How To Organize your Photos and Video

There is also a space to enter tags on the right on each photo page and you can add tags when using Organizer. To enter tags, type some keywords relevant to the picture, with spaces in between, like “sky park dog blue grass green”. Don’t have any idea about tags, just visit this page to see most popular tags on Flick r- flickr.com/photos/tags/. Don’t want to share your photos publicly, don’t worry, here is a solution, when you upload your photos, check the box that says “Public” or “Private”. Private photos are completely hidden from everyone except you. Now, if you want to be visible to your family or friends, simple, just check those boxes. You can change the privacy of something at any time by clicking on the red (for private) or green (for public) button. You can also set up a private group and invite your friends and family to join it. If you invite them from the group’s page, they are automatically made a member.
