Re: Coming to terms using flckr - Advice appreciated.

I wouldn't call myself an advanced flickr user by any means but compared to some of the sites I've seen on flickr I'd say its an excellent first attempt and I enjoyed looking at the photos. The only comment I would make is that some of the shots looking into the valley are quite similar. Maybe show only one or two? Having said that, and to the contrary, I like the way you've grouped the three birds together!

Thanks. I was trying show the Three Sisters in different light & from various vantage points. Just my idea of a collection around them. Unfortunately, I've only shot morning shots, since that was the time I was passing through for that time.

Re: Coming to terms using flckr - Advice appreciated.

flickr is a good source of income ,once your photos are stolen for commercial use sign up to pixys.com to sue them for you ,I made in excess of 2000 pounds last year from them ,you wouldn't believe some of the high profile companies that think its ok to steal your work

Re: Coming to terms using flckr - Advice appreciated.

you sign up to pixys.com you get 500 matches f.o.c then allow them to access your flickr account ,then they send you matches .if any have been used commercially in a country that allows you to sue for image theft they do it on your behalf using worldwide solicitors ,really does work though they take 50% of the winnings but the 2000+ was my cleared payments ,one of mine was a international travel company .the mind boggles

Are you sure about that URL Blackfox? Comes up as a company specialising in control room software for me.

in fact the ones that were uplifted and stolen from my flickr were very old obscure shots from the early 2000's ,none of them had a added copyright , and nothing special .
there are still lots stolen usually by Russian/chinese/asian companies that do contain copyright but cannot be chased up . or by BOTS systems using them . but still enough to make it worth your while chasing things up . and once you start matching you'll be amazed how rife it is

That website looks very good blackfox. I've not tried it out properly yet though as I'd expect there are quite a lot of T&Cs to read through.
I'm flattered that you think my Flickr site has some commercial quality Henry. Me thinks you are too kind but you've certainly made me curious about checking this out.

It also allows photos to be added to multiple albums as part of the upload process.
Say you've 20 photos to upload, 10 of which all need the same title, just select the relevant photos in the left hand pane with Control/left-click and caption/tag them all at the same time.

More importantly for me, it's all done external to the website/browser, though when everything's uploaded, it links you there to confirm each set of uploads.
Since I use Olympus Viewer 3 frequently (for downloading & resizing etc) I also knew it had the sharing feature as well but I got this yahoo message though.



However, it still works & also allows multiple selection if necessary, adding title & description etc.

Re: Coming to terms using flckr - Advice appreciated.

Glad it works for someone

I registered with Pixsy a while back linking in my Flickr and Instagram accounts.
They then changed their matching algorithm so every image on the internet of a black and white floor matches my Versailles shot

I switched to the high accuracy setting and almost all my matches are Instagram and Flickr aggregators and Pinterest - so no money there


You can also use the TinEye plugin for Firefox to search. That found a couple of blogs using my images - one motoring blog is STILL using my Mini images 7 years later, albeit "crediting me" via Flickr they never asked for permission.
I suspect there's nothing worth pursuing there either.

Re: Coming to terms using flckr - Advice appreciated.

I mentioned the earlier version of Flickr Uploadr previously in this thread. I've now processed a few more photos so here's a screenshot of it in action;
It's also entirely independent of the browser, and can be used as a standalone program; after uploading, it provides a radio button to open your default browser in Flickr to verify and fine tune uploads.

One useful time saving feature, for batch uploads, is that I could add the text "<sp> , seen during a stroll round the site of the old Lightwood reservoir, Buxton" to all images at the same time.

Similarly, many of the tags were added to all images in bulk. Note the leading space above and there is a similar trailing space added in the tag list.

The files had already been saved as e.g. "B7310033_DxO-1 Marmalade Hoverfly - Episyrphus balteatus.jpg", (which is then auto filled in from the original filename into Uploadr) so all I need to do is delete the first bit from the title field, and copy/drag the remaining bit to the description and tag fields.

It saves lots of repetitive typing and/or copy/pasting.

Probably little of this is applicable to the carefully considered upload of one's finest images, but is very handy for doing batches 30 or 40 at the same time.



For interest, this is the photo highlighted there, but hosted in smaller form on my gallery here;


and a link to the uploaded photo in Flickr with the tags etc added, most of which were added to multiple images at the same time in the Uploadr;

https://www.flickr.com/photos/peak4/...etaken-public/

Don't expect too much in the way of high quality photographic art on my flickr account though.
Some of this batch of photos are OK, others appalling, but added so I can point people at them for ID purposes; other albums are for personal holiday memories, or just image hosting for discussion of individual photos elsewhere.
Some are also on Faceache, but obviously not everyone is able to access that either.

Re: Coming to terms using flckr - Advice appreciated.

Thanks for that. I notice only Pro flickr accounts get the current uploader but I'll have to checkout this older version then.
