Uploading to Flickr
There are 5 ways to upload your photos to Flickr
Via upload webpage
via the Flickr Uploadr (available for both PC and Mac)
via iPhoto, Aperture, or Windows XP plugins
via various free third-party desktop programs
Once you upload, you can do many things with your photos.
Sets-- a grouping of photos that you can organize around a certain theme, such as Our Family Vacation . You can use them to highlight your favorite photos, or make an album that is only pictures of your dog, or of photos you've taken with a particular camera.
Collections are a grouping of Sets (or other Collections) so you can organize around grander themes, such as People , Travels , or by year ( 2007 , 2006 , etc).
The Organizr is where both Collections and Sets are created. It also allows you to perform common tasks on large batches of photos, such as tagging, changing permissions, or editing timestamps. It’s really rather handy.
With millions of users, and hundreds of millions of photos, Flickr is an amazing photographic community, with sharing at its heart.
Groups are a way for people to come together around a common interest.
If you can’t find a group which interests you , it’s super-easy to start your own.
Groups can either be public, public (invite only), or completely private. Every group has a pool for sharing photos and a discussion board for talking.
Privacy is a common area for concern on the web, but on Flickr it’s easy to control who you share your images with. For each of your photos on Flickr you can set:
privacy level , which determines who can see your image
usage license , so your copyrights are protected
content type , flag your photos as either photos, artwork/illustrations, or screenshots
safety level , so other members only see images within their specified comfort zones
Change Privacy Settings
You can control how people can interact with your photos in Flickr.
You can choose who can see it
Who can make comments
Who can add notes
Who can add tags

Flickr's great for exploring photos by photographer, tag, time, text, and group, and it's also great for exploring photos by place.
Drag-and-drop your photos onto a map (using the Organizr) to show where you took them, or browse a world map to see where other people have been and what they saw.
