Managing your favorite photos on Flickr September 18, 2008

Posted by Raul in Uncategorized.

This post was inspired by and augmented by suggestions from Derek K. Miller and John Biehler, when I tweeted that I was annoyed at Flickr for not providing a chance to favorite my own photos. Here are Derek and John’s suggestions, which I have started to (slowly) implement on my Flickr sets.

Derek – Add a tag “yearfave” so that you can search easily on Flickr.

John – Create a set of “Favorites” so that you can add your favorite photos to that set.

I’m grateful to both John and Derek for providing these hints, as I am still not self-hosted and therefore, can’t use Flickr plugins yet that are available for WP.org. For example, Rebecca uses a really easy-to-use plugin that she uses when she writes her blog posts, and that allows her to quickly search photos and credit people for use of Creative-Commons-licensed photos. She presented about that topic on WordCamp Vancouver 2008 and you can read my notes of her talk here.
