Adding Photos to Flickr

Our web site's slide shows are powered by Flickr.  The reason for this is that you can go join the groups and add photos to the group pool, and those photos will automatically appear in the slide show.

 

Here's how to get an account on Flickr if you don't already have one:

  1. Go to http://www.flickr.com/
  2. Click on the "Create Your Own Account" button
  3. If you happen to already have a Yahoo! account, you can just enter that in the appropriate text boxes (Yahoo! ID and password); otherwise, click on "Sign up for Yahoo!"
  4. Fill in the info and click "Create My Account" and follow any remaining instructions.

 

When you have a Flickr account, you can add photos to your own profile:

  1. After you log in, you will see a set of menu items along the top (Home, You, Organize & Create, etc).
  2. Click the little arrow beside "You" and click on "Upload Photos and Videos" near the bottom.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Once your photos are uploaded you will see them when you click on "You" - clicking here brings you to your photostream, which is just a big long list of all your photos.
  5. You will probably want to organize your photos into sets.  Play around with the "Organize & Create" menu and be sure to consult the Flickr FAQ as needed.

 

When you have a Flickr account, add photos to a group as follows:

  1. First navigate to one of our Flickr groups (for example, the main club group).
  2. Above the photos showing on the web page is a title called "Group Pool" - this refers to the "pool" of photos members add to the group.  You will add photos that are already on your own profile as if the group pool were just another set your photos can belong to.
  3. Beside Group Pool click "Add Something?"
  4. You can choose up to 6 photos from our photo stream to be added to the group pool.  You can do this as often as you like.
