
If you have a lot of images in your Flickr profile, the ones you just uploaded will show up first in the window.
You can then click on the picture(s) you want to add to the group, and they will appear in the right side window:
Cool Eh!! It’s also very quick.
Now, if you uploaded from your own profile, your return window will be different, but when you go to the group url, the images will show their also, as well in your own group
When your ready to turn in a block for a Flickr Reward, this is how you get the url address of your photo.
Go to the page where your photo you’ve uploaded is displayed
Click in your browser address bar so it is hilighted
Press ctrl + c on your keyboard or right click and choose copy
Come to the page at my blog where you need to enter the Url Address and right click and choose paste, or press ctrl +v on your keyboard.
If your FlickR url address doesn’t look something like the above image, I will reject it and you will have to send me the correct url, so please be sure you get this right. It’s not fun for me to have to search for your image when I have many requests to reward.
Please let me know if you have any issues, I do want to make this process easy for you.
