Using the Flickr Frames a Help Guide
« on: June 11, 2008, 08:38 AM »



1.To put a picture in the picture frame you first need a flickr account. The basic account is free and gives plenty of upload space.
2.You then upload your favorite pictures to your account.
3.You MUST make sure you set your pictures to anyone can view them. If they are set on private they will not show up for you in the search.
4.Now when you have your frame on the wall you click it and click configure.
5.When the box comes up you type in your flickr account name and hit search. A list of all your pictures you have on that account come up.
6.When you see a picture you want to add from your pics mouse over it and there is a + sign. Click that and it adds it to your frame.
7.You can also add multiple pics and under options set it up as a slide show.
8. Click Save
9. Click frame and click Security
10. Click owner as person who can use this item and move this item. No no one can change the frame.

Just adding a discovery we made last night: If someone else knows your account name on Flickr, they can include any of your pictures in their frames.

Correct any Flickr account can be used as long as it is not set to private. You can even search tags like disney and find accounts with Disney pictures. But if you set your account to private because you do not want someone else using it then it will not show up for you also.

It isn't neccessary to have a flickr account to add pictures to the frames.  You can search all the public images on Flickr using keywords.  That is what I did before I made my own account to upload my VMK images to.

Okay, I'm need some help.  I am tring to use one of my own imagfes to test the frame. The bottom 2/3rds of the photo are cut off in the frame.  Any suggestions?  Is there a setting I need to adjust on my uploads to Flickr?

Yay! A question I can answer, as I just did my Flickr a few days ago!

When you "configure" your frame, I noticed (thankfully) a choice that was prefilled with "crop"!  I opened that drop down, and chose "fit". 

So I think that may be what happened to your pic.  It got cropped.  Try choosing "fit" instead, so it will reduce the size of your pic to get it all in the frame.   (And choose purple for your filler.. it not only looks nice, but goes well with your employment!  :laugh2: )


PS: Thanks again Bug for providing these guides, they really helped me a lot!
