60+ Tools To Enhance Your Flickr Experience
Being a popular online image platform, Flickr has enabled Internet users to manage and share digital photos easily as long as there’s an Internet connection. Flickr is a revolution for photo sharing and management plus it has a huge community of photographers who provide great photos there for the world to see.

I’ve been using Flickr for about a year now and during this time one constant I’ve seen is regular bickering amongst Flickr members about this topic. I suppose any time you put a bunch of people in a room somewhere there will always be those who get more attention and those who get less attention. Of course admitting that we are obsessed with popularity is a somewhat unpopular thing to say in the first place as we all are fond of saying things, like, sure “I get lots of traffic, views, comments, favs, mentions on blogebrity, etc., but it’s not my motivation, my motives are pure.” Indeed. 1.

Blog Flickriver - A new way to view Flickr photos and more... idGettr — Find your Flickr ID Use the URL of your photostream to find the Flickr ID number (also works for groups). Flickr is a truly fantastic resource. Whether you're in the business of web design and need to find images for a new page, or you're simply trying to share your photography with the world, Flickr has something for everyone. One of the most common uses of Flickr is sourcing images under a Creative Commons license - if you're getting started on a new site or project, you're going to need some pictures. Unfortunately, many people go the stock photo route and end up overpaying for bland pictures, or simply using the same few “good” stock photos that so many other websites have taken advantage of. One very easy way of setting your site apart from the rest is to take fifteen minutes and track down some high quality original pictures and photographs to use on your site in place of boring stock images. At WebFX, we aim to make the entire Flickr process easier by providing this simple account ID lookup tool.
