Image Hosting & Flickr

For those that didn’t realize, didn’t know or don’t care I host and store all my photo’s over on Flickr and I’ve been using the site personally since 2007. I only started using Flickr to host my Kamera Club images in May 2013, but have already amassed over 4000 images that have been published. I tried many hosting options before settling on Flickr, but the main reasons were that you got more control over your images on Flickr than other places. I tried Google+ and Google Photo’s, but they have a very strict policy on nudity and their automated system for checking images regularly removed the most obscure shots containing the odd boob, but would leave a full frontal shot alone!

With Flickr you have a lot more control and as long as you have your content and privacy settings correct, you can pretty much publish anything! I also find you have a lot more control over your images, who can see them, what size and what people can do with the images.

What I didn’t realize was how many sets I’d amassed in such a short space of time, 219! Thankfully your given a Terabyte of storage and I’ve not even touched 1% of it yet. I’m also a control freak, so all my sets are organised and in order, as you can see below 🙂

So, if you have a Flickr account feel free to head over to my account and take a look and follow it if you want. you’ll get to see most of my images, well those I’ve published and allow publicly anyway!

The only down side to Flickr is video hosting as they don’t allow very long clips, but I have a solution for that thankfully, so it’s not a deal breaker.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

  1. What is the URL for the Tumblr account.<br /><br />Thanks in anticipation

  2. I am new to this IT-tech. I welcome it because the beauty of the girls from the 50-ies and 60-ies is both a way to honour them, as well as to cultural history and certainly also a very good hint to selfstarving young girls of today.<br />Keep up your good work, I will contribute more if I only knew how. Have sent you two magazines, and I will send more as time goes by.Greetings from old Nils in
