Flickr and how?
« on: December 21, 2011, 11:19:07 AM »
I have an account with Photobucket but I see lots of people use Flickr so I have set up an account up on there, I want to do it right and make the Flickr account look good without looking like a plain site as it is, I need a little help. I have only got 3 photo's on that site at the moment but hope to get a good amount of photo's up over Christmas.

TBH Geff, not sure you can do much to make your Flickr site look good.

Not quite Tumblr or 500px in terms of customisation. Pretty much choose how many columns you want in your gallery and how you want the sets displayed, and that's it - unless i've missed something.
I know a few people who use it as their main site and thy've got nothing more than i have.

Flickr is popular, and a good way of sharing images, but it is not quite WordPress when it comes to making it look good.

I am reading all the jargon on Flickr now and there might be a way of making the site a bit more interesting rather than the bland pages, just need to read more up on the subject.

You can always send people to view via flickriver  - set the address to recent/most popular/sets etc. - it looks a bit better!

Flickr + Looks nice = www.500px.com

It's Guest's round
