Upload to Flickr by email

Upload photos to Flickr or your blog on the fly by sending yourself an email! Here's how.

Setting up your upload email address

Your account is equipped with an "upload email address" that you can send photos to.

Get started by configuring your upload email address and, optionally, link your blog to it.

Adding tags by email

When you send your upload email address a photo, you can easily add tags to it.

Just type "tags:" in the subject line or body of the email followed by the list of tag words.

Example of adding tags in the subject line:

Subject: Lucy, my new cat   tags: cute "black cat"
Body:

Lucy does the funniest dance moves!

Isn't she cute?

Example of adding tags in the body:

Subject: Lucy, my new cat
Body:

Lucy does the funniest dance moves!

Isn't she cute?

tags: cute "black cat"

(If you include tags in the email body, they must be at the beginning of a new line.)

  Title and description - Your title will be the remaining text of the subject line and your description will be the remaining text of the body.
