Flickr pronounced "flicker" is an image hosting service and video hosting service. It was created by Ludicorp in It has changed ownership several times and has been owned by SmugMug since April The Verge reported in March that Flickr had a total of 87 million registered members and more than 3.
Registering an account also allows users to create a profile page containing photos and videos that the user has uploaded and also grants the ability to add another Flickr user as a contact. For mobile users, Flickr has official mobile apps for iOS Android and an optimized "Film commedia d amore yahoo dating" site.
The service emerged from tools originally created for Ludicorp's Game Neverendinga web-based massively multiplayer online game.
Flickr proved a more feasible project, and ultimately Game Neverending was shelved;  Butterfield later launched a similar online game, Glitchwhich closed down in November Early versions of Flickr focused on a chat room called FlickrLive, with real-time photo exchange capabilities. It was eventually dropped as Flickr's backend systems evolved away from Game Neverending ' s codebase.
Photos would close down on September 20,after which all photos would be deleted; users were encouraged to migrate to Flickr. Flickr upgraded its services from " beta " Film commedia d amore yahoo dating " gamma " status in May ; the changes attracted positive attention from Lifehacker. On March 2, Film commedia d amore yahoo dating, Flickr added the facility to upload and view HD videosand began allowing free users to upload normal-resolution video.
At the same time, the set limit for free accounts was lifted. Inthis was changed so that users could label images as suitable for stock use themselves. On May 20,Flickr launched the first stage of a major site redesign, introducing a "Justified View" close-spaced photo layout  browsed via "infinite scrolling" and adding new features, including one terabyte of free storage for all users, a scrolling home page mainly of contacts photos and comments and updated Android app.
Tech Radar described the new style Flickr as representing a "sea change" in its purpose. On May 7,Yahoo! The new Uploadr application was made available for Macs, Windows and mobile devices. In JuneFlickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield announced his resignation, which followed that of his wife and co-founder Caterina Fakewho left the company on June 13, On December 14,The Guardian reported that three employees had been laid off as Yahoo!
Flickr was specifically named as a target for these layoffs. On June 13,Verizon Communications acquired Yahoo!
Flickr has always offered two types of accounts: Until January 7,free accounts have up to 1 TB of storage. On January 8, the account offerings will Film commedia d amore yahoo dating. The free option will be limited to photos or videos stored, with videos limited to 3 minutes. After January 8,members over the limit will no longer be able to upload new photos to Flickr.
Film commedia d amore yahoo dating February 5,a free account's older content will be deleted automatically if it contains more than 1, photos and they do not subscribe to Pro,  with the exception of content that was already uploaded with a Creative Commons license before November 1, In MayFlickr added an option to easily reverse an account termination, motivated by the accidental deletion of a Flickr user's account, and public reporting of its protracted restoration.
The images a photographer uploads to Flickr go into their sequential "photostream", the basis of a Flickr account. All photostreams can be displayed as a justified view, a slide showa "detail" view or a datestamped archive. Clicking on a photostream image opens it in the interactive "photopage" alongside data, comments and facilities for embedding images on external sites.
Users may label their uploaded images with titles and descriptions, and images
Film commedia d amore yahoo dating be taggedeither by the uploader or by other users, if the uploader permits it.
These text components enable computer searching of Flickr. Flickr was an early website to implement tag cloudswhich were used untilproviding access to images tagged with the most popular keywords.
Tagging was further revised in the photopage redesign of March Flickr has been cited as a prime example of effective use of folksonomy. Film commedia d amore yahoo dating can organize their Flickr photos into "albums" formerly "sets" which are more flexible than the traditional folder-based method of organizing files, as one photo can belong to one album, many albums, or none at all.
Flickr provides code to embed albums into blogs, websites and forums. Flickr albums represent a form of categorical metadata rather than a physical hierarchy. Geotagging can be applied to photos in albums,  and any albums with geotagging can be related to a map using imapflickr.
The resulting map can be embedded in a website. Organizr is a Web application for organizing photos within a Flickr account that can be accessed through the Flickr interface. It allows users to modify tags, descriptions and set groupings, and to place photos on a world map a feature provided in conjunction with Yahoo! It uses Ajax to emulate the look, feel and quick functionality of desktop-based photo-management applications, such as Google's Picasa and F-Spot.
Users can select and apply changes to multiple photos at a time, as an alternative to the standard Flickr interface for editing. Flickr provides both private and public image storage. A user uploading an image can set privacy controls that determine who can view the image.
A photo can be flagged as either public or private. Privacy settings also can be decided by adding photographs from a user's photostream to a "group pool". If a group is private all the members of that group can see the photo. If a group is public the photo becomes public as well. Flickr also provides a "contact list" which can be used to control image access for a specific set of users in a way similar to that of LiveJournal.
In NovemberFlickr created a "guest pass" system that allows private photos to be shared with non-Flickr members.
This setting allows sets or all photos under a certain privacy category friends or family to be shared. By default, other members can leave comments about any image they have permission to view and, in many cases, can add to the list of tags associated with an image.
This includes a large number of third-party Greasemonkey scripts that enhance and extend the functionality of Flickr. InFlickr was the second most extended site on userscripts. Images can be posted to the user's photostream via email attachments, which enables direct uploads from many cameraphones and applications.
Flickr uses the Geo microformat on over 3 million geotagged images. "Film commedia d amore yahoo dating" Flickr users can "Follow" the Photostreams of other Flickr photographers. Reciprocating this process is optional. Groups are another major means of interaction with fellow members of Flickr around common photography interests. A Flickr Group can be started by any Flickr user, who becomes its administrator and can appoint moderators.
Groups may either be open access or invitation-only, and most have an associated pool of photos. The administrator of the Flickr group can monitor and set restrictions for the group, assign awards to members, and may curate and organize the photo content. Recent uploads to a group will sometimes appear on its members' homepages. Group photo pools may be displayed in the "Justified View" or as a slideshow.
Any Flickr user can post comments to a Flickr photo on its photopage, unless this has been disabled by the uploader, and users can "favorite" a photo. A user's favorites can be viewed in a justified or slideshow display. They can also automatically update their status on other Social networking service when they upload their images to Flickr. Uploadr allows drag-and-drop batch uploading of photos, the setting of tags and descriptions for each batch, and the editing of privacy settings.
Flickr has entered into partnerships with many third parties. Flickr had a partnership with the Picnik online photo-editing application that included a reduced-feature version of Picnik built into Flickr as a default photo editor.
Flickr offers printing of various forms of merchandise, including business cards, photo books, stationery, personalized credit cards and large-size prints from companies such as MooBlurbTiny PrintsCapital OneImagekind and QOOP. The Flickr partnership with Getty Images to sell stock photos from users is under review as of early There are some restrictions on searches for certain types of users: The system achieves a fairly good separation of family-friendly photos and adult content; generic image searches normally produce no pornographic results, with the visibility of adult content restricted to users and dedicated Flickr communities who have opted into viewing it.
Flickr has used this filtering system to change the level of accessibility to "unsafe" content for entire nations, including South KoreaHong Kong and Germany. In summerGerman users staged a "revolt" over being assigned the user rights of a minor.
Flickr offers users the ability to either release their images under certain common usage licenses or label them as " all rights reserved ". The licensing options primarily include the Creative Commons 2. As with " tags ", the site allows easy searching of only those images that fall under a specific license.
Several museums and archives post images released under a "no known restrictions" license, which was first made available on January 16, According to Flickr, the goal of the license is to "firstly show you hidden treasures in the world's public photography archives, and secondly to show how your input and knowledge can help make these collections even richer.
The photos were initially posted with a Creative Commons Attribution license requiring that the original photographers be credited. Flickr later created a new license which identified them as "United States Government Work", which does not carry any copyright restrictions.
CC0 is used for works that are still protected by copyright or neighbouring rights, but where the rightsholders choose to waive all those rights. On June 12,in the wake of the rollout of localized language versions of the site, Flickr implemented a user-side rating system for filtering out potentially controversial photos. Simultaneously, users with accounts registered with Yahoo! Many Flickr users, particularly in Germany, protested against the new restrictions, claiming unwanted censorship from Flickr and Yahoo.
Flickr management, unwilling to go into legal details, implied that the reason for the stringent filtering was some unusually strict age-verification laws in Germany. The issue received attention in the German national media, especially in online publications.
Initial reports indicated that Flickr's action was a sensible, if unattractive, precaution against prosecution,  Film commedia d amore yahoo dating later coverage implied that Flickr's action may have been unnecessarily strict.
Since June 1,Flickr has been blocked in China in advance of the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests of Under OCILLA, a service provider such as Flickr is obliged to delete or disable access to content as soon as they receive an official notice of infringement, to maintain protection from liability. Even if the user could successfully demonstrate that the content did not infringe upon any Film commedia d amore yahoo dating, Flickr did not, according to Gorman, replace the deleted content.
He argued that this was contrary to its obligations in responding to a counter-notice. Find your Asian beauty at the leading Asian dating site with over million members. to advanced messaging features; Trusted site backed by Cupid Media. Media Centre. D. L. PF.
