You may export photos in your Photosmith catalog to Flickr, Yahoo's popular photo hosting service. For more information about Flickr and to sign up for a free account, visit www.flickr.com.
Prior to exporting photos to Flickr, you must first link your Flickr account to Photosmith by tapping on the Link Account button. This will either a) launch the Flickr iOS app (if it's installed on your iPad), or b) the Safari web browser. Tap Allow to complete the linking/authentication process. Linking authorizes Photosmith permission to upload/write JPG files to your Flickr stream.
You may choose if you want your uploaded photo(s) to be seen by everyone or just friends and family, as defined by Flickr. To view or edit your friends and family list, do so via your Flickr account settings on Flickr’s website. If you want to make your exported photo(s) publicly visible on Flickr, tap the Publicly visible checkbox. Otherwise, if left unchecked, your photo(s) exported to Flickr will be viewable only by friends and family.
Flickr calls photo albums "Sets." Tapping the Include in Set checkbox will give you the option to include your uploaded JPG photo(s) into a Flickr Set. Either type a new Set name in the text box, or tap the circle to the right of the text box to browse and select from a list of your already-created Flickr Sets.
You may choose to export your photo(s) to Flickr at a specific resolution, as measured by the longest edge:
- Small: 160 pixels
- Med: 640 pixels
- Large: 1024 pixels
- Max: Full resolution of the photo stored in Photosmith’s catalog
Note: You may not upload the same photo more than once to Flickr. If you do, it will silently not upload, and will not overwrite an identical existing photo stored on Flickr.
An Internet connection is required to send photos to Flickr.
