Download pix from flickr

So, first – you need a “flickr” account. Which you have. Check

Second, I need to add you as a “friend” in “flickr”. Done, Check.

Now to download:

  1. Find / select the pix you want to download
  2. Right below the pix, to the right, there are a set of 4 icons
    1. Star – “Fave this Photo”
    2. Right Arrow – “Share Photo”
    3. Arrow pointing down – “Download this Photo” – this is the one you want to click
    4. Expand –
  3. Once you click on the “Download this Photo” icon, you will see a few size options and “View all sizes” as the last option
  4. Select “View all sizes”
  5. The second option will be to “Download”. But before you choose to download, be sure that you select the proper size / resolution you want. I would choose the highest, but you can choose any you want.
  6. Once you have the right resolution selected, click on the link next to “Download” and it will be downloaded and saved in your “Download” folder (on your computer)
  7. The file name is usually a long string, which is not really relevant but something you may want to change once download is complete.

BTW, these are steps for downloading on your desktop / laptop using a browser. Not sure how to do this on your phone or tablet 😦 Hope this helps. If you have any trouble, make sure that you are log’d into flickr. If you see that you are log’d in and still unable to download – let me know.

flickr Accounts

For some time now I have been using a couple of accounts / profiles on flickr but have finally made them more separated. My main account will remain to be “smriti” but the following will be more dedicated to he different activities my photography has natuarally developed into.

  • Austin Restaurants – just those – all pix taken of or at Austin Restaurants
  • moohoorta – my daily instgram, tumblr, tweet, pinterest etc posts
  • smritigraphy – this will continue to be my “photography” site – if I ever get back into it

I hope you will follow these and continue to give your comments and feedback.

Spiced Lamb M&Ms on my Keyboard

Unable to Update Tags

flickr has been going thru some evolutions lately. I have been trying to be as supportive as possible (I have been promoting & defending flickr to all my friends), but they are changing some of the functionality that I have come to rely over the years and now I am having a hard time keeping up 😦

flickr Extremely Slow

Actually I am being generous when I say “flickr is SLOW” – I have NOT been able to make any updates to my images all morning. Also, I have been trying to upload about 160 images since last nite and am still short of being upload the last 50+. Here is a list of actions I am not able to perform this morning:

  • View my own Photostream
  • Update Tag on a small batch (of less than 20 images)
  • List Calendar View of my images

The “New” Flickr App for iPhone

Just got the “new” flickr app for iPhone – finally I don’t have to use other photography services just because they had a cool app.

No, Flickr doesn’t have all the cool & fancy filters – but the app is much more functional than it has been.

  • Browse
  • Upload – cannot upload “video”
  • Manage

flickr – “Add a Person”

It’s a new feature that flickr has added quite recently – it allows flickr users to “Add a Person” specifically – instead of simply adding a tag with the person’s name.

To see a list of “people” added in my photostream click on http://www.flickr.com/photos/smriti/people/ and to see pix / images I have been added to as a Person click on http://www.flickr.com/people/smriti/photosof/

What most excites me about this particular feature – once I’m added to a pix (that is not mine), I have access to the pix even if it is not publicly available.

To add myself to a pix is really easy. All I have to do is be logged in as myself. Then as I find myself in a pix (no matter who owns the image), I simply click on the “Add a person” link to the right of the image (just above the tags).

flickr groups

OK, so I am a flickr addict (maybe there is a flickr anonymous or something out there that I ought to be signing up for), but even if I were not I think there should be a way to automate adding my images to various groups. It’s frustrating to have to do it all manually :o(
