Share or embed Flickr photos or albums

When you have hilarious, adorable, or stunning photos and videos you love, it's easy to proudly share them. Flickr offers a variety of ways to share images from your computer, including sending them to social media sites, email options, embedding on a website, and more.

Share a photo or album using social media or grab a link to it

When you click the Share icon Right-pointing arrow, you can quickly:

  • Share with social media - share individual photos or albums on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and Pinterest.
  • Copy a link to the photo page or album - Whether it's public or private, you can get a link to the photo page or album to share with others. Private content generates a Guest Pass link so only people with the URL can see it.
