Yes, of course there is. Flickr is a great place to get your name out there and for me is a place to put the files that get declined from this site. You get to meet some great new people and look at what other shots are out there, which may inspire you for something for here. You also get awards on there and other recognition, so what are you waiting for get a google account and get a FREE Flickr account.rnrnHere my flickr account feel free to add as a contact look forward to seeing you work rnrnhttp:... continue reading
I just checked my Flickr mail and found out that one of the shots that I submitted to one of my groups for constructive criticism has been posted on the South Florida NPR radio station. I have contacted them and they are going to post the watermarked version that I have online here as the image instead of the version that I have on my flickr.A link to the postinghttp://wlrnunderthesun.org/2009/09/south-florida-photo-of-the-week-92909/The DT image continue reading

As I am deciding to open a Flickr account and start using it as a way to share photos, get critiques, and maybe even drive sales to Dreamstime, I wanted to toss out one more question:Does anyone have comments on Picasa?Several people have commented eloquently on their happiness with Flickr, and I have seen how active that community seems to be.On the other hand, much of my life is already integrated into my Google account, and so I don't want to toss away this option without at least giving... continue reading
I have noticed that many of my fellows Dreamstimes members maintain active Flickr sites.I've enjoyed looking through those, and have gotten lots of great inspiration from the photos.I'm wrestling with the idea of creating my own Flickr site.I see a couple pros, and a couple cons.On the positive side, I can see that sharing photos is (almost) always satisfying.Once the shots are on Flickr, it's no work at all to get them to clients, family, friends. . .I have a sense that Flickr... continue reading
