Flickr as a replacement for MobileMe Gallery

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Another tip I meant to mention in the last post regarding the transition from MobileMe to iCloud, was about Flickr.  Flickr is a really good way to share photos, create galleries of images and even set up an online portfolio (we have several users who are graphic designers that do this).  Flickr’s integration with iPhoto, Facebook and other sites makes it very easy to use.  For example, when you post a new image to Flickr, you also choose to have it automatically post to your Facebook wall, Twitter feed, etc.

Flickr also generates easy to find links for sets or collections of images (so you can email direct links to the work you want to show).  Flickr is a Yahoo! service, but you don’t have to have a Yahoo account to join or sign in.  You can also access Flickr with your Google or Facebook account credentials.

You can also check out your Flickr photos on your Apple TV.

Best of all, with a Flickr Pro account you get UNLIMITED photo uploads (20MB per photo) and unlimited storage for only $24.95 a year.
