  • Intro, and a little bit about myself?
  • Flickr is primarily about photo sharing – whether it’s sharing personal photos with family, or event/conference photos with other attendees (or non-attenders)
    APHA (American Public Health Association) – use Flickr as a photo pool for their Annual Meeting
    SaTH NHS use Flickr as a way of promoting themselves online – currently photos of development work, but also general photos of the Hospital
  • A useful feature of Flickr is the ability of users to tag their photos under ‘Creative Commons’ licences – this is a way for the owner to state they would like you to share the photo (Wikipedia has a good explanation if the licence types) – usually only in return for citing them as the owner and on the understanding you don’t change it or earn money from it
    Can then use these images on websites, printed leaftets, patient information for free
  • Easy – both to share your images and to find images to use in web pages, leaflets, etc etc
    Different – sometimes find something a little unusual – or just not the same stock image as everyone else!
