In the first of our series about online exposure for visual artists, we will be looking at a service called Flickr. We will be looking at how to set up an account, and the various benefits of using this service.
What is Flickr?
Flickr is an image and video hosting website that’s main use is to neatly store and organize photos online. As well as being able to upload your images onto Flickr, you are able to browse other people’s images, and make and receive comments on your images. This makes Flickr not only a service you can use to display your images online, but almost a mini social network where you can communicate with other creative-types from all over the world.
The other great thing about Flickr is that there are various tools and widgets that you can use for doing neat things like displaying your flickr images on your blog, although, if that sounds a bit daunting to you, don’t worry, stay tuned to our RSS feed to keep up to date with all of our articles, where things like this will be explained!
Ok, so, lets get to the point, i’m going to walk you through how to set up a Flickr account.
