TUTORIAL

FLICKR SCREENSHOTS/ILLUSTRATIONS
How to properly post a screenshot or an illustration on Flickr.

Recently Flickr has changed its policy on safe contents, while before that some people used to be NIPSAed.
What does NIPSA mean?
It stands for Not In Public Site Areas, and the NIPASed accounts do not show up in public search (if you want to know more about NIPSA see here)

Now that the new filters are in use, you can avoid any flagging of your screenshot or illustration by labeling them properly.

Here are two methods for setting the content type while uploading the photos:

1 UPLOADING FROM THE WEB
-in your flickr home page click Upload Photos




-click “show more upload settings”



-a large menu will come out, where you can set your file content (photo/screenshot/illustration) or safety level.



2 UPLOADR UPLOADING
-look for the “content type” menu on the right


Here are two methods for changing the content type on uploaded photos:

1 ON THE PHOTO PAGE

-on the bottom right of your photo page find the link Flag your photo



-set the content type





2
ORGANIZE MODE

-click on “Organize” button on the tool bar

-once in the organize window, you can drag in the center as many photo as you like (in my example I just used one) and click the Permission button


-chose from the menu “Set content type”


-set the content type


-go back to your home page by clicking the Your Photo link on top right of the page


TIP for Etsians: use one of these methods to set the content of your treasury screenshots...and happy flickring!
