Auto Upload Doesn’t Work Like It Used To
I have a couple of issues. First, auto upload from my phone once I am on a WiFi network stopped a few years ago and never returned with any real regularity. It used to be absolutely incredible.
Second, I signed up when this was free through SBCGlobal DSL subscription. It then went to Yahoo!. I am now a Comcast subscriber. My cell phones are through AT&T. Somehow, my flickr account creation email SBCGlobal was tied to my AT&T account (probably via Yahoo!). Every few months, my AT&T account will send an alert telling me something has been hacked and it cuts off my access to my SBCGlobal/Yahoo! Account access and demands I update my password. It is never a smooth ride and usually takes me a couple of hours to go through multiple account password changes before something takes. The problem is when this happens, I am locked out of my flickr account. I have over 72K images on flickr, so access is a must. No one seems to have an answer.
Other than those two things, I love flickr.
It’s Fun To Share Your Work
I am in the process of scanning thousands of 35 MM Negatives going back over a 36 yr period. Although I’ve received compliments over the years, I’ve seen much better work than mine. I also have collected photos from the internet and always mark those in capital letters, “not my photo”. I leave my own work Public and others people’s photos (sometimes taken only for the purposes of selling the subject in the photo, usually a vintage car) I rate “friends and family”. I have tried to share some of my pics on sites like FOAP in hopes of making a little money, but, from what I’ve read, photos with people in them are what buyers of stock photos want. I am not going to take someone’s picture and then chase them around with a Model release form in my hand for their signature. I am just going to do what I’ve always done and keep photography fun. The only tedious part of uploading photos is adding tags, but I guess it’s necessary.
The BEST photo sharing/storage/community app EVER!
I’ve been on Flickr for over 8 years and I’ve seen it’s evolution over those years. I don’t exaggerate when I say Flickr is the best app out there for all photographers. You’re given a very generous amount of free upload space (1TB) and unlimited space if you join the yearly subscription. Because of that I’ve started using it as a backup to my backup photo archive. It allows easy full resolution uploads. Besides that, I love the communities that are on Flickr. If there is a type of photography you like or type of camera or any kind of photography process, there is more than likely a community for it. If not you can easily start one. I’ve tried other photography apps but I keep coming back to Flickr. As I write this review, SmugMug just purchased Flickr. I’ve tried SmugMug too but I always felt like it’s focus was to sell you something. I hope SmugMug doesn’t make any drastic changes to this already perfect app!
