Flickr for beginners

With the possibility that the future of this site may not include the gallery I have taken a look at Flickr

I find I have had an account since 2012, uploaded no photographs and have one follower

I am sure there are loads of tutorials out there and if the response from you all is RTFM that's fine, but I thought I would ask for best practise in the following areas as I know a number of you use it
  1. Photo sizes and how well it handles resizing
  2. Protection from download (I know there are many ways around that, but to turn off the easy options
  3. How to use it in forum postings (of course)
  4. Display options to make your pictures look good (my website has a very plain dark grey background can I do similar?)
  5. Integration with other platforms (I note the juicebox gallery I use on my website has options I have never looked at)
  6. etc.

My Kit (OK I'm a hoarder...)
4/3 E500, E510, E30 + 35macro, 50macro, 7-14, 11-22, 14-45 (x2), 14-54, 40-150 (both types), 50-200, 70-300, 50-500,
m 4/3 EM1MkII + 60 macro, 12-100 Pro
FL20, FL36 x2 , FL50, cactus slaves etc.
The Boss (Mrs Shenstone) E620, EM10-II, 14-41Ez, 40-150R, 9 cap and whatever she can nick from me when she wants it
